Suzanne 'Sooz' Shea

Suzanne’s early teen years found her playing Folk music at the Heritage Coffeehouse in San Diego where she got her first booking at age 17 (Tom Waits was the doorman/ folk singer she would talk to about her love of music!). The next 22 years she was singing 5-6 nights a week in restaurants, clubs, and hotel lounges. Life went along… ups downs… some hard losses and some major wins. She took on secure day jobs, married, and started a family in her late 30’s,, Music kept going part-time because that was the thread she held onto dearly.


Taking care of other’s feelings since she was a youngster was part of “who she was”, her ‘job”, she thought. She’d put on a happy face, but by age 51 inside she was crumbling. Her health was heading for a crash, a crash she felt she couldn’t stop. One morning, January 15, 2001, Suzanne stopped the crash when she met someone who got her on her road to her center and true self.

Now at age 62, Suzanne has been truly enjoying her “Second Chapter” as she calls it, She is healthy and strong. She feels she was given the big picture that day in 2001. She is enjoying grabbing the rings in life. She is honored to be a mom to two incredible sons, honored to have the love of family and friends who are treasures to her. Her lifelong touchstone, music, is still there, true as ever. Some new doors have presented themselves as well, now and Sooz has stepped through them into Acting, Modeling, and even a sprinkling of Stand Up comedy. Maybe one day her own Variety Show that features the positive in life? Why not? Life is this second, and this second is very good.
