Susan Tedeschi – The Plant (1999)

SusanTedeschiThePlantFCGuitarist, singer, and songwriter Susan Tedeschi is part of the new generation of blues musicians looking for ways to keep the form exciting, vital, and evolving. Tedeschi’s live shows are by no means straight-ahead urban blues. Instead, she freely mixes classic R&B, blues ,and her own gospel and blues-flavored originals into her sets. She’s a young, sassy blues belter with musical sensibilities that belie her years.

Tedeschi began singing when she was four and already active in local choir and theater in Norwell, a southern suburb of Boston. At 13, she began singing with local bands and continued her music studies at Berklee, honing her guitar skills and also joining the Reverence Gospel Ensemble. She started the first incarnation of her blues band upon graduating in 1991.

The Susan Tedeschi Band’s second album, Just Won’t Burn, was released on the Boston-based Tone-Cool Records in early 1998.

This wonderful radio-show was made to promote this album; it´s a beautiful possbility to discover this lady of the Blues.
