Up & Gone
Susan has been writing songs and performing since the early 1980's. Her style is pure Americana, a blend of country, mountain, blues, rockabilly,folk and gospel that is ingrained in her. She was proud to be nominated for Radio Six International's Record of the Year 2004 for the song 'The Lesson' from her Small Town Girl album (also available on CD Baby. This album 'Up and Gone' is her third and a bit of a departure from her last two. The addition of Joshua Krieger on lead guitar and bass has added a new level to the style that so many world-wide have come to enjoy. Three songs on this album are traditional songs that Susan grew up listening to as the family traveled from one state to another as her father went where the work was. Dr. Ralph Stanley, The Osbourne Brothers and her mother and aunts inspired Susan to include 'Master's Bouquet', 'Take This Hammer'. Her version of 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken' - is energizing with a rockabilly flavor that will keep you playing it over and over. 'Circle' is always the last song performed at Susan's live performances and everyone always asks for more. Susan also dedicates the song 'She Waits' to everyone, everywhere who is waiting for someone to come back to them. Thanks to both you and the ones you are waiting for, for the sacrifice. The rest of the songs are dedicated to everybody who has been so kind this past year. The DJ's and their listeners, the fans at the shows, the MP3 crowd and everybody who drops me an e-mail. Susan hopes to meet all of you one of these days. Listen for Susan's songs on 339 radio stations world-wide, with more being added all the time.
