Sweet Tropical Dreams Album Review

Mark Dean • • August 2016

"An enjoyable blend of island sounds from Reggae, Hawaiian and Calypso to a little Country and Surfer Rock, it’s a real tropical oasis flowing from the speakers. Suzan’ah lyrics hit all your senses evoking the sounds, tastes, smells and stunning views of Hawaii mixed with feelings of love.  The overriding theme throughout the albums tracks is a good time feeling of fun. As well as singing and performing in a variety of musical styles Suzanah’s talents also extend to playing a variety of instruments on the album. She is certainly no one trick pony!"

Sweet Tropical Dreams Album Review

Cyrus Rhodes • • August 2016

"What's a nice warm tropical breeze, Jimmy Buffet, smooth feeling sand, a fresh fruity drink or freshly squeezed orange juice, a Hawaiian luau, a touch of Don Ho, along with a Latin jazzy beat combined create? Try the fun free spirited and brightly coloured music of singer-songwriter/musician Suzana'ah Free whose new album Sweet Tropical Dreams is everything her albums title says it is! ... Suzan'ah Free's latest album, Sweet Tropical Dreams, certainly carries these dreamy memories that represent relaxation along soft sandy beaches, palm trees swaying gently and the cool sounds of blue ocean waters lapping themselves against the warm beach sands. A magical and swift chariot of fun takes you where you are.. soaking up the delishness of each tune from Suzan'ah Free's newest album. A true treasure for islanders and land folk alike..."

Sweet Tropical Dreams Album Review

Breanna Davis • • August 2016

"The [Sweet Tropical Dreams] album ... has a very tropical, beachy vibe to it and I can imagine her performing barefoot in the sand with ukulele in hand. It is a very pop driven album with Island influence. She incorporates Hawaiian into her album with songs like No Ka Oi and Who Was The Lolo Who Stole My Pakalolo. The lyrics are very uplifting and calming on many of the songs. Her cover of The Lion Sleeps Tonight was very fun and a great addition to the album. Of all of the songs I enjoyed Love of My Life the most. It is a beautiful song."

Sweet Tropical Dreams Album Review

RJ Frometa • • August 2016

"The [Sweet Tropical Dreams] album kicks off with “No Ka Oi” with it’s Tex-Mex sound reminiscent of iconic artists such as Selena, the melodic guitar riffs blends with Free’s particular, somewhat mellow vocals that fits so well with every song on this material; “Seaside Serenade” it’s everything but cheesy with its upbeat, kind of electronic sound ... “Wiki Wiki Wiki” has a heavy Hawaiian vibe with the island’s particular rhythm guitars and overall sound. ... there’s a very nice cover of The Tokens’ overly famous song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)” that feels like an original rendition rather than a note-by-note copy. ... I had this impression as if Suzan’ah was kind of doing what Elvis Presley did few decades back with his Blue Hawaii record, rather than making a tropical record he kind of blended rock, blues with the Aloha’s sound."

"Space Coast" song promotes space, surfing...

Wayne T. Price •  September 14, 2016


Free wrote the song “Space Coast” in 2012 as a tribute to an area she couldn’t wait to get home to after leaving the area for a weekend performance. There just wasn't any other area in Florida that had the same appeal as Brevard for Free.

...Her song picks up the major themes the local chambers of commerce also frequently boast about – the beaches, space launches, dolphins, and, of course, fishing.
