Susie -vocalist in Smooth Duo Susie and Andy play background music, cool, classy, professional, perform Standards with a hint of jazz.

Susie made her solo singing debut aged 7. She learned her craft in the Theatre. Credits include Mama Morton in Chicago, Rizzo in Grease and Anita in West Side Story. After which she became lead singer in the award winning soft rock Band 'The Wishing Chair.' This success was followed by a period touring the UK as part of an 80's Tribute act and now she is following her true roots of jazz/blues/swing music as vocalist in Smooth Duo. She also appears regularly as a Supporting Artist in TV's Emmerdale. Andy - Multi instrumentalist - enjoyed success in the Indie band 'The Machines.' He then performing with his own jazz trio and backed various Artistes. He trained as an actor (LAMDA) & financed his studies by working as a session musician. He appeared in numerous TV shows, including Dr. Who, Sherlock Holmes and Playing the Field but his love of music led him back to full time playing. He was part of a successful Soul Band, then later an 80's Tribute act both touring the UK extensively. He has now returned to his jazz/blues/swing roots in Smooth Duo. He also appears regularly as a Supporting Artist in TV's Emmerdale. Although not a Tribute Act or stage show we are often compared to the acts from the Ronnie Scott's era - Cleo & Johnny, Ella etc. And we play timeless classic songs that have melody and meaning. We have opened for many ‘name’ acts, including The Osmond Brothers, Ken Dodd, Russell Watson, Billy Ocean, Lulu, the National Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Lance Ellington and Paul Potts. We played live at the Granada TV studios for the cast and crew of Coronation Street after the iconic live 50th Anniversary episode and also for the cast and crew of Emmerdale.

Smooth duo are a fantastic band with a great sound, suitable for many different types of occasion. They entertained 75 people at my 60th birthday lunch and created a great atmosphere; everyone loved them. Susie's voice is wonderful and Andy is adept and skilled at switching from instrument to instrument. I have heard them many times and they are always professional, pleasant and adaptable. They are reliable and deliver what they say they will, as well as unassuming and not demanding. Grab them whilst you can! Sandra Lawman, Berkhamsted.

We have heard Smooth Duo many times at various venues. They are excellent performers playing a relaxing and varied mix of music. They play to the crowd and adjusting their set as needed. Susie's voice is like immersing yourself in a rich cup of drinking chocolate, smooth and deep. Andy is a skilled musician who provides a great accompaniment, he seems to do the work of a small band! They are perfect easy listening and have great personalities that really create a friendly atmosphere. We thoroughly recommend them to hotels and restaurants as well as private parties and weddings.
