AURIC ZEPHYR and WIND DIZZY: the Musical Alter Egos of Suzanna Young Everett
Auric Zephyr ("auric" meaning "of the ears" or "one's energetic field" and "zephyr" referring to a calm westerly breeze) will mollify you into deep relaxation and bliss with this artist’s New Age compositions.
Having immersed herself in spa relaxation music for nearly two decades as a licensed massage therapist, Suzanna Young Everett, otherwise known as Auric Zephyr, self-released her debut New Age album in 2018, entitled Voyage to Peace, which emerged as a culmination of a year spent soul searching, exploring, defining, honing, and--most importantly--honoring her own personal dreams and Spirit’s calling.
Humming her first original tune in the bathtub at age three, this Santa Barbara, California native began classical music training learning piano basics and playing violin in the elementary school orchestra with now opera star Nina Yoshida. She was one of the youngest students at the Santa Barbara Music and Arts Conservatory (MAC), a program for gifted and talented students, where she specialized in the creative writing program with Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Perie Longo. At age 12, through her association with MAC, Young was asked to sing back-up vocals on a professional album, initiating her into the world of studio performance.
Under the artist name Wind Dizzy, Suzanna has since enjoyed much solo success in the studio, producing her own brand of songs such as “Cigarette” and “Another Week or So.” Both earned Honorable Mention accolades from VH1’s Song of the Year contest. A VH1 music marketing supervisor commented on “Another Week Or So: “The melodies were playful. The music pushes you forward, inward, outward and through various layers of sounds, while the vocals bring out the passion and energy in the song.”
Suzanna participated as a First Soprano with the Santa Barbara Choral Society and the University of Michigan, where she majored in Creative Writing and Spanish. Furthering her training with courses from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Suzanna grew increasingly inspired to set her poetry to music and is now emerging onto the music scene with rampant vitality.
Wind Dizzy’s recent projects (2018-present) include instrumental compositions designed for film and television, including her investigative tension cues that will put you on the edge of your seat, screaming at your favorite detective, "Don't open the door!" You'll be curling up with all the blankets in the house as your spine chills to the bone with her ominous instrumental catalog.
But just when you think you can't take any more tension, the artist eases your mind, body, and soul with the deeply relaxing music of Auric Zephyr, her musical alter ego. If Wind Dizzy puts you in a tailspin of emotions and excitement, Auric Zephyr will help you drift off into the ether and revel in harmonious tranquility a la the soothing sounds of Deuter and Steven Halpern. Auric Zephyr is presently working on her second album, "On the Ether Side of the Universe," a collection of deeply relaxing instrumentals with a “stellar” theme.
Suzanna is affiliated with ASCAP and SoundExchange and has cultivated a grassroots-built fan base of nearly 1,000 email addresses and can be heard on major music streaming and procurement platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, and others. Fans have reviewed her debut "Voyage to Peace" album: "...Your album is great background music for focused work! It’s helping me be productive today!" "I listen to Auric Zephyr to help me fall asleep at night and while meditating!" "I find it uplifting!" "Beautiful!"
