Susan Santos is an American blues musician who is now plying her trade in Europe…
Susan will be playing at The Leopard in Doncaster with her band on Wednesday 11th March……good news for blues, blues-rock fans and live music lovers in South Yorkshire!
A great passion for music led Susan to learn how to play guitar and sing. Step by step the lefty guitarist and singer created her own songs with her own particular style of understanding music. After playing in several bands, she moved to Madrid in 2009 and formed her own named band. This is her most powerful project to date; a power trio that mixes blues and rock & American roots music.
In 2018 Susan was awarded the Best Musician (Performance) category at the European Blues Awards and in 2019 she was nominated for Texas Sounds Music Awards.
“Susan Santos is a guitar hero. She has chops to spare. She is a monster in the studio, overdubbing well performed layers of guitar that sound live and immediate. Santos is also an accomplished songwriter who crafts sturdy, hook laden numbers.But, there are not any real Blues burners. There is not a traditional 12 bar pattern anywhere. However, for those purists who are looking for this talented slinger to lay it down old school check out some of the YouTube videos of Santos and band. She can get down and weep out a deep 12 bar Blues like nobody’s business. With this her 5th record, No U Turn is a high point for a deep soulful artist in her prime.” (Blues Blast Magazine, US)
No U Turn reached Nº 5 in the most played Album in February 2019 (Independent Blues Broadcasters Association, UK)
