Suzanne Rhatigan sang her way through a number of bands in her home town Dublin before her first session in Windmill Lane studios kicked off her professional career. Having moved to London she became the singer of choice for Stock Aitken Waterman working on many of their hits in the late 80s and early nineties. She can be heard on classics by Kylie Minogue, Bananarama and Rick Astley among others. It was during this time that Suzanne began writing and recording with David Barratt in The Rest Is History and many of David’s other productions.
Suzanne went on to release her 1st solo album ‘To Hell With Love’ Imago/RCA, which highlighted her eclectic song writing style covering pop, blues, rock and folk. Her 2nd album ‘Late Developer’ Org Records,marks a change in direction from main stream pop to alternative garnering widespread critical acclaim. Late Developer is now available for download www.suzannerhatigan.bandcamp.com
Now back home in Dublin following time out with her young family Suzanne is writing and performing again with an album planned for this year.
