What stories hide in the dark corners of the heart? Susan Cattaneo brings these tales to light in her fourth record, Haunted Heart. Blending the music of Americana, roots rock, and folk with a hint of country, this intimate album is sure to hold your attention and capture your heart.
The album features a who’s who of New England’s best roots musicians including Kevin Barry (Ray LaMontagne), Lyle Brewer (Ryan Montbleau) Stu Kimball (Bob Dylan) Duke Levine (J. Geils Band), Richard Gates (Melissa Ferrick) and Jimmy Ryan, along with the some amazing out of towners, Kenny White (Peter Wolf, Shawn Colvin) on keys and Marco Giovino (Buddy Miller, Robert Plant) on drums.
Born and raised in New Jersey but spending summers on a Arizona ranch, Susan embraces both an east coast music sensibility and a passion for the traditional sounds of the southwest. Susan has taught Songwriting at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston for almost 14 years, so her passion for songwriting extends into every walk of her life.
