I guess that’s a weird way to start my bio because who else would I be? hehe! The interesting thing is that I have named myself that.. My birth name I had no control over, as my parents named me. And trust me I love my birth name, it has helped shaped me the who I am. I’ve always found names to be important. But recently it became evident that I needed to give myself a name, and so SuCh was born. I like SuCh because not only is it a hybrid of my real name, Su Charles, but also is full of meaning. The word such is used in two ways: 1) to emphasize a quality “he has such a good heart” 2) to show a similarity “such as”. That is who I strive to be as a person, someone who amplifies and exemplifies what is good, beautiful, and real. It’s of utmost importance that my music reflects those things.
So this is not going to be a traditional bio with large flowery words. Rather it’s going to be me, unfiltered, talking to you.
Now that you know my name, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m SuCh. It’s a pleasure to meet you, it’s an honor that you’ve come to my website just to find out a little more about my music and who I am. So here’s me in a nutshell: I love the color red, always have. My favorite number is 5. I was born 5/5/85 at 11:55; that’s five 5’s. I’m not the best at multitasking, though I like to pretend that I am. I love smiling and laughing. I’m a pretty happy person. Sometimes my thoughts move faster than my mouth; when that happens I stumble on my words. Some people find that endearing, others annoying. I love music, always have. I’ve been singing since I can remember. Its the one thing my whole life, that I’ve never stopped doing. I’m the daughter of a minister and I remember being a wee little thing, singing in the children’s choir. I also loooove directing choirs. There is something exhilarating about empowering others and letting them shine while you take a backseat and watch them fly.
Ultimately my personality is summed up in my dream car, a Mini Cooper Countryman. Six speed, AWD, four door, and can you guess what color…? You got it!! Red. Like the mini I’m zippy, cute, but fierce, a force to reckon with, and I’m full of surprises. I want my license plate to read: ‘PPTPRED’. Which means that big things come in small packages (‘pi piti pi red’ in Haitian Kreyol) :)
I want you to get to know me, through my lyrics, through my music. I want you to be able to relate to it, to jam to it, to cry to it; to experience life. Let’s go on this journey! I know that with you by my side, it’s going to be an interesting, fulfilling ride.
You’re ready? Let’s Go!
