*********************************************************

Sue Straumann and Steve Horvath's road to becoming RiffRaffHQ began as former co-workers who used to rehearse with eclectic country-bluegrass group the Termites of Tonality at lunchtime in a small company supply closet.

Sue Straumann is a songwriter, former professional sound engineer, and classically trained vocalist. Though a jokingly self-dubbed "Bad Girl", Sue will be the first to admit that her biggest breaks in the music business have come from working hard and being a nice person, falling into a Philadelphia-area recording studio job after offering to lend a helping hand to some tired engineers stowing audio cables one evening, and being recommended due to her down-to-earth personality for study under vocal coach to a number of Top 40 pop artists, Mary Pettibone, at the home of her son Shep Pettibone, reknowned music producer and co-writer with Madonna of the #1 pop song "Vogue".

Proficient in playing numerous musical instruments (keyboards, guitar, saxophone, accordion, ukulele, and upright bass to name a few), Steve Horvath, known as "H-Man" or "Little Stevie" to his friends and fellow musicians, provides the heart and soul of the musical arranging and performance for RiffRaffHQ. A lifelong musician, Steve is undaunted by any music genre, playing pop, jazz, bluegrass, R&B, rock, disco, big band, and anything else anyone can throw at him with the same flawless ease.

Together the complimentary talents of these two performers combine to form a duet that is a special blend of original music and a quirky sense of humor. RiffRaffHQ's initial release, Bad Girl All Year Long, was #1 on CD Baby independent artist holiday charts for 7 weeks and has become a hilarious new holiday classic.
