Sue Medley
Born: 1962, Courtenay, BC

Sue Medley's musical interests began at age nine when she acquired a drum set. At age 12, she took up guitar and began writing songs. By fifteen she had gone professional as part of an acoustic duo. She was also a member of the travelling musical called 'Elvis Elvis' while in her teens.

In the late '80's she released two independent singles - "Cryin' Over You" (1987) and "Angel Tonight" (1989). By then she had made an appearance at the Big Valley Jamboree in Saskatchewan and received a nomination for the Vista (Rising Star) Award at the 1989 Canadian Country Music Awards.

The notoriety led to her signing with Polygram Canada and a self-titled debut CD in 1990. The album was a co-produced by Medley and John Mellencamp producer Michael Wanchic who utilized John Hiatt's band The Goners.

On the heels of the singles "Dangerous Times" and "Love Thing", she toured North America the rest of the year including dates with Bob Dylan in Toronto and other major markets. She simultaneously became national spokesperson for 'Ride For Sight', a charity to raise funds for the blind. She would write the charity's theme song, "Born To Ride", in 1991 with former Bryan Adams partner Jim Vallance.

Her second album, 'Inside Out', was once again produced by Wanchic and was aided by the musical help of Sonny Landreth and Kenny Aranoff. The album, released in 1992, continued her radio assault with a handful of additional singles and a support tour with the likes of Tom Cochrane and 54.40 put her back in the limelight.

The single "When The Stars Fall" became a hit on album radio and reaching #2 on The Record's chart (being locked out of #1 only by U2). She toured a western opening slot with Kim Mitchell and even hooked up with Bob Dylan on a few dates.

In September 1992, Medley headed to Nashville for a rest and to write some new tunes. She couldn't stay idle for long and played the Ace Of Clubs where she filmed the video "Jane's House".

In October she was invited by John Mellencamp to participate in the Bob Dylan Tribute at Madison Square Gardens in New York. Later that month she received a SOCAN award for her song "Maybe The Next Time" which was one of the most played songs on Canadian radio in 1991.

Her third album, however, would not be forthcoming. Following a two-year dispute with her record label over the songs that would comprise that release, she and Polygram parted ways.

She retreated to her house near Bloomington, Ind., and wrote and recorded much of the material that makes up her comeback release, "Velvet Morning", which finally came out in February 2000 on Egg Records.

Her profile received a boost after four of her songs were featured on the hit TV series "Dawson's Creek".

Greatly influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Sue Medley made a noteworthy contribution to roots-rock and pop-rock with this self-titled release. Tunes like "Heart of Mine," "Oh, Atlanta" and "Maybe the Next Time" made it clear that Medley (an expressive, big-voiced singer with a noteworthy range and a bit of a rough edge to her voice) wasn't out to dazzle audiences with how hip or trendy she could be. Medley's unpretentious nature is one of her assets, and her earthiness serves her well on a CD that, although not fabulous, is honest and generally decent. This album should have attracted more attention, but like so many worthwhile albums released by major record companies, Sue Medley seemed to fall between the cracks. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide
