Introducing TwoVersus: new music for voice and cello.
Charismatic Irish soprano, jazz vocalist and songwriter Suzanne Savage (described as "Ireland's hidden music hero" (BBC N.I.)) joins forces with New Zealand’s young virtuoso cellist Hugo Smit to create songscapes: vocal music that challenges the listener with its emotional intensity, daring you to avert your gaze.
What began as a musical experiment between two musicians of very differing music and cultural backgrounds became a recognition that they’d struck upon something strange, beautiful and rare. TwoVersus have performed in Venice, Istanbul and Dublin, from punk poetry gigs to classical recital halls. Their first album (‘Versus’) was released by the Stradivarius label in 2005, their second self-released album (‘Cast’) followed in 2013.
