Suzie was the lead singer of Australian folk band BANSHEE, renowned for lilting harmonies and quirky arrangements of Irish, English and American folk songs and the modern alt country lineup THE HUMMINGBIRDS. At the invitation of Trevor Lucas (Fairport
Convention), she joined the Goanna band at the height of their fame. Although only briefly with the band, Suzie performed at the Stop the Drop Concert with INXS, Midnight Oil and Redgum. She also sang on the Let the Franklin flow single.

LIVE REVIEW - Lomond Hotel 6th Feb 2011

"Suzie Dickinson's natural and powerful stage presence is the fruit of deep experience as a performer. She delivers her original songs in a convincing way that engages her audience with a troubadour muse that reminds me of MICHELLE SHOCKED, THE WAIFS, MISSY HIGGINS OR RAY DAVIES. Suzie is a gifted songwriter with a story telling style that shines fresh light into familiar spaces in our lives. The songs are wry and bitter, yet warm and re-assuring at the same time. The unusual combination of Suzie’s clarion voice and assured guitar playing with Dave Flett’s inventive bass guitar,
sets the sounds of Suzie’s performance apart from the rest of the pack."
