Susannah got her start working with Prince in the mid-1980s during sister Wendy's stint with The Revolution. During this period, she was tapped to be a joint lead vocalist of one of Prince's side projects, The Family. Prince wrote The Family's 1985 song, "Nothing Compares 2 U", about Melvoin. The selection charted when Sinéad O'Connor covered it in 1990.

She designed the Dream Factory jacket, and, in addition to Wendy & Lisa of The Revolution, received a credit on Sign o' the Times (she co-wrote the song "Starfish and Coffee").
