Sunset's 'Kitten on the Keys' Tours World

Suzanne Ramsey is an accomplished San Francisco cabaret singer and musician with a growing international reputation. Known as "Kitten on the Keys," Ramsey's instruments include ukulele and accordion, but her preferred instrument is a piano, which she has been playing since childhood. Her stage name is taken from a 1922 ragtime ditty by Zez Confrey, and Ramsey describes her mind's whirling activity as feeling "like I have a dozen little furry-footed friends clawing away at my grey matter."
