Goodnight Suzie is a hot new indie/pop band, featuring a husband and wife duo as lead vocalists. (Suzie & Ben Bradford) The group was born out of the popular Seattle cover band “The Side Project”. The new band features a duo to 8-piece, depending on venue, with electric guitar, bass, percussion, violin, ukulele, and even a rocking organ organist/piano player.
The two have had their music featured on shows such as “Dancing with The Stars” and have had their music broadcast in Starbucks locations across the U.S. Together, they’ve performed thousands of concerts throughout the Pacific NW and beyond, and they are excited to bring you this new sound. They have shared the stage with artists such as Vicci Martinez, Chasing Jane, Dulcinea Renee, Dax Johnson, the Beatnix, Gypsy Soul, and Grammy award winner Eric Tingstad.
Eric Tingstad is an American Grammy Award-winning multi-genre record producer, musician and songwriter / composer. He was born and raised in Seattle, WA where he currently resides. Best known as a fingerstyle guitarist, Tingstad has performed, recorded, and produced Alternative Country, Blues, Americana, Rock, Smooth Jazz and Ambient / New Age music. Tingstad frequently collaborates with woodwinds player Nancy Rumbel as the acclaimed Tingstad and Rumbel duo.
Eric Tingstad cites early rock and roll influences such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and King Crimson. Other influences include The Kingston Trio, Flatt and Scruggs, pianist and composer Martin Denny, sitar virtuoso Ravi Shanker, Mason Williams’ “Classical Gas” and the Hawaiian slack-key guitar. In the mid 1970s, while playing lead guitar and bass with Seattle-based rock band Pegasus, Tingstad began studies under masters of techniques pioneered by Spanish classical guitarist and innovator Andres Segovia. Those techniques, combined with innovations of his own, have shaped Tingstad’s stylings and the instrumental compositions for which he is known.
