"Sue Gartland is a very gentle original. She writes wistful songs of longing for things she's never done, powerful and precise snapshots from memories past, tales of brokenness, of subtle triumph of grace over duress. Even her affirmations of faith are humble and artful. A sweet and understated voice that will lull you into a very comfortable place, then suddenly startle you with a stark observation earned through life experience.' --Jack Erdie, Singer/Songwriter "Lovely, contemporary folk inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Nancy Griffith." --Scott Mervis Pittsburgh Post Gazette Born into a military family at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky Sue Gartland spent most of her childhood years moving from place to place until her family finally settled in Pittsburgh, PA in 1967. Sue now lives with her husband in Plum Borough where they raised their four children. Once her children were grown Sue was able to put more time and effort into songwriting, performing and recording her music. Her early musical influences include the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Melanie and Carol King. Sue Gartland takes us on a journey through time and introduces us to unforgettable people and places. Her lyrics and melodies are drawn from life's experience and delivered in a style that's all her own with a gentle and soothing voice. Sue has just completed a new CD titled "Ford Fairlane" featuring 13 original songs and a Johnny Cash tune. Earlier projects include an EP recorded in 2000, and songs on compilation albums released by the Pittsburgh Songwriters' Circle in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
