Alexis P. Suter Band
Alexis P. Suter Band
International Recording Artist Alexis P Suter is a powerful and unique vocalist who transcends styles and genres. When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P. Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings NYC. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked: “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”

The Alexis P. Suter Band have earned similar accolades from other well-known musicians and performers, including Dan Aykroyd and Levon Helm of The Band.

A true vocal phenomenon, bass/baritone powerhouse Suter and her band began wowing audiences in the northeast as regular performers at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY. "She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you; you can feel that,” Helm has said.
