About Me

Biography

Susie Päivärinta or Susanne Elisabeth, her formal name, was born in Sweden the 10th of May 1964 in Sundbyberg but grew up in Sollentuna with her younger sister Lili and her older brother Totte.

Living in Stockholm with her boyfriend and their 3 children, they now have a new addition to the family; Bella, a Jack Russell terrier. Susie has a strong interest for animals and environment and also is actively involved in questions pertaining to these areas.

Her debut as a recording artist came in 1985 with the LP ”Lili & Sussie”. On that LP was their first hit ”Sommar i natt” which Lili and Susie wrote together with Niklas Strömstedt. To date they can add 15 hits and have topped radio and sales charts in all the Nordic countries and have written themselves into Swedish pop music history. Ever since her debut, Susie has been involved in the creative processes of both music and production. She has co-written several of Lili & Susie's hits and has had successes in both the national and international markets as a songwriter and as a recording artist.

As a person, Susie is very open for new influences and collaborations. One of the most unusual projects for her is Diztord where she sings a duet with growler Olle Ekman. The result of ”Wish You Where Here” you can see in the ”media” section.

”Suddenly a short, catchy idea pops up in my head. That's when I take out my guitar and follow through with it.” That's how Susie herself describes it when I asked where all the new song ideas come from. She defines herself just as much a songwriter as she is an artist who, besides using a guitar, can play a bit of piano in her creative endeavors.

The material for her own solo project can be described as delicate and self-exposing and where the focus is on the lyric and performance. It's there her voice and her capacity as a singer play a major role.

Susie's first solo CD”In the Sun” was released at the beginning of the millennium and had two radio hits with a lot of airplay. ”What goes around” and ”New day” which even became a hit in Japan.

Susie collaborates with many successful songwriters and producers that cover a wide musical spectrum. ”It's both exciting and educational to work with people who have different musical backgrounds and references. It helps me to developed both musically and personally” as Susie expresses it herself.

Susie is constantly working on new material and is very productive. We are extremely glad to be able to present Susie to you!
