On November 10th, Baltimore-based singer songwriter Suzannah shares her solo debut record, Is There Any Love In Your Heart. Glide Magazine, who compared her evocative sound to the "bygone country aroma of Linda Rondstadt and Emmylou Harris" and Beats Per Minute described her sound as a "Cocteau Twins covering Patsy Cline."
Is There Any Love In Your Heart is an album about forgiveness and redemption, grace and mercy. It’s about being up against something bigger than oneself, a foe, a force trying to hold one back. It’s about having your name tarnished, your heart ripped out. It’s about being dragged through the mud. You look back. How do you respond? What can you do? It’s about having gotten too close to something you shouldn’t have seen, having been deep down in the darkness and coming out on the other side. You may not be fully healed, and you’re forever changed, but by the grace of God you escaped a worse fate. Have you forgiven? Can you show mercy when it wasn’t shown to you? Is there any love in your heart?
