Emerging singer-songwriter/guitarist Suzanna Choffel, who you might remember from the third season of NBC’s The Voice, has posted a new music video for the R&B-infused track “Raincloud,” from her 2013 album Archer (Red Parlor Records).
The music video that accompanies “Raincloud” was filmed beneath the Brooklyn Bridge on two nights in spring and summer rain, the video achieves a film noir effect featuring Choffel as the femme fatale stepping out with her underworld counterpart and dancing ‘raincloud,’ performed by one of Broadway’s leading choreographers and dancers, Noah Racey (Follies, Thoroughly Modern Millie).
Choffel’s Archer garnered critical acclaim for its innovative blend of genres and Choffel’s commanding voice. Choffel, whose signature voice floats on a spectrum between Feist and Erykah Badu, is sole writer on all but two songs, mingling R&B, reggae, pop and jazz into a thrilling and distinct sound that reflects her broad influences spanning Peter Tosh to Patty Griffin. She has been focusing on writing songs for her next album, laying down demo recordings in the New York City studios of her publisher, BMG Gold Songs. Additional details on the new album will be announced soon.
