Suzi Shelton is riding the crest of the “kindie rock” phenomenon with catchy tunes and hip pop-rock style. This rising star in the kids’ music scene has released two critically acclaimed CDs, “No Ordinary Day” and “Simply Suzi,” as well as a popular concert DVD, “Suzi Shelton: Live at Southpaw.”  Suzi has also won numerous awards and accolades for her work, including a Parents’ Choice Award.

For the last 10 years singer-songwriter Suzi Shelton has been rocking parents and kids alike! Whether it’s thousands at The White House Easter Egg Roll or the Lincoln Center Tree Lighting, to swarms of fans at the Tribeca Film Festival or local Brooklyn hot spot – Southpaw Bar.  With a background in Early Childhood Education and Dance, this Brooklyn-based mother of two teaches music to her adoring fans in local preschool and elementary schools and has been a standout among the current crop of kid-friendly musical performers since her days performing with the Imagination Workshop Band. Kids and parents alike respond to Suzi’s warmth, her angelic voice and no-sugar-added lyrics.  Her music is all about combining music with movement to encourage kids to participate by using their imagination. Suzi’s two solo CD’s Simply Suzi and No Ordinary Day as well as her live DVD, have won her the prestigious NAPPA Gold Award, Kids First, Children’s Music Web, and Parent’s Choice Awards.
