Three songs, two acts. Today’s star artists are different in many ways, but united to deliver quality in two very different genres. This week, we’ll meet songwriter Daniel Young, found in a collaborative and ambient mood, as well as new Salt Lake City pop/R&B artist Suchii.

Suchi, “Pit a Pat”
While Audio Inn’s in-house producer Rowan Stigner added his studio expertise to the production, the rest of “Pit a Pat” is all Suchii, be it “the vocals, the rapping, the lyrics, the harmonies , all that”.

His move into writing and recording music is new – about as new as his move to Salt Lake City in 2021. He had graduated from college in 2020, before taking a corporate job at Goldman Sachs in a “sweet spot between technology and finance”. work with software developers and test engineers.

After quitting his career as a day laborer to give music his singular focus earlier this year, he currently spends time on the piano, having grown up singing in the Baptist church while learning sax as a child.

Its first single is “Pit a Pat,” a relationship-themed affair that was born out of a singular experience, as our protagonist was about to sing karaoke, only to see an ex arrive on stage. Lyrically, “that feeling of ambivalence is exactly what ‘Pit a Pat’ describes, hating your ex, but not being over them.”

Her goal is to drop a seven-song EP by August, though a single/two could emerge by then. The music he makes is influenced by “Eurodance, electropop, alternative R&B and, of course, post-disco”. All this is reflected in “Pit a Pat”.

However, it may take some time for Suchii to go to the local stage; first, he wants to create a bigger batch of original songs to play. After that, though? “I can’t wait to release more music, to build my fanbase both locally in Utah and nationally,” Suchii said. “As an artist, I want to give people something to smile about.”

Daniel Young and Dittocrush, “Coral Rose” and “Monday Matinee”
New to creating and delivering instrumental music to the masses, veteran Salt Lake City songwriter Daniel Young has found a way to revive an old riff while working on a digital sonic exploration across the country with the Pittsburgh artist Dittocrush (aka former SLC resident Mangey Moonie). Combining what Young calls “a good mix of folk, American and ambient music,” the collaboration resulted in a pair of songs in “Coral Rose” and “Matinee Monday.”

The latter is the one that was on Young’s workbench for 15 years, a riff looking for a home, which was found by sending the initial sketch of the song through the backboard in Pennsylvania. There, Moonie added her production and instrumentation touches, along with the sweet pedal steel sounds of Muskrat Jones, giving both songs a charming, brooding quality.

Either, it seems, could be very useful to human ears, whether the songs find a second life as backing tracks for a movie or a podcast, or simply by becoming a prime choice for, say, a drive through the desert to Wendover. . They are lovely songs indeed.

Released in March of this year, the cuts are currently standalone works, although Young hopes to continue a successful collaboration with Dittocrush while also releasing tracks under his own name, including another single which is set to be released.

“Collaborating with Dittocrush is pretty fascinating,” Young says, “because he’ll send me parts of songs he’s written with tape loops or whatever he’s doing there in the lab, and I will have no idea how he did what he did.”
