Suzanne Santo Releases Poignant New Song "Best Out Of Me"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Suzanne Santo will release her solo debut album Ruby Red on August 11th. Best known as one-half of Americana duo HONEYHONEY, Santo steps out on her own for the first time and, more than 10 years into an acclaimed career, turns a new corner. Today, she released her new song "Best Out Of Me," premiered this morning on Glide Magazine who stated "Slow burning and soulful with a catchy-as-hell chorus, Santo lets her gorgeous vocals ooze with emotion and power. You can feel the longing in her voice as she preaches about being better in love, and the subtle orchestration gives the song a sweeping, dramatic and redemptive sound."

Tonight, tune in to TBS at 10pm EST (9pm CST) where Suzanne will appear in the series premiere of the new comedy TV series The Guest Book alongside HONEYHONEY bandmate Ben Jaffe. Each episode will feature the duo in various acting and musical roles. HONEYHONEY also wrote the show's theme song as well as several songs for the soundtrack appearing throughout the season. New York Times stated "Helping considerably: the music of the alt-country blues duo HONEYHONEY, which is smartly deployed throughout the series."

Produced by multi-platinum Grammy nominee Butch Walker, Ruby Red is caught halfway between the dark swoon of pop-noir, the raw rasp of soul music, and the honest punch of Americana. It's an album about love, life, and lust in the modern world. A moody, fierce, melody-driven 11-song offering, Ruby Red ranges from Southern-gothic anthems to slow-burning soul ballads to explosive rockers, all anchored around Santo's voice: an electrifying, elastic instrument that's capable of both vulnerability and ferocity.

Rolling Stone raved "The new record marks an expansion of her Americana roots, with Southern-gothic soul and dusky, driving pop-fueled songs" while KCRW claimed
"[Ruby Red] showcases her prowess as a singer/songwriter." With the premiere of the second single, American Songwriter stated "While 'Blood On Your Knees' marks a stylistic detour from her folkier past, she sounds right at home amidst its pop and soul leanings." Hear Santo and Walker duet on "Better Than That" which LA Weekly called "a lovelorn lament with aching vocal harmonies."

Before they collaborated on Ruby Red, Santo made multiple appearances on Butch Walker's latest album Stay Gold. She joined him on the road, too, singing harmonies and playing violin, guitar, and banjo during a nationwide tour in 2016. During breaks in her touring schedule, she began diving into a different type of songwriting, looking to diverse albums by Erykah Badu, David Bowie, Townes Van Zandt, and the Alabama Shakes for inspiration. For years, she'd always been somebody else's bandmate. This was a time to explore her own identity. To write her own music. To ignore genres and defy expectations. To determine what, exactly, she wanted to say, and find out the best way to deliver it.
"This record is so fucking sexy, I can't deal," stated Butch Walker. "Proud to have been in the room when these songs were going down. Put it on and turn out the lights."

Following album release shows in August in LA and NYC, Suzanne will join former Old Crow Medicine Show co-founder Willie Watson on tour this Fall, kicking off in Louisville and hitting Chicago, Washington DC, and Philadelphia among many others.
