Susana Abreu's singing career began in Caracas Venezuela when a professional band began rehearsing in her apartment buildings 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 was playing 4 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 Puerto Rican singer Johnny Rivera. and In 1998 Susana left Venezuela and immigrated to Canada. There she played in and around Vancouver while getting her degree in Psychology from UBC. In December 2004 she releases LATIN ROOTS, her debut album, a collection of her own lyrics and music.
