Such – Sugar Maple

SUCH is a Boston born, New York raised, Chicago groomed Soul singer. Just like her upbringing, her road to music has been a scenic journey. It started at the age of 15 when she was invited to perform in the Grammy High School Jazz Ensemble for three consecutive years (2000-2002) and recorded a full length album with them each year. She had the privilege to tour LA’s best jazz clubs and venues – The Brown Derby, Spaghettini’s, The Knitting Factory, etc. She attended the Grammy Nominee Dinner and the Grammy Awards where she met and performed with Patrice Rushen, Peter Cincotti, Kurt Elling, Dave Koz, Erykah Badu, Yolanda Adams, Vanessa Carlton and Letoya and Latavia (of the former “Destiny’s Child”). She spent the next few years leading choirs, praise teams and congregations in worship in Boston, Chicago, and Denver. That led her to work with international recording artist K’naan on the choral orchestration and arrangement of his hit single Wavin’ Flag. After finishing top 63rd out of 112,000 contestants on American Idol’s 2012 season, she released her first album, Stretch Marks, a record drenched in Soul, R&B, Jazz and Gospel influences that marks the most poignant time of growth in her life. SuCh had her first nationwide tour during the winter of 2012, which took her to fabled venues in Chicago, New York City, Vegas, LA, Miami, Raleigh and Boston. She recently finished her critically acclaimed acting debut as Celie in the regional premiere of the Color Purple, which earned her a Henry Award for Best Actress. Her latest single “Sugar Maple” spent 2 weeks in August 2013 at #1 on the UK Soul Charts. As a performer, SuCh has enough energy to power a small city; her passion for music emanating tangibly in venues large and small. As a songwriter, she writes simple songs about complex things – loss, family, love, life, friendship and hardship. She connects emotionally as both with her audiences through melodies that soar, woven in her clear, soulful voice, spiriting them away to distant lands, forgotten memories, and dreams of a better world.

Such – Sugar Maple Lyrics:
It’s been a long day
Just wanna come home and lay on you babay
But you say “honey, we’re not gonna stay,
I’m taking you out to your favorite cafe”

We feed each other sorbet
Then head to your secret hideaway
For our very own soirée
Hey, It’s a party

I’m grateful
This thing we have is special
Like spring showers in April
You sprinkle
Your love on me so playful
Tasteful
Like sap from a sugar maple

This is the perfect holiday
We sit and chill on the dock of the bay
Sippin on some Chardonnay
We sway to Marvin Gaye
I’m pulling out my lingerie
Gonna go all the way

I’m grateful
This thing we have is special
Like spring showers in April
You sprinkle
Your love on me so playful
Tasteful
Like sap from a sugar maple

Let you rub my feet
Kiss me from cheek to cheek
Make my knees go weak
Then I’ll give you a quick sneak peek

(Im gonna) Let you rub my feet
(You’re gonna) Kiss me from cheek to cheek
Make my knees go weak
Then I’ll give you a quick sneak peek

I’m grateful
This thing we have is special
Like spring showers in April
You sprinkle
Your love on me so playful
Tasteful
Like sap from a sugar maple.
