The Metropolitan Room is proud to welcome Susan Winter back for her second show, “Love rolls on...” Her debut performance, “Million Dollar Matinee,” received a 2008 MAC award nomination for Best Female Debut. After hearing several “well respected” individuals in the cabaret community say, “Instead of doing a theme, find a set of songs you want to sing,” Winter, together with award winning arranger, Rick Jensen, have put together an evening of well-known and lesser-known old and new jazz-tinged songs that tell her story.
Winter worked for years with her own jazz trio, she fronted many top 40 cover bands and sang every 30’s and 40’s song ever written with quality Big Bands but, she took a hiatus raise her two sons and work with students with special needs for the NYC Department of Education. Never knowing what twists and turns a life will take; Susan has been studying voice with Patrick DeGennero and has taken Cabaret classes with Lina Koutrakos, Lennie Watts, Andrea Marcovicci, Karen Mason and Barry Kleinbort. She has also studied with legend Marilyn Maye and jazz great, Madeline Eastman.
Susan Winter has sung at the Metropolitan Room, Don’t Tell Mama’s, Helens Hideaway, the Iridium, Birdland’s Cast Party, and the Landmark Theater. She recently was a returning guest on the acclaimed Joey Reynolds radio show and will be performing at the Duplex later in June for MAC’s New Face Showcase.
“Her voice is like a gift from the gods...like caramel over ice cream!”
“...a long-time band singer, with a lucious smooth delivery...a way with a lyric. When she sang...it stayed with me for a long time.”
Carla Gordon, Cabaret Scenes/Cabaret Hotline
“She’s got a rich, appealing voice and I want more people to have the happy habit of hearing it regularly...”
Rob Lester, Cabaret Exchange
“...a jazz vocalist who offers a Winter-wonderland of tunes...”
Time-Out New York
“...charming, straightforward and funny...she could swing like nobody’s business and she has this delicious, strong and soulful voice of truth...”
