Oh Susanna (CAN)

Fri 21st April 2017

In a career spanning almost two decades, Oh Susanna has released seven critically acclaimed records noted for their contemplative, thoughtful, folk-inspired songs that transport listeners into an imaginary emotional landscape. Whether applauding a young woman’s need to stand tall in the face of dire circumstances, expressing love and tenderness to a dying loved one or embodying the anger of a soldier’s widow, Oh Susanna’s songs aim straight for the gut. The timeless themes of love, loss and longing are expressed in soaring melodies and vivid lyrics.

Her most recent project is Namedropper, a killer collection of songs written especially for Oh Susanna by Canada’s top songwriters. The album was created with and produced by Jim Bryson.

‘This project is about friendship. Through music we want to express our admiration, gratitude and respect for our fellow Canadian songwriters. They kick us in the ass. They break our hearts. They inspire.’

‘Oh Susanna has become a musician to be reckoned with…. The strength and intensity of her voice has an edge that conveys the evil of country blues.’ – No Depression

‘A solo performance by Oh Susanna is a singularly spine-tingling event.’ – The Georgia Straight
