Sue Mansour: Vocals
All members of Soraia bring to the group a wide array of influences culminating into the unique sound and energy they release: Old, New bluesy, soulful, hard-hitting, ALIVE rock n’ roll. The spirit and tones are familiar, yet the integrity of their music and live performance are extraordinary: five unique personalities sharing passion for a harder, rawer rock sound.
This is a band that is on the road as much as possible, constantly improving upon their live shows and building following. They've found pockets of fans in most college towns, and continue to build on successes through hard work, focus, and passion for what they do. They've spent the last two years playing festivals, touring the Midwest and South, and working closely on songwriting and recording with producer, Obie O'Brien.
In his review of the record, Anthony Kuzminski declares, ”Soraia are not hopping on any bandwagons, they merely check vintage classic rock riffs and find a way to swathe them into a package that is intoxicating and enthralling. There is a profound depth to the lyrics …enhanced by the layered roars of guitars that make you yearn for a time where albums and artists ruled the landscape…. the real star is Mansour’s cooing vocals paired with the elliptical lyrics which combined make Shed the Skin a harrowing, endearing and essential album….”
