(1909 - 1987)

Dana Suesse spent her childhood in the spotlight of Kansas City, Missouri, giving piano recitals, appearing in vaudeville, broadcasting on radio and writing poetry for the newspapers. She moved to New York City in 1926, and within weeks of her arrival she had copyrighted piano solos and tried her hand at popular songs. Her instrumental, Syncopated Love Song, was first performed on radio in 1928.

By 1930 the entertainment industry was paying close attention to Dana Suesse. Lyricist Leo Robin created a lyric, Have You Forgotten? for the second strain of Syncopated Love Song, and the song was recorded on every label in America and Britain. Soon after, she was signed by Famous Music Publishers and composed two more international hits, Whistling In The Dark and Ho Hum!
