About Susan Werner

Susan Werner was born near Manchester, Iowa, which is also where she was brought up and developed interest in music from a very young age. She received her bachelor’s degree in voice from the University of Iowa. By 1987, she was on her way to Philadelphia, where she soon got her master’s degree in voice from Temple University. Initially, Werner wanted to pursue a career in opera, but after attending a performance by Nancy Griffith, she felt overwhelming inspired and started composing her own songs on an acoustic guitar.

Susan Werner began playing music around Philadelphia, including New York and Boston, where she first made her name among folk musicians at the start of the nineties. Between 1993 and 2001, she recorded five albums, and decided to relocate to Chicago. First five of her albums, comprise strongly of folk elements, but her sixth labium titled I Can’t be New released in 2004, finally reflected her departure from the genre. This album included original material that boasted of early jazz and cabaret torch songs, and brought her a broad range of exposure. She appeared on the show Morning Edition on National Public Radio in 2004, soon after which she was made the emcee of the two night-long, forty-five hundred seat Ann Arbor Folk Festival the following year.  The songs on I Can’t be New served as a breakthrough; some of these tunes like the title track in which the artist places herself in the shoes of a woman looking at her lover’s wandering eyes, was set in the mold of Werner’s songwriting favorites, Cole Porter. Though the album was marked with all the classic patterns, it had an unarguably contemporary edge to its compositions while alongside it expressed views openly on hushed-down topics such as being bold about female sexuality, and displaying the downslide of bad marital relationships.

Susan Werner’s seventh offering The Gospel Truth, was issued in March 2007, and spoke of yet another change in lyrical context since the artist had addressed serious themes of faith, social responsibility and religion while also expressing religion from the perspective of an Agnostic. Her next album titled Live at Club Passim presented a collection of more original songs characterized with elements of folk, jazz and gospel genres. This album was recorded with her band, consisting of bassist Greg Holt, Trina Hamlin and Colleen Sexton. On her ninth album, simply called Classics, Werner plays pop music of the sixties and seventies coupled with chamber instruments. Her innovative skills in creating compositions and unusual lyrical contexts have brought her critical acclaim; the Music Row has called her ‘great. period’, while the Philadelphia Inquirer has commented on her to be one who redefines the genre (jazz and classical music). Werner’s live performance is one not to be missed so grab some cheap Susan Werner tickets and be there to be inspired.
