Suzanne's Band - "Underneath The Tree”


Reviewed by Aaron Cloutier


Crisp acoustic guitars juxtaposed with shaker and soulful vocals set the tone for “Underneath The Tree” by Texas-based singer/songwriter Mia Suzanne Walker.


Walker’s work draws inspiration from various genres, including Classic Rock, Pop, and Country music; however, she and her “Suzanne’s Band” serve up some straight-ahead Folk on this acoustic number.

Through the major tonality and lyrical content, Walker weaves a heartwarming holiday narrative with lyrics such as…

“Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always

Underneath the tree is where love grows

The magic of the season unfolds

It’s not an ordinary day share the holiday spirit always

Underneath the tree underneath the tree

Underneath the tree”

I particularly like how the arrangements develop as the song progresses. In addition to soaring sustained backing vocals and resonant violin passages, the performance introduces low-profile bass lines and gentle percussion. The instrumentals create a driving rhythm when blended with the aforementioned acoustic instruments. It serves to accentuate the cozy mood of the lyrical content.

Overall, “Underneath The Tree” has all the trappings that make for a heavy hitter in the realm of holiday music. If you’re a fan of country-infused folk with a rich sense of storytelling, I think you’ll find this to be a welcomed addition to your playlist.
