D’Amour G’lamour

Theatrical pop with a jazz twist

11.20.2012

As the saying goes, “If you are tired of style, you are tired of life.” At least, that’s how it goes for Suzana d’Amour. Fronted by multilingual chanteuse Suzana Da Camara, with Dennis Song percussing, Mike Dell tinkling ivories and dream-boat bassist Randall Savoie (formerly of vision-in-spandex BoyTech), this sumptuous quartet has blazed a name for itself bylayering style on top of substance on top of style.
 
Looking like the Scissor Sisters by way of Bob Fosse, this flashy foursome coined their genre "theatrical pop" -- contemporary pop music with a sophisticated air of jazz all presented in a very visual, theatrical experience. “We’ve been compared to Pink Martini a lot,” Savoie says. “We have snippets of Kate Bush. Someone referred to me as the French Sade, which is very flattering” Da Camara says.
 
Of course, the glamour and sensuality isn’t lost on a gay audience. Says Da Camara of their gay following, “ [We attract] any audience with an artistic flare or appreciation for expression. I find our music attracts quirky, forward-thinking people in general.” Something they hope to explore further with an upcoming remix EP of songs off their current self-titled album, currently available on iTunes. — Andrew Johnston
