Suzanna Choffel qualifies for The Deli's Best of NYC 2013 Poll's final stage (2nd place in ALT FOLK category)

What's a music teacher from Austin to do after scoring a million hits on YouTube with a beautiful cover of 'Landslide' on NBC's 'The Voice'? Move to Brooklyn and become our borough's (not so) best kept secret.

Suzanna Choffel has huge chops, (despite her diminutive stature), and those pipes usually mean business. Tracks like 'Race Car' and 'Hot Shot' from her just -released LP 'Archer' bring home a confident medley of her country and soul roots, to a broken heart constantly challenged to do her thing her own way. Think Dusty Springfield... with a little more grit. Check out beautiful DIY video of "Golden Fires" below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
