The Official San Antonio Album Release Show for «Hello Goodbye»!

Having a sixth sense is something Pisces people take for granted. But March-born singer-songwriter Suzanna Choffel's latest album, «Hello Goodbye,» contains one song that proved remarkably prescient even to her. When Choffel wrote «Go Forth,» an inspirational ballad whose lyrics seemingly impart advice from a loving parent, she thought the only thing she was trying to hatch was the album. A week later, she learned she was pregnant with her first child.

Several of «Hello Goodbye's» songs could be associated with major events in Choffel's life. She's had many in the last few years, from appearing on season three of The Voice and moving from her Austin hometown to New York for three years, to earning a major grant from Black Fret and performing before thousands of January 2017 Women's March participants at the Texas State Capitol. But just as that song predated knowledge of her pregnancy, many tracks on this album — an earthy, lush folk-funk mélange of blues, jazz, soul, dreamy electro-pop and her unique vocal colorings — predated those experiences, along with such events as a scary brush with mortality after leaving her baby for the first time to perform in France. (Fortunately, only possessions were lost when the chateau where she was staying burst into flames.)

Ironically, those post-recording experiences serve as detailed illustrations of the album's central theme: How to reconcile the push-pull of opposing desires? For Choffel, that manifests as a struggle to balance the seemingly conflicting pursuits of family life and musical adventures. But swimming in opposite directions is what Pisceans do. Even the new album itself reflects that duality; its vinyl-oriented sequencing creates a distinct mood shift from side A to side B. You'll just have to listen to find out more.
