Susan Cattaneo is one of Bostons most respected songwriters. A powerful singer and sophisticated writer, Susan combines vivid storytelling with a modern songwriter’s spin. Respectful of tradition, but not bound by it, Susan blends rock, folk and blues with a healthy dose of country. Call it New England Americana with a twang.
Susan’s latest album, Haunted Heart was released in January 2014 to national acclaim. It was voted one of Alternate Roots Top 100 Albums of the Year, and won Album of the Year at the Limelight Music Awards.
In addition to being a solo performing artist, Susan has been teaching songwriting at the Berklee College of Music for over 10 years, and has recently joined the Western Mass trio The Boxcar Lilies.
“Ultimately it’s rare to find an artist so willing to invest her psyche so fully into her songs, but the return on Cattaneo’s commitment also makes for a compelling set of songs.” American Songwriter
“She’s able to blend gritty semi-confessional bluesy sounds with poetic conversational lyrics.” Austin Daze
“Her voice is somewhere between national treasure and weapon of mass destruction.” Daily Vault
