Singing in front of a mirror with a hairbrush-as-microphone is how it all started for Susie. She wanted to be a pop star. Fast forward to the age of 14 when a crush on Brent the Skater prompted her to buy some albums he listened to. After realizing that skaters only care about skating, the crush was crushed and music became a bit of an obsession. At 15, guitars and such were acquired and she starting playing in a pop punk trio comprised of her best friend and subsequent boyfriend, officially becoming the third wheel among other things. In the mid-90s, she joined Pohgoh (and wrote “Friend X”, dubbed “one of the best songs ever written by any band ever" according to Scott Heisel of Alternative Press) and also played in The Maccabees (not the UK band). After a 20+ year break, Susie is currently back together with Pohgoh, who released their sophomore effort 'Secret Club' (produced by J. Robbins) in 2018. Recent tours with fellow 90's bands Mineral and Jawbreaker followed along with a pre-pandemic headline tour of Japan in the fall of 2019. She's currently writing what will be Pohgoh's 3rd full length while the country chills out during these strange times.
