Album Notes
Susannah is one of those artists that doesn't come along too often. (Her) voice is warm and charming in the vein of such artists as Dido and Lisa Loeb, with the meaningful songwriting of artists like Emmylou Harris. Fans of intelligent rock with a touch of pop will find this release very enjoyable...she sings with a grace and ease that is rarely seen...writing songs that are too good to be called pop music. Fans of ethereal rock that is fun & light while firmly based in reality will enjoy this CD.

(November's "Featured Artist")

This disc is like a breath of fresh air -- the bright, clear voice of Susannah Blinkoff, though she can make it sexy and sultry in a heartbeat, the stellar playing by a great band, and just some great, overall grooving music...She sounds like a bright beacon on the musical horizon. A beautiful disc from start to finish.


Camp actually Susannah Blinkoff, a talented vocalist with a penchant for poignant lyrics and stellar backing musicianship to bring it home to the heart. This woman has a tremendous voice...the music is a polished brand of rock and pop with interesting alternative twists and turns. Sometimes it sounds like something you would hear blasting out of the speakers at an all night dance club and then again, something you would hear up and down your radio dial... the perfect package as far as I am concerned.


I really enjoyed the sometimes jazzy "Sade" style of Susannah's vocal phrasing, which is superb by the way, and also catchy and flavored with an intimacy that's a hook on it's own. A combination of Latin rhythms and techno-synth stylings blend well with the many diverse sounds on each track. Very creative production! Although a a bit Norah Jones-ey with more vocal energy, the entire CD is lyrically rich and flourishing with originality.


A very charming CD by Susannah Blinkoff has really brightened the last day of 2004. This is a mostly uptempo pop record and Blinkoff's all-star band really makes this album sparkle. As far as Susannah goes, imagine a slightly more mature Olivia Newton-John meeting a slightly breathy Suzanne Vega...She has a very strong sense of songwriting and it shines through out this CD. And just about any song would do well on the radio if given half the chance.....a smart, well crafted effort here. Recommended!


With a mysterious, semi-sultry vibe, this New York native sounds reminiscent of Lisa Loeb, Leah Morgan, Delirium or Frou Frou. Susannah Blinkoff, the female vixen with the sweet, sexy voice leads the way throughout the album that contains an industrial, jazzy sound. Blinkoff is a vivid songwriter...This is a great album...low-key and chill with enough meaning in the song lyrics to hold intellectual interest.

CAMP SUSANNAH is singer-songwriter Susannah Blinkoff's band and features musicians David Sutton (Liz Phair, Tracy Chapman), John Ballinger (Rufus Wainwright), Scott Breadman (Macy Gray), Darren Embry (Jonatha Brook), and Ray McNamara (E of the Eels).

Born and raised in New York City, Susannah is a second-generation singer-songwriter. Her mother Carol Hall recorded two albums for Elektra Records between 1970-73, was the opening act for Kris Kristofferson, Loggins & Messina and Don McLean (on his "American Pie" tour) and is best known as the composer/lyricist of the long-running Broadway hit THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS.

Susannah began singing professionally off-Broadway and in clubs when she was in eighth grade. First an actress, she appeared in TV movies and sitcoms and in numerous plays in Los Angeles and New York. She made her Broadway debut in THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE GOES PUBLIC and is featured on the show's cast album recording. She then became a published playwright and a screenwriter, co-writing the film BELLYFRUIT which premiered at the 1999 L. A. Independent Film Festival and ran on Showtime. For that film, Susannah also wrote and produced the opening title theme song "Bellyfruit" with record producer Stephen Bray (Madonna, Meredith Brooks).
She currently has a kids' adventure script being developed for television and is in the process of writing a movie musical.

Susannah has performed her music in Galway, Ireland, New York City and in Los Angeles, where she appears regularly as a soloist and with her band. CAMP SUSANNAH's new CD "Happy Today" is the band's first full-length album.

John Bowman

Enjoyed this album so much i've almost worn it out.
I'd listened to the snippets on the web-site,but the complete album is truely amazing.Susannah's vocals compliment the arrangements entirely.Its difficult,or rather,enlightening that i can't/won't put the music into a convenient catagory.Different tracks create different moods,but are joined together by this womans great vocals. Unfortunately the album is not easily available in London,but we're working to change that!!
Can't wait for the second album,keep up the good work. And hello from eeryone in the U.K.

The music here at Camp Susannah is great--just don't eat the beans!
I've reached that point in my life where I don't tend to have much interest in new music: it's all been done and I'd rather be listening to the Doors anyway. However, I'm happy to say that this is a great album. Left repeating in the CD player for hours, Camp Susannah never stops making me feel good, and that's something I can really appreciate!

This album grew on me very quickly. Thanks to a nice review in, I paid a visit to the Camp Susannah site and immediately bough tthe album. Sexy and sultry are the perfect adjectives to describe the vocals and vibe, especially on Couldja Wouldja. My favorite track is Too Small. Nice hooks and melodies. Susannah even took the time to send a nice 'thank you'. Well Susannah, you're more than welcome. I'm looking forward to the next CD.

Strong, diverse debut!
Susannah writes clever lyrics layered over a musical style that is mainly pop but dabbles in the ethereal and jazz. Her arrangements are mostly up-tempo tunes utilizing a variety of textures, tones and moods. Susannah has a crisp, versatile vocal style ranging from sexy to playful. This twelve-track collection has plenty of captivating rhythms, solid musicianship and witty, well-executed songs. 'way OK (remix)' starts off with a sort of spacey vibe before the hang drum and programming speeds up the pace. The song returns to the original tempo and than kicks up again as Susannah's rich vocals round out the mix. It is followed by the title track with its catchy beat that is tastefully contrasted with slightly somber keyboards and winds. Susannah uses an array of vocal techniques to give the song textures of light and darkness, adding to the theme of rising above negative circumstances and being "happy today". 'Too Small' flows on a mid-tempo beat, accented by keys, the acoustic guitar and more stellar singing from Susannah. Happy Today is a strong, diverse debut for the multi-talented Susannah and her camp! Have fun!

Linda Murray

It is wonderful on many levels.
I love this CD! I can enjoy it while I am working, but even better, I can be still amd really listen to it and appreciate it on a higher level.


Susannah's music is her shining spotlight with its sexy and sultry voices that are overlaid by exotic and lush orchestrations in a pop-riddled package measured in downtempo abstractness.

Andrew Piper

Amazing, groovy and beautiful
This is a wonderful cd. Perfect for afterwork or Sunday mornings. Susannah has a soulful voice.
