You have ten words to describe your act, no more no less…
As an act how how does it feel to be back post-COVID?
Lock down was an interesting time for me as a musician. It made me re-evaluate what it was I was trying to achieve. I was actually very busy doing a lot of remote recording for Artists as far away as Australia, Germany and a few closer to home.
I kept busy doing virtual gigs and I finally got round to start recording my new album produced by Martin Stephenson. However, playing live in front of people again was like coming home to me. It’s the connection I feel with an audience, it brings me to life.
Given the myths and legends theme of Belladrum 2022, can you tell us a myth or legend of Susanna Wolfe?
Apparently, some people find me scary, and I have no idea why?
As for myths, well, you know what they say, no smoke without fire!
Which legend (non-musical!) would you have appear on stage with you and what song would you play with them?
It would have to be Jason Momoa (secret crush) and we would sing “Born to be
There have been a few musical legends play Belladrum over the years which performance would you most like the opportunity to see again?
OOOH SO MANY! Probably The Pretenders although I do love Reef
How are you preparing for your Belladrum performance, what are your plans after you have played?
This year I’ll be playing songs from My new Album (plug, plug) Mantras for Modern Times, release date is 2 nd September so the playlist will be easy. Rehearsals have started already as I haven’t decided which songs yet.
After my set, I’ll be catching up with all the folk I haven’t seen for ages and checking out a few acts such as The Vandal and Mason Hill.
If your set only consisted of three songs and one extra cover, which ones would they be and why?
Well, the first three songs would have to be mine so “Wild Dogs” is in there. As for the cover, it would either be “Zombie” or The Stones “Wild Horses”, done Wolfie Style of course!
And a wee bit of festival madness…
Who’d win a fight between Nessie and Godzilla?
Nessie of course! She’d whip that lizards ass!
You’re out for a few drinks, what other artist that you know, would turn it in to a legendary night?
Keith Richards, the craic would be excellent!
Is Nessie real?
She is in my mind
What would you rather fight, a unicorn the size of Nessie or 20 unicorn sized Nessies?
A unicorn the size of Nessie! Easier to dodge and I would tame it by singing sweet
What is your favourite urban legend?
Any Urban Legends I know would have to come with a parental guidance label
If you had to form a 4 piece band from legendary creatures what instrument would each play and why? Also what would you call the Mythical band?
Dragon on lead guitar for some hot riffs
Werewolf (me) on vocals cos I can Howl baby!
Troll on drums cos they play rock music (Terry Pratchett ref)
Thor on bass cos he would bring the thunder
Would be called M.C.I ( Mythical Creatures Incorporated).
