Suzanna Smith is an emerging talent on the Bay Area jazz scene. With sparkling charm, a golden tone and an innate sense of swing, Suzanna joyfully brings classic jazz standards to life...singing each song as if it's the one she wants her audience to remember her by.

Suzanna lists Anita O'Day, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn, Shirly Horn, Chet Baker, Julie London, Patsy Cline and Otis Redding as her influences. Drawing from this diverse group, Suzanna has developed a sound and style that is totally unique. Her soulful blend is simple, yet sophisticated — true and distinctive.

Currently studying at the Berkeley Jazzschool and privately with jazz vocalist Kitty Margolis, Suzanna has also studied with Madeline Eastman, Laurie Antonioli, Kenny Washington, Maye Cavallaro, and Stephanie Bruce, pianist Jeffrey Gaeto, and pianist Kelly Park, owner of the former East Bay jazz hotspot Kelly's of Alameda.

Suzanna performs third Saturdays at Savanna Jazz in San Francisco. From 2006-2007, Suzanna entertained audiences every other Friday night at Kelly's of Alameda in Alameda, CA; a run cut short only by the sale of the venue. In addition, she has performed in San Francisco at The Octavia Lounge, The Purple Onion, Bistro Yoffi, The Jazzschool and The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, Bacio Cafe in San Mateo and at private events around the Bay Area.

Suzanna continues to win over Bay Area audiences, bringing warmth and grace to each performance and leaving a room full of new fans.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
