Susanna Hoffs was born into a Jewish family, a daughter of Tamar Ruth and psychoanalyst Joshua Allen Hoffs. Her mother introduced her to music at the early age, apparently frequently playing The Beatles to Susanna. She went to the Palisades High School in Los Angeles, where she started playing the guitar and matriculated in 1976. Hoffs later studied art at the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1980.

During her college days, Susanna made her movie debut in Andrew Davis’ “Stony Island” (1978). She then met Vicki Peterson and Debbi Peterson, and the three of them founded the pop band called The Bangles in 1980. The next year they released their debut single entitled “Getting Out of Hand”, and soon after, they signed a deal with Faulty Products. In 1982, Annette Zilinskas became The Bangles’ new member and the new single and LP “The Real World” came out. Zilinskas later left and was replaced by Michael Steele, a bassist, who featured on the band’s debut studio album called “All Over the Place” in 1984.

The release didn’t achieve commercial success, but the following one was one of the most lucrative albums of the mid-‘80s. “Different Light” (1986) achieved major success and triple platinum status in the US, and also platinum in the UK; it peaked at the No. 2 on Billboard 200, and No. 3 on the UK charts. The cult song “Walk Like an Egyptian” stayed at the top of the US charts for four weeks while “Manic Monday” (written by Prince) peaked at the No. 2 spot. Band members made millions, so Hoff’s net worth increased significantly.

In 1988, The Bangles released their third studio album called “Everything”, which achieved platinum status is several countries, including the US, UK, and Australia; it reached No. 15 on Billboard 200 and No. 5 on the UK charts, while the single “Eternal Flame” was the number one song. That was the peak of The Bangles, but still they released their “Greatest Hits” album in 1990, and achieved over a million sales in the US and the UK. The group disbanded in 1989, but reunited in 1999. However, they made only two more albums: “Doll Revolution” (2003) and “Sweetheart of the Sun” (2011), but failed to repeat the band’s success from the ‘80s.

Susanna Hoffs launched her solo career during the group’s break in 1991, releasing the album titled “When You’re a Boy”. She had notable fellow artists working on it such as David Kahne, Cyndi Lauper, and David Bowie, among others. It peaked at the No. 83 on the Billboard 200. In 1996, she recorded “Susanna Hoffs”, but it went rather unnoticed, the same as the next one – “Someday” (2012). Most recently, Hoffs has released two EP’s, entitled “Some Summer Days” and “From Me To You”, both in 2012, with moderate success and addition to her net worth..

Besides her projects with the bands such as Ming Tea and Sid n Susie, Hoffs also starred in the romantic comedy “The Allnighter” in 1987. She later appeared in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” (1997) starring Mike Myers and Elizabeth Hurley, and in “Austin Powers in Goldmember” (2002) with Mike Myers, Beyoncé Knowles, and Seth Green.

Regarding her personal life, Susanna Hoffs married the movie director Jay Roach in 1993, concurrently converting to Judaism and the couple has two sons. She is a vegetarian.
