ALEXIS P SUTER
American Roots & Blues Music
When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder, in his characteristic way, he remarked,
“...It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”
Alexis has earned similar honors from other well-known musicians and performers
including Dan Aykroyd and Levon Helm of The Band.
Alexis P. Suter is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn
into the heart of North America and beyond. Alexis P. and her band are on the rise
as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town.
Miss Suter and her powerful and unique ensemble artfully blend the lines between Blues, Soul, Roots and Rock music.
Alexis' voice ranges from a pained passion to explosive and soul bearing.
Her newest album, Be Love, hit the streets on March 18th and has received excellent reviews and is
receiving airplay in both the Blues and Americana/Roots communities.

STEVE OVADIA - BLUES ROCK MAGAZINE
There’s nothing subtle about Alexis P. Suter. On Be Love, she uses her powerful voice to own every track.
She’s backed by a talented band, but Suter’s vocal talents are impossible to ignore.

The rocking, enormous power of Suter and her band is on full display with this release (Be Love),
one that captures the power of their live performances.
MARTY GUNTHER - BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE
All For Loving You is a rock-solid production from beginning to end
and a worthy addition to your collection if your tastes run to contemporary blues,
and Alexis’ seemingly rough-hewn vocals are as sweet as they are strong.
