Alexis P. Suter is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn into the heart of North America and beyond.  Alexis P. and her band are on the rise as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town.  Miss Suter and her powerful and unique ensemble artfully blend the lines between blues, soul, roots, and rock music. Her voice ranges from a pained passion to explosive and soul-bearing.

Alexis burst onto the music scene as a regular performer at Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Rambles in Woodstock, NY.  Levon was captured by Alexis’ “wonderful spirit” and had her and the band open for him nearly 100 times.  As special guest openers for The Levon Helm Band, they played to sold-out audiences at the Beacon Theater, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, The Paramount Theater in Asbury Park, NJ, and Central Park’s Summerstage.  Since then, Alexis has opened for BB King, Etta James, Bo Diddley, Trombone Shorty, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Buddy Guy, and many, many others.

At the highly prestigious Blues Music Awards, Alexis was nominated for Best Contemporary Female Artist in 2017, The Koko Taylor Vocalist in 2015, and for Best Soul/Blues Female Vocalist in 2013.

Alexis has 8 full length releases to date.  They are currently touring in support of “Live at Briggs Farm” (2017) and “All For Loving You” (2017).  “Live at Briggs Farm” was nominated for Best Live Blues Recording at the 2017 Blues Blast Music Awards.

“Alexis P. Suter has a big voice and knows how to use it.  Whether singing about spiritual ecstasy or earthly troubles, her booming contralto, seasoned with raw emotion, makes every song she performs her own.” -Kay Cordtz, BLUES REVUE MAGAZINE

“America’s number one contender for the new queen of the Blues Alexis P. Suter!” -Dan Aykroyd
