Following their captivating performance at the Wychwood Festival, Susanna & The Magical Orchestra will be playing Cardiff in July and The Big Chill Festival in August
Captivating performers, Susanna and The Magical Orchestra, perform heart-rending versions of classics like Jolene alongside brilliantly insightful lyrics of their originals.
Susanna Wallumrød and Morton Qvenild's debut album was one of the most celebrated of 2004. From the hard to please jazz critics to the vanguards of fashion, Susanna won a host of fans who fell in love with her evocative, heart rending voice set against an atmospheric electronic backdrop
“The hushed, guileless beauty of this debut is a rare treasure indeed. Wallumrød’s voice takes your breath away, a presence as bewitching and unfathomable as any you’ll encounter” The Observer Music Monthly
“Like a broken-hearted, fragile-minded majorette, Susanna Wallumrød throws dazzling notes in the air and dares Morten Qvenild’s sparse electronica to catch them” **** THE GUARDIAN
“Beautiful, spare, hypnotic, like Sinatra’s Where Are You? Aimee Mann’s Bachelor No2 and all great torch-song collections” **** MOJO
“Breathtakingly beautiful, deceptively simple, deeply affecting collection of ghostly electronic melancholia. A dolorous delight.” ****UNCUT
“Wallumrød’s voice takes your breath away – a presence as bewitching and unfathomable as any you’ll encounter in 2004.” OBSERVER
“ It’s not exactly fun, fun, fun – but as small-hours pondering records go, it’s a keeper.”
