Susan Sandel & Kevin Karrick



This duo can be reminiscent of the classic duo recordings of Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald, and James Taylor with Carol King, yet preserving a twist of originality by arranging the music as if it were theirs. Susan has a wealth of experience in vocal music and acting for theater and film, and Kevin lends his experience as a band leader, vocalist, and solo guitarist to create this magical musical experience.

On occassion, Susan and Kevin are joined by famed Oregon guest musicians, like Eddie Parente on violin and Dave Captein on upright bass. Check out their live concert video in the Video and Audio section.

“I am super excited about this duo and the chemistry that Susan and I share in music and on stage. It's such a thrill to work with a vocalist that understands performing arts and sings with such musical prowess.” - Kevin
