Matt Davis’ Aerial Photograph is a 10 piece original jazz group led by New York based guitarist and composer Matt Davis. Described as “Inspired” by Downbeat Magazine, “Incredible” by the Philadelphia Daily News and “Eloquent” by JazzTimes, the group performs in and around the NYC area. The group’s unique instrumentation of guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone and a string quartet make for a distinctive and expressive voice for this imaginative music.

Susan joined NYC based band, all boy/all girl, in January 2015. In recent news, all boy/ all girl is in the process of recording a full length album with preview showcases in early 2016.

"On the surface, all boy/all girl might seem like just another acoustic band. But the NYC-based septet uses its array of stringed instruments — cello, viola, guitar, double bass and ukulele — in a manner more akin to an experimental noise band. Fusing pop sensibilities with experimental curiosity and a flair for the theatric, the band bends perceptions of the limits of acoustic instruments."
