Susan Kane’s award-winning sweet and sharp Americana is an alchemy of stuff dug from the dirt, born from books, gleaned from the air, yesterday's news and tomorrow's daydreams. Her fourth CD, Mostly Fine was released in July, 2016 and received confirmed airplay on more than 150 stations around the world, with notable positions on several charts. Blog Coverlaydown.com described Mostly Fine: "...a set of potent originals that reveal a rich and eminently human inner world through the superimposition of the mundane and the magic." A New Yorker, she is an active performer in the tristate area and is a past president of the Tribes Hill music collective.
HELLO! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
Looking forward to more music making in 2020!
2019 got off to a lovely start when I learned that my song "Ring the Bells" won the Family Folk Chorale song contest.
"Susan Kane's 'Ring the Bells', the winning song of the 2019 Family Folk Chorale Songwriting competition, has been arranged for chorus by Artistic Director Chris Eastburn and will be performed by the Family Folk Chorale on Sunday March 24 at Arlington Town Hall, Arlington, Massachusetts.
The song is a perfect fit for the concert ‘A Reason to Believe’ featuring the music of Bruce Springsteen, whose rich and poignant decades-long stream of songs honor our human yearnings, authenticity and struggles.
“Ring the Bells by Susan Kane is a hope filled song about overcoming adversity. That message, so perfect for these times, is supported by experienced song writing craft and a memorable melody. The song has resonated with the Family Folk Chorale in rehearsal and we look forward to sharing it with a live audience!”
-Chris Eastburn, Musical Director
I released my fourth CD, Mostly Fine, in the middle of 2016.

It is also available at the usual places like CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and all the other streaming sites. "Jacksonville" won an honorable mention in the 33rd Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest in the folk rock/Americana/roots rock category.
