Biography

Susan W. LaVelle is a singer and lyricist from the Twin Cities. Susan performs her original lyrics in songs, blues, and ballads with a touch of jazz in a duo with her composing partner, Matt Dorland. A love for writing and singing has been hers since childhood, which led her to a professional focus on and a master’s degree in writing and scientific and technical communication. As a professional writer and information designer, she focuses on social media, branding, marketing, and photo and video editing. Since the difficulties of 2020 curtailed so many activities for musicians and caused extra stress in her hometown area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Susan has put together a video concert series "Uniting the Twin Cities With Music" featuring original music by Twin Cities musicians reacting and expressing their experiences in 2020 and beyond. See the YouTube video (below) that premiered her and Matt's original song written during the Covid season, "Keep Holding On."
