Catch The Sparrow is the project of composer, arranger en vocalist Suze Terwisscha van Scheltinga. 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 commenced her studies at the Utrecht Conservatory, majoring in Jazz & Pop vocals in 2019. During her time there, she started playing with a band as a way to fully explore new sounds and rhythms. 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. Influenced by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Lisa Knapp, Joanna Newsom and Fiona Apple, her compositions effortlessly cross boundaries of style and genre in an exciting blend of folk, jazz and pop.
Her debut album "Painting The Roses Red" saw its worldwide release on the 26th of February 2021.
