NEM#177: Susan Cattaneo Leaves Nashville and Finds Herself

Susan teaches songwriting at Berklee and has released six albums since 2009. She wanted to be a Nashville songwriter, decided to then sing country songs herself, but that felt phony, so she remade her whole style.

We discuss "Broken Things" (and listen at the end to "Time + Love + Gravity") from All Is Quiet (2022), "Revival" from Haunted Heart (2014), "Shave" from Heaven to Heartache (2011). Intro: "Work Hard Love Harder" from The Hammer & the Heart (2017). More at
