Join us for a fun evening of your favorite coffee and music with a great couple, Scot Sax & Suzie Brown! All donations and proceeds from the evening will benefit The Joe Beretta Foundation, specifically the building of "Papa Joe's House." A donation of $10 is suggested per ticket but please feel free to give what you can to help heart failure patients as they await a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD).
Suzie, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, is also an Advanced Heart Failure/Heart Transplant cardiologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. After years of working hard for success in the medical field, Brown discovered a relentless pull towards music that has now yielded five albums, a succession of songwriting awards, featured placement of her music at retailers like Starbucks and the Gap, and invitations to TEDMED and other conferences around the country to speak about finding a vulnerability through music that makes her a better doctor.
Montreal-born and Boston-raised, Brown wrote her first song while in a research fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania and launched her musical career in Philadelphia, releasing three solo albums. In 2014 she moved to Nashville, where along with her work at Vanderbilt, she found a community of co-writers and collaborators that pushed her writing even further. She has since released "Our Album Doesn’t Like You Either" with her husband musician Scot Sax and had two daughters, making her pursuit of balance and reflection all that much more important.
"Sometimes Your Dreams Find You" was born in that space of uncertain transition followed by confident calm--she no longer feels the need to choose one part of herself over another. “For the first time in my life, I don't feel like I'm working towards something else,” she says. “When someone asks me what I want to do in five years, I kind of just want to keep doing this.”
"Bluesy, folky, achy, sweet-voiced Suzie Brown. A practicing cardiologist pursuing a career in singing (her own songs) and playing the guitar, she's part Emmylou Harris, part Allison Krauss, and totally worth seeing." -Philadelphia Magazine
