Susana Williams is a producer and composer based out of the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia.
Her musical career began in Caracas, Venezuela at the age of 13 when a professional band began rehearsing in her apartment building’s basement. The group of musicians let her sing one day for a laugh – only to hire her on the spot after recognizing a natural, powerful voice.
From there she began singing everything from folk music to rock and roll while writing her own music and learning to play drums, congas and guitar.
By the time she was 15, Susana had won best singer at The Festival of New Music in Caracas, had earned a scholarship at the Roland Learning Centre of Music and was playing four nights a week at local nightclubs while going to high school during the day.
By 22 she had one of the hottest acts in the Caracas nightlife, where people lined up around the block to watch her perform her unique mix of Latin and Anglo pop and rock.
In the meantime she did back up vocals for famous Latin singers like Venezuelan artists Frank Quintero and Kiara and collaborated with Pedro Castillo when she was Signed by Airo Music.
In 1998 Susana left Venezuela and immigrated to Canada. She has since released “Latin Roots” (2004), and “Dejame Contarte” (EP, July 2020). Her new solo album “We’re a Memory” (2021) will be released on June 21,2021.
As a vocalist and percussionist, her Vancouver credits include several Vancouver International Jazz Festivals, the Victoria Jazz Festival, and the 2010 Winter Olympics.
She has shared the stage with internationally award-winning artists Arturo Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, Johnny Rivera, Adonis Puente and Alex Cuba.
Susana can be regularly seen performing in and around Vancouver with the largest Latin-Jazz music orchestra in western Canada, Goma Dura, and as a solo artist.
She is also the Musical Director of “Raices y Alas Flamenco” the avant-guard experimental flamenco dance company based in Vancouver, B.C and a film and TV composer for Melodie, Australia.
