Sue Kent's love affair with music began almost from the moment of her birth in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She was raised by musical parents in North Caldwell, New Jersey, where she would often hear Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand playing on the stereo. When Sue was 8 years old, her mom and dad took her to New York City to see West Side Story on Broadway. From that moment on, Sue knew she wanted to be a singer. Soon, she was learning songs by Glen Campbell, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra and her personal favorite, Karen Carpenter. She enjoyed putting on shows for her friends. Her parents bought Sue a guitar, which a friend taught her how to play.
Sue Kent started to sing professionally after she and her family moved to Deerfield Heights, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Only 15 years old, she began as a solo artist, singing in the local coffeehouses. Later, she formed an all-girl band, The Bridge, which became popular on the college circuit. Sue gained recognition and acclaim as a great singer after she joined the Bill LaBrose Orchestra, soon to become known as Inner Circle. The lovely singing of Sue Kent became well-known in the Chicago area, where she sang to sold-out audiences in night clubs, dinner houses, country clubs and resorts.
Eventually, Sue moved to Phoenix, Arizona to continue her singing career. She formed a new band, Windsong, which became Sue Kent & Jazz It Up, and finally the Sue Kent Band. In 1998 she went into the studio to record her first CD, Changing Direction. It was released in 2001 and re-released in 2011. Sue Kent retired from performing in 2005. Her second CD -- Love, Lost and Found was released on October 15, 2012.
