Small Town Girl
Susan Campton has a voice that is down to earth, clear and rich. Her songs are the songs of Appalachian Roots with a mix of traditional country and a bit of gospel. Small Town Girl is a good reflection of that back ground.This album has been called 'the best CD I've ever heard', 'stays in my car's CD all the time now, I love it', 'sweet and earthy', and 'raw'. The song 'The Lesson' was nominated for RECORD OF THE YEAR on Radio Six International and the CD played for 10 weeks! DJ's have described her voice as 'great for story telling', 'real', and 'haunting'. She was raised all over the US as far west as Missouri, as far south of Texas and up the East Coast, but has always considered the family stomping ground of Southern Ohio Home. The song 'Appalachain Home' explains her feelings for the area. Susan says living along the Ohio river gives her the best of both worlds - she really can see Kentucky from her front porch! All that moving around as a kid was usually done in a U-Haul or car and the family spent the time singing. They sang everything from Old Gospel to Country and Rock. Her muscial influences are folks like the Carters, Ralph Stanley, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris. Susan works with her husband, Bill, who is also her producer. They have been local for several years but are beginning to branch out. She hopes you like this CD, as much as she and Bill liked creating it. Her music plays on radio stations in 12 countries and 8 states in the USA. She also hopes to see you at one of her shows soon. Entertainment for the whole family!
