When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P. Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings NYC. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked: “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”

The Alexis P. Suter Band have earned similar accolades from other well-known musicians and performers, including Dan Aykroyd and the great Levon Helm of The Band.

A true vocal phenomenon, bass/baritone powerhouse Suter and her band began wowing audiences in the northeast as regular performers at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY. "She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you; you can feel that,” Helm has said.

The Alexis P. Suter Band opened the show at The Midnight Ramble in Woodstock, NY over 90 times. As special guest openers for The Levon Helm Band, they played to sold-out audiences at the Beacon Theater, Bethel Woods Center For The Arts, The Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ and Central Park’s Summerstage.

Since then, APSB have been in high demand at North American Roots and Blues festivals, venues and events including, The 50th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival, Bluestock, Musikfest, Beale Street Music Festival, Mont Tremblant Music Festival, Cincinnati Blues Festival, FloydFest, Pennsylvania Blues Fest, Daytona Blues Fest, Kitchener Blues Festival, Briggs Farm Blues Festival, Pocono Blues Festival, Vermont Blues Festival, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, Columbia Blues Festival, Tampa Bay Blues Fest and many, many more.

Alexis is nominated for The Koko Taylor Award at the upcoming 36th Annual Blues Music Awards, and was nominated for Best Soul Blues Female Artist at the 33rd Annual BMA's!

The Alexis P. Suter Band have contributed a song to the Songs After Sandy (songsaftersandy.com) project and Restore Red Hook. This is a 3 CD compilation series of some of the biggest artists in music today. APSB are proud and honored to be on the Second Volume along with Sir Paul McCartney and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) with their song “In The City”.

“All Over Again” from their release“Two Sides” was named NPR’s “Song Of The Day”. A long awaited compilation for Alexis and the band is due this fall on Hipbone Records.

APSB have 6 releases; “Two Sides” (Hipbone), “Live at the Turning Point” (Festivalink), “Just Another Fool” (Hipbone), "Live at the Midnight Ramble" (Levon Helm Studios), “Shuga Fix” (Hipbone) and their most their most recent release, “Love The Way You Roll”, on American Showplace Music, coproduced by Ben Elliott and APSB. “Love The Way You Roll” debuted on The Living Blues Charts at #22 and maintained the #1 spot on the Roots Music Reports Blues/Rock charts for 24 weeks and has received much praise from blues publications, Blues Music Magazine, Blues Blast Magazine, Blues Matters, Elmore, and Big City Blues among others.

Along with Suter’s extraordinary bass/baritone voice and amazing and powerful stage presence, her real secret weapon is The Alexis P. Suter Band! At every show audiences show their whistling, clapping and cheering appreciation for the APSB with drummer Ray Grappone’s dynamic beats, guitarist Jimmy Bennett’s searing leads, Peter Bennett on down home solid bass and the very talented backing vocalist Vicki Bell. The firepower of this exciting band has captured the attention of some of the best players around, and they are considered by their peers as one of the best LIVE Bands on the scene today!

"It's a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady" -B.B. King

"She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you; you can feel that."  -Levon Helm “International Recording Artist Alexis P. Suter and her talented band are a must for any venue large or small that take their music seriously. She is as great off the stage as she is on. She is not to be missed!” -Michael Cloeren - Festival/Producer/Director & Founder of Pocono Blues Festival (1992-2010)

“Without a doubt the biggest voice and heart in the blues world today.” -Richard Briggs, Pres/Founder -- Briggs Farm Blues Festival 

"Alexis P. Suter has a big voice and knows how to use it. Whether singing about spiritual ecstasy or earthly troubles, her booming contralto, seasoned with raw emotion make every song she performs her own. "  -Kay Cordtz, Blues Revue Magazine 

"Suter is as fascinating to watch as to hear.  A stunning, ample woman with the face of a cherubic African queen, her molasses contralto can whisper and purr, then swell into a pulsating wave of sound that radiates from the depths of her being. "  -Elmore Magazine 

"She's got a voice that could bring down the tower of Babel. She may be the best blues singer on the east coast. She's played the Midnight Rambles with Levon Helm for over two years now, but she should be playing in palaces and kingdoms to kings and queens. "  -Joe Vignola, Long Island Blues Newsletter 

"What a voice, and she uses it to highly emotive effect! Fierce and ferocious! "  -Lee Hildebrand, Living Blues Magazine
