Susan Bear

Introducing musician, producer and sound designer Susan Bear, a much respected and sought-after stalwart of the Scottish music scene.

Whether as producer, songwriter, bassist, keyboardist, or something in between, Suse has variously worked with artists including Tuff Love, Pictish Trail, Martha Ffion, The Pastels, Malcolm Middleton, Karine Polwart and Goodnight Louisa and as a sound designer / composer and on award winning Fringe theatre shows, commercials and games.

Her debut album as a solo artist Creature (2020) – released under previous moniker, Good Dog - featured the Spotify and Apple Music playlisted song ‘Floating’ (“Gentle, dreamy mood music” – The Scotsman). In 2022 Susan released her second LP, Alter, it was supported by BBC Radio 6 Music- Radcliffe & Maconie, Amy Lamé and BBC Scotland's Vic Galloway & Roddy Hart. Susan writes, performs, produces, engineers and mixes all her music solo.

Her new material, due for release late autumn 2023, sees Susan lean further into her electronic side establishing a new direction - still melancholy tapey music to reflect to but this time upping the energy and production taking influence from club & dance music.
