Since an early age Suzanne Brindamour has had a passion for music, art and helping others.

Creative pursuits filled Brindamour’s youth and later became a consuming passion.  A degree in communications led to work in both television and radio production.

By the time she decided to enter the spotlight as a singer, songwriter in 1998 she had written music for “National Geographic Explorer,” “America’s Most Wanted,” and Mercedes Benz; and a radio ad campaign that won her a first place ADDY award.

Over the next decade she performed regularly, worked in video production, taught guitar lessons, and worked as musician-in-residence at a children’s hospital providing therapy through music.  She also released 2 CDs of original songs to rave reviews (The Washington Post, On Tap, The Gazette) and tracks were used in both film and network television. Early recordings were self-reflective, contemplative and drew on personal struggle including the loss of her mother to cancer that inspired the song “Waiting in the Wings.”  

While Brindamour’s writing progressed, so did her desire to encourage love and reverence for all life—themes found in much of her later material.  She has gravitated toward projects with themes of peace and unity, writing music in 2009 for the PBS documentary film “Barnstorming,” and working as associate producer for another documentary called “Pictures From a Hiroshima Schoolyard,” an inspiring story of reconciliation just nearing completion.  She also channels her creativity and passion into tiny works of art, making pendants from clay with various symbols of peace. 

Currently she is working to build Artists for World Harmony, while completing her 3rd CD of songs on guitar and ukulele, due to come out in the Spring of 2014.
