College years are often the most formative for young musicians who are eager to break out of the rigidness of academia and into the boundless world of “adult” songwriting. And typically it’s not until after graduation that these creatives can fully re-commit to their craft and progress their inventiveness. People like singer Susannah Joffe, who just graduated from UT Austin. In addition to the new degree under her belt, Joffe’s also got nearly a million streams for this February’s The Punch EP, not to mention sold out headliner shows and opening appearances for Mattiel, Geese, and Japanese Breakfast.
Joffe’s radiant rock and picturesque pop already offer a colorful cross-indie concoction, so fingers crossed that this is still just the tip of the iceberg in terms of quality and output. Susannah Joffe opens for Cali four-piece Sun Room on Thursday, September 8th, 8PM at Empire Control Room and releases a self-directed music video for her latest single soon. Until then, enjoy the intimate imagery and impressive implementation of dynamics (far surpassing anything you’d hear from a “bedroom producer”) on “In Your Room”.
