Suzi Sabotage was born in Helsinki, Finland on July 27th 1992 to a Russian mother and Finnish father. She found music around nine years old and since then was interested in singing and writing lyrics. She couldn’t relate to anyone or anything in her youth and spent it in mental isolation, then finding punk music at 15, when she was being treated for her troubled behavior in an instutution. Having no success at school, Suzi formed her first, all-female band Melusaaste, influenced by Finnish hardcore of the 80’s, in 2009. She began a more turbulent lifestyle, being on her own even in the punk scene, which has been reluctant to embrace her headstrong and deviant nature.
In late 2012, she made her long-time vision of a post-punk band true, forming Masquerade. Having a battalion of past members, she’s the only surviving original member to this day, managing the band and also writing, composing and arranging songs. In February 2015 she married Jacques Saph (Secular Plague, Sleeping Children, Virgin in Veil) who became Masquerade’s bassist. In 2015 she joined Virgin in Veil as the keyboardist and background vocalist.
