Suzie Vinnick’s been at it for a while. Whether it’s her work with The Marigolds, Rick Fines, Lee Harvey Osmond, or the numerous commercials for Tim Hortons and Shoppers Drug Mart, Vinnick has gotten lots of exposure in the Canadian folk and blues scene and beyond. Only recently, with her albums Happy Here (2008), Me ‘N Mabel (2011), and the new record, Live at Bluesville (2012), is she getting the recognition she deserves. On the new album, her powerful singing is front and centre, backed only by her Larrivee Guitar, Mabel. By leaving it bare and sparse, there’s nothing to hide behind. It’s a showcase of raw, rootsy talent.
