Sue McLaren the UK based vocalist and songwriter, started out with her acoustic guitar, performing in an indie-folk band. She then formed an electro outfit which led to a signing with Universal publishing.
This recognition gave Sue the opportunity to write with renowned songwriter Rob Davies (co-writer of Olive, ‘You’re Not Alone and Kylie Minogue’s track ‘Can’t Get You Outta My Head’). Sue also went on to play at BBC Radio 1’s ‘Sound in the City’ and also featured on the BBC Radio 1 ‘Sound in the City’ album.
Whilst performing and writing, Sue also completed a two year course in music production, set up her own studio and continued collaborating across genres.
In a chance encounter, a session led to Sue recording a top-line for a progressive house track and there started her journey into electronic dance music. The first track she released was ‘Behind The Eyes’ in 2009 by Nacho Chapado & Smaz which was followed quickly by an uplifting trance number with Philippe el Sisi entitled ‘The Last Hope’.
Since then Sue has begun to build an enviable reputation, continuing to write and release tracks with a host of international producers. Collaborations with Paul van Dyk, Aly & Fila, Andy Moor, Alex , Dj San, Ben Nicky, Reorder, Solis & Truby, Thomas Mengel, Las Salinas, Dennis Shepherd and Ronski Speed have earned her thousands of followers and a rank of 62 in the Beatport Top 100 Trance Artists of 2014.
