Producer, Songwriter, Vocalist and Educator, Suzi Analogue is fully engulfed in an industry she loves. She has compared the process of creating to the inherent female process of creating life. Suzi took time from her busy schedule to answer my questions and shed light on what her drive looks like, where it stems from, and how she plans to make room for more women with big dreams like hers. She sheds light on the fact that she is in no way the only woman doing what she’s doing or one of “few”, instead there are many that need a platform and recognition and she is doing what she can to bring them to the forefront.
What does success look like to you?
Freedom from oppressive systems.
Any opinions or advice, on balancing relationships or having a family VS. the perception of the public of women choosing success or love?
I think now is the time for women to organically connect the dots of their lives between goals, passions and whatever they desire. The time for holding back on yourself is outdated.
How do you remain committed to yourself and your goals? What does it look like?
By showing up for myself, whether that means being in actual silence and thinking through things often. I live in a state of meditation.
What is your "why" ?
I do everything I can so that the women before me and after me will heal from society deferring their dreams.
How much of your success Do you attribute to your "tribe" Or Circle? What does yours look Like?
100%, my actions and success are a reflection of the NRG surrounding me, the people and environment.
As one of the few female producers in our society, what weight does that carry?
I don't feel like I am one of few, I know that I am one of many and I am doing my part to lead the energy and bring more visibility to what that looks like.
How does your experience navigating the world influence your creations and endeavors?
My experience is everything to my process and my actions are always in response of that.
How do you enforce boundaries for yourself?
Set clear intentions with myself and others, and check regularly to keep those intentions on track with actions.
How do you make space for more femmes of color in your industry? (Not to say its your responsibility to do so , but if you have anything to add on how you are making strides to change the industry please include it here)
Paying it forward as much as possible, vetting femmes of color around me for opportunities, and connecting the dots between the people with access and those who need it. My Never Normal Soundsystem artist collective sets a good example of a network that does that.
