Sue The Night is the stage moniker of dutch artist Suus (Sue) de Groot. Her alter ego is ‘the Night’ because she usually writes during nocturnal hours.
She occasionally plays solo, but with the band her music’s lifted to greater hights. Usually a six-piece, but with the new EP ’s o f t’ she’s on tour as a three-piece with Matthijs Barnhoorn (violin, Mandolin, vocals) and Jaimie van Hek (bassguitar, synths, percussion, vocals).
The sultry sound of Sue’s melodies is guaranteed to get you hooked to its spiraling layers of melancholy with a shimmering feel-good vibe. Since the release of debutalbum ‘Mosaic’ (2015) she’s been on a ride; airplay for singles ‘The Whale’ and ‘Top of Mind’, 3FM award nominations for Best Band and Best Videoclip (Mind Dear), sold out clubshows and playing big festivals as Best Kept Secret, Indian Summer, Zwarte Cross, Eurosonic Noorderslag.
In August 2016 the band was asked to be a monthly musical guest at the biggest Dutch Daily Talkshow ‘De Wereld Draait Door’. New singles ‘The World Below’ and ‘Mind Dear’ became hits on both Dutch radio 2 & 3 and the WANDERLAND (april 2017) was nominated for Edison (Best Rock) and 3voor12 (Best Album)
‘The World Below’ also became favorite on one of German biggest national radio stations NDR. With the release of the succesfull second album Wanderland, Sue the Night has not only managed to create her signature sound; together with guitarplayer/ producer Thijs van der Klugt, she has also succeeded in crystalizing it on the spot.
