Suzi Moon & Billy Hopeless Release Pair of Duets with “Nothing Left to Lose”

Suzi Moon and Billy Hopeless (The Black Halos) have released a duo of duets on Nothing Left To Lose. The album is a two-song 7″ which has been released by Yeah Right! The two met and hit it off when Suzi’s band Civet were touring and crossed paths with The Black Halos.

Suzi explains:

“I’ve been a fan of Billy Hopeless / The Black Halos since I was sixteen. Working with him has been on my bucket list for a long, long time. We suffer the same kinda rock ‘n’ roll affliction that makes us different than other folks. There’s a mutual respect between us that comes from being frontmen. I greatly admire his work.”

Billy reached out over social media about a duet project and Suzi got to work writing a song that would feature both of their strengths as lead singers. “Love Is A Stranger,” described by Suzi as a gut-wrenching “pirate ghost waltz,” about unrequited love and features organ playing by Suzi Moon guitarist Drew Champion. “Communicado,” the B side, is more upbeat and playful and was written by Billy Hopeless backed by The Let Me Downs.

Billy describes how it all transpired:

“I first met Suzi back when she was in the band Civet. I dug her style and vice versa, so now years later we’re back together doing it like pros. She’s got her gang with her, and I pulled in one time Black Halos getaway driver and gunman Pat Hall. His new crew, The Let me Downs, backed me up. By now I’m sure you nice folks know the drill. Hands up, you’re about to be rocked!”

Upon reflecting on the process, Suzi has this to say:

“Duets are such an interesting task. When it came to recording vocals for Billy’s song ‘Communicado,’ I worked really hard to harmonize with him and give the song a bit of playfulness versus the somber tone of my track. It was a joy to sing on, and it gets stuck in my head all the time!”
