SUZANNE'S BAND: UNDERNEATH THE TREE


Americana, Country-Blues combination Suzanne's Band is the official vehicle driven by Texas based singer/songwriter Mia Suzanne Walker. Suzanne’s career highlights include her recent acceptance into the Recording Academy (Grammy’s) and her rapid development as an established You Tube artist. Suzanne’s live shows are a blend of music covering the last seven decades, and are usually a mix of classic rock, pop and country. Booking is available as a solo, duo, trio or full band act. Suzanne’s original songs are also woven into the set list. The non-genre specific approach to Suzanne’s songwriting creates an entirely different basis to build on along with introspective ideals and the importance of self-worth laced into the lyrics. If you're looking for a deeper connection to life through music, Suzanne's Band is it!


The most recent album Ice and Fire dropped earlier this year. All social media, You Tube, website, latest album link, etc. can be found in one easy link at https://flow.page/suzannesband


Underneath The Tree lyrics

©Mia Suzanne Walker 040521


Underneath the tree is a peaceful manger scene

A little baby King animals and wise men three

Ornaments and candy canes covered in lights of red and green

That blink on and off and at the very top an angel sways to

Harp played melodies


Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always


All around the tree pretty presents wrapped a mystery

For children big and small see the wonder of it all and

The joy for those who believe


Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always


Love yourself enough to give the gift that matters most

Love the ones around you feel the warmth hold them close

Raise your glass make a toast to another year here goes


Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always

Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always

Underneath the tree underneath the tree

Underneath the tree


What are your favorite lyrics from your latest single?


It’s not an ordinary day. Share the holiday spirit always.


What kind of pull did you feel about making the single?


I love Christmas and wanted to do a coffee shop vibe type holiday song.

This one spoke to me of the importance of keeping all the reasons for celebrating the season intact.


Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference?

I’m definitely a loner but also enjoy collabs with other musicians that can help with ideas on the composing area which I’m weaker at.


Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table?

Never.


What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished?

I have an outside source I send songs to that gives me feedback on the connectivity of the words and structure with the music. Once I’ve made those corrections, the song is put in queue to go to the studio for production.


What was the goal for making the latest track?

To have an acoustic coffee shop vibe type holiday song.


Challenges to the new music that no one would know about?

At first it was more of a love song but it didn’t blend with the other verse already written. I had to rewrite the first verse and make it more observable of what was being seen and felt from a general perspective.


Favorite memory in the making of this music?


Always the studio! The best part of any of my songs is when they are played by the musicians for the first time and you hear it as a whole.


Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music?

Sometimes it involves ignoring the phone, the door, eating, etc. to stay focused on finishing a song so I don’t lose the magic of the moment.


Leave us on a high note! And share some good news!

Underneath the Tree just won 3rd place in the We Are the Music awards for 2022 Best Holiday Song category.
