Holiday songs are often a tough sell even for the most talented and well-known of artists in the game today, but in the case of Suzanne’s Band’s take on “One More Night of Christmas,” it doesn’t take much more than a cursory examination of its melodic patchwork to fall in love with the group’s trademark tonality. “One More Night of Christmas” is an accessible pop song with a wintry groove, fragile harmonies and a singer in Suzanne herself who has demonstrated a lot of wit and wisdom from behind the microphone recently but takes her sound to a higher level in this latest release. Simply put, fans both old and new alike would be wise to take note of this single as a sign of the magic still to come from the Suzanne’s Band brand.

“One More Night of Christmas,” like most songs by this group, features a really folky vocal style, but the structure itself is contemporary pop in almost every way. The beats are supple and smoothly adjoined with the melodic elements in the foreground, but the two never get clustered in the mix – the track is too well-produced for that to happen. The crisp quality of the instruments aside, Suzanne’s crooning is what keeps us glued to our speakers more than anything else does in this single, and though it’s perhaps not her most balanced composition to date, it’s undisputedly one of the most exquisite vocal showcases that she’s released thus far in her career with this band.

Instrumentally speaking, “One More Night of Christmas” is uncomplicated and simplistic, but to be perfectly frank, it doesn’t need to be super elaborate to make a big impression. With all of the gusto that the players are putting into the music, we’re able to take as much from the texture of their harmonies as we are the content of Suzanne’s words, which is a combination that is far from easy to find when browsing the top tier of the Billboard charts nowadays. Suzanne’s Band bring a lot of confidence into the studio with them in this track, and for all that it lacks in over the top theatrics and plasticized polish, it more than compensates for in originality, spirited melodic moxie and a tasteful adherence to the parameters of old school pop music.

I only just recently started listening to Suzanne’s Band, but if this is a taste of what the group can do when they’re firing on all cylinders and chasing after a sound as sweet as the season is, I’ll definitely be checking out their work again in the future. There are a lot of ways to take on a Christmas song, but with “One More Night of Christmas,” Mia Suzanne Walker and company don’t overthink anything – they let the melodies lead the way, and in doing so turn in one of the more on-point holiday singles of the year. There’s still plenty of time before Christmas day, but as of now I think that it would be safe to say this is the premier song to beat among seasonal indie releases.

The Making of the Down In Mexico Video

My video creator Daniel Waltzer is pretty amazing. What’s even more mind-blowing is we start off working separately on ideas for my songs only to come back together to discuss them and discover we were thinking about the same theme. My sense of humor runs toward the quirky side, and I like seeing that played out through the videos as well. My favorite part of the video for Down In Mexico was the scene where the cell phone gets tossed in the sand with a “thunk”. How many times have you been trying to talk to someone and just wished you could grab their phone and throw it to get their attention?

I was really nervous about putting myself out there so much in the Down In Mexico video, but the fans and friends wanted and expected me to be in it. Next step was finding a location. Many tropical looking places locally were, still damaged from the most recent hurricane and as a new struggling artist I didn’t have the cash flow to go film in Mexico. Fortunately, Agave Rio was kind enough to allow us to film there, and their fabulous patio area was the perfect place to get that Mexican ambiance. Using stock footage enabled the viewer to feel more like it was done in Mexico as well. It was a beautiful Spring day when we filmed and couldn’t have asked for better weather. Classical acoustic guitar is what suits me best and fit in perfectly with both the song and the video. Keyboard castanet sounds were used in the recorded song to blend better. For the video, I played my Mateo castanets and put my years of flamenco/Spanish dancing lessons to good use. The scene where I’m songwriting is the real deal. If you look closely, you’ll see, it’s the lyrics from One From Two, another Suzanne’s Band original song. The production of Down In Mexico was a blast to record and even more fun to conceptualize and produce a video for. Every time I watch it, it makes me feel like I need to go to Mexico or at the very least, take a vacation.

A little slow ominous picking of an acoustic guitar here, a little lingering bassline over there. A bit of quaint percussion and some divine vocals that evoke biblical imagery of a simpler kind of man, a people who are only held to the simple standard of love and respect. Fields of tall grass on a hot summer day and sandy beaches that make merry for young lovers lost in each other’s gaze. The loss of that love, the stark reality that is left behind when we pick up the pieces in our consequential fate. These are all segments in the many splendored book of life, but they are also the elements that Suzanne’s Band wants to aggressively explore in the simplest of terms on their gorgeous debut recording, Breathe, a six song extended play from the mind of Texas’ own singer/songwriter Mia Suzanne Walker.

Using carefully arranged acoustic guitars and brooding harmonies, the Texas branded Suzanne’s Band creates a charming set of songs on the new extended play, Breathe, which is available now on Amazon.com. Suzanne’s Band is the official vehicle for Houstonian singer/songwriter Mia Suzanne Walker, and Walker is nothing short of a blinding force of positive energy in her debut offering. Using a folky template, she touches on themes ranging from vulnerability in the title track, to inspirational and cathartic on the rich “Down in Mexico,” a song that will definitely leave listeners itching to grab a set of car keys and cruise south of the border for a while. While there isn’t a lot of whimsy here, Walker never leaves us feeling depressed on Breathe, but instead moved by the depth of her emotional reach and relatability. Read More

Since the 1960’s, America has had a love affair with music that speaks to our roots and reminds us of what it’s like to be a part of something that is so much bigger than we are. Something that speaks to the very essence of our souls and drives us to so and accomplish anything that we set forth to do. I don’t know if Mia Suzanne Walker was setting out to create something as spellbinding as her debut extended play Breathe, but she not only exceeds expectations listeners have in a rookie offering, but creates an intrinsic new category of indie folk music all its own. Much like the complicated lovers that dwell in Walker’s lyrics, I found myself falling into a complex love with Suzanne’s Band’s style introduced to me on this record. Read More

There’s some big waves coming out of the southeast Texas music scene lately, and perhaps the biggest wave that the singer/songwriters in Austin need to be watching out for is the one being made by the rollicking indie pop/rock unit Suzanne’s Band and its eponymous singer’s soulful approach to songcraft. Music has the unique capability of bringing the masses together in a way that is completely different than any other medium in the art world. John Lennon once said that this special quality is what makes music as sacred as religion, and that heavenly nature provides the backbone to Suzanne’s Band’s debut release, Breathe. Breathe takes us to a peaceful plain of contemplative catharsis akin to Joni Mitchell’s early work, and gives us a hearty sample of just what singer Mia Suzanne Walker is capable. Read More

They said there’s more fish in the sea hold on and wait patiently
You were the one they warned me about the one who stole my Heart and turned my life around

You’re the one I count on to see this journey through
Oh baby there’s no other quite like you
Turning into one from two
