Meet Susan Marsh-Hatty

This woman is jazzy


“I perform with the Warren Commission, a jazz duo composed of [me] and Daniel Warren. We’ve had the opportunity to play all over the world for 26 years. We’ve recorded several albums of jazz-blues and original pieces created by Daniel Warren. Nemesis is another band in which I sing lead and background. Nemesis was my first professional band when I was in college. I reunited with them five years ago. The chemistry is even hotter, now that the horn section has been added. My third, but not least, group is Suzi and Steve. Steve Schuetz is the keyboardist-owner of Orange Lake Drive, a fusion-jazz group. He and I play great jazz standards and jazzy twists on pop tunes at clubs, weddings, and private affairs. All three groups are diverse and, most importantly, professional. Every member has myriad talents and decades of experience. Plus, they’re really cool people to hang with. I’m so grateful to be able to play with such remarkable players and wonderful people.”
