Catch The Sparrow is the project of composer, arranger en vocalist Suze Terwisscha van Scheltinga (1996). From an early age, Suze loved writing stories and making music. When she realised it was possible to combine both passions, a life-long infatuation with songwriting began. Around the age of 16, Suze started performing regularly, accompanying herself on the piano and playing original songs. In 2015, she began her studies at the Utrecht Conservatory, majoring in Jazz & Pop vocals. During her time there, she started playing with a band as a way to fully explore new sounds and rhythms. Influenced by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Esperanza Spalding, Joanna Newsom and Fiona Apple, she writes thoughtful, intricate compositions, in which her inquisitive spirit shines through.
Currently, Suze is pursuing a Masters degree in Traditional and Folk music at Newcastle University, where she is studying with Emily Portman and Imogen Gunner. Her debut album "Painting The Roses Red" saw its worldwide release on the 26th of February 2021.
