Alexis P. Suter is a rising star on the roots, blues and soul scene. Her powerful bass/baritone voice, seasoned with raw emotion and a wide streak of attitude, has won the praise of greats from B.B. King to Levon Helm. "She is one of those wonderful spirits," said Helm. "She's got her arms around you. You can feel that."
A true vocal phenomenon, Suter has been astounding audiences up and down the east coast for the past few years, backed by her tight, soul-rocking ensemble. The band is anchored by Ray Grappone's solid, funky beats and Peter Bennett on bass. Guitarist Jimmy Bennett plays stinging guitar, Benny Harrison adds his passionate keyboard wizardry and soulful singers
Vicki Bell, Glenn Turner and Linda Pino ramp up the intensity that has captured the attention of some of the best players around.
The Alexis P. Suter Band have had the honor of opening the show at the acclaimed Levon Helm Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY over 80 times. The APS band have also performed at festivals including the Pocono Blues Fest, The Mississippi Valley Blues Fest, The WC Handy Blues BBQ, Virginia Blues and Jazz Fest and the New York State Blues Fest among many others. Along with The Levon Helm Band, they played sold-out shows at the Beacon Theater in New York City, Bethel Woods Center For The Arts, The Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ and Central Park's Summerstage.
Recently, Alexis and the band were the guest musical performers on the IMUS IN THE MORNING show, aired nationally on WABC Radio and RFD TV. Their song "Ride Ride" is currently being featured on a national commercial for howstuffworks.com. In February, they headlined at BB King's in New York to a sold out crowd. The APSB had the honor and pleasure of touring the Piedmont region of Italy as part of "Blues Al Femminile".
On their latest CD, Just Another Fool on Hipbone Records, Suter and her top-notch band take you on a musical journey of emotional, gut-busting blues and soul. The CD is doing well on Triple A Radio stations nationwide.
