Suzie Brown & Jenee Halstead

While contemplating your goal of being a music star, it’s smart to have something to fall back on. For singer-songwriter Suzie Brown, that meant getting her MD at Harvard, a Master of Science in Translational Research from the University of Pennsylvania, then practicing cardiology. That’s right, Brown—whose first full-length, Heartstrings, was released in May 2011—is no slacker. And it’s with that same resolve that she decided one day to defer her dream no longer.
