Susana is synonymous with the highest quality in vocal trance. She has an enviable back-catalogue of truly great chart topping collaborations including #1 DJ Armin van Buuren (Desiderium 207, Shivers, If You Should Go), Ernesto vs Bastian (Dark Side of the Moon), Omnia & The Blizzard (Closer) & Rex Mundi (Nothing at All) to name a few. On the success of these releases it was inevitable that “Armin Only” wanted to use her incredible vocal talents on no less than two separate tours in 2009 and 2011. Many other global tours including Holland, Poland, Romania, Russia, Australia, the US, Lebanon and Jordan have followed and have established Susana at the pinnacle of vocalists in the genre.
The release of her debut album is not the only development that made 2010 an important year for Susana. In June Markus Schulz’ new album “Do You Dream?” was released including the track “Unsaid” featuring the vocals of Susana. She also provided vocals for Armin van Buuren’s new artist album “Mirage”. On their intro track “Desiderium 207” 20101113_ArminOnlyMirageJaarbeursUtrechtNetherlands_KevinVerkruijssen_AOM_100people can hear a different side of Susana’s voice as she shows her versatility with haunting classical vocals that add to the dramatic feel of the opening of Armin’s new album. She was therefore also part of the second Armin Only tour, the “Mirage” tour, which saw its kick off in Utrecht (Netherlands) on November 13th 2010 and then continued on to countries like Russia, Argentina, Australia, Lebanon and Poland in 2011. Not only did Susana perform “Desiderium 207” as part of a dramatic opening of the show, but also “Closer”, “Orbion” and “Shivers”.
In the meantime the success of “Closer” led to the release of a “Closer – The Remixes” album on Armada Music during the summer of 2011. Around that same time Susana herself entered the studio to start working on new material for a follow-up album. And with success; her sophomore album “Brave” was released in May 2012 including collabs with Max Graham, Shogun, Beat Service, Rex Mundi and Daniel Kandi.
The last two years have seen Susana tour extensively, visiting places all over the world including Ukraine, Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Bahrein, Malta, Taiwan, Argentina, Israel and more. As well as that Susana is one of the first vocalists to ever perform a live acoustic session at an EDM festival when she joined Eller van Buuren and his band at Electronic Family festival in Holland performing tracks such as Shivers, Closer and Brave.
2014 is set to be another huge year for Susana with collaborations already underway with some high profile artists so watch this space! Read more
