The Music

Pop/ Groove/ Jazz

Call Me Cleo uniquely combines Pop, Groove and Jazz creating a powerful, dark and energetic sound.

Being the mastermind behind it all half – american leadsinger Susanne Folk „Cleo“ personifies a kind of modern Cleopatra: „I find that the imagery has been snaking its way through my music all along, the visual aspect underlining my magestical and ambiguous songs. While based on my own true feelings my songs are never meant autobiographically, they tell stories and play with imagery that is far greater than myself…“ But the real epiphany of it all lies in a song the title of which is the bandname itself and will leave people scratching their chins a little less after having heard it.

Determined drum beats, catchy basslines and a wide sound spectrum from the keys mingle with the recognizable warm and strong female voice.

While unique grooves underline the imagery-filled lyrics the instrumental parts leave room for improvisation and the structures of the songs differ widely. The combination of those musical influences is a creative one and new in its individual form of Pop music today.

 

The Songs

recorded as demos so far talk about being a comforting friend and a powerful force, the attempt to live in the moment and almost succeeding, inner torment and accepting one´s darkside, awareness of today´s cost of constant availability and about a dramatic and exhilarating journey.

Please have a listen!

 

The Name

A few years back associations with Cleopatra mysteriously floated into my life and gradually sucked me in. I find that the imagery has been snaking its way through my music all along, the visual aspect underlining my magestical and ambiguous songs. I could never picture myself as a singer just being myself. I like to dive into the role I am impersonating, making it my own. While based on my own true feelings my songs are never meant autobiographically, they tell stories and play with imagery that is far greater than myself. That´s why you can

CALL ME CLEO

 

“I have many faces, some of them I will reveal

For you slowly

I´ll take you for a ride and probably you´ll either love me

or you´ll hate me

 

You can call me

Call me Cleo

You can call

You can call me Cleo!”
