NO HISTORY OF PREVENTION is the stunning new release from Austin singer-songwriter Susanne Abbott. Synthesizing elements of contemporary folk, pop, and Americana, this original, full length debut is an exquisite showcase of remarkable song craft delivered with an impeccable phrasing and vocal power that fans of Susanne Abbott have come to know and expect.

From the hypnotic opener, "On My Head", to the gorgeously plaintive “Jacqueline”, to the ambient, lingering beauty of "Johnson City", to the infectious pop choruses of “Spring”, this record bursts with color and imagery and is a staggering portrait of souls lost and found.

Austin Chronicle - June 12, 2009:
"Susanne Abbott's No History of Prevention follows the lush, languorous direction of Sarah MacLachlan and Tori Amos by purveying a mannered neo-folkiness. "Jacqueline," "Johnson City," and the commanding "On My Head" also demonstrate a dramatic flair that suggests Abbott is a powerhouse performer live."
- Margaret Moser

WOW ! I can't even name the combination of female vocals I hear in your voice. How unique- the instrumentals are amazing - I can't wait to sit out by the pool by the firepit and share this with my friends and a bottle of wine! I will be ordering your tunes for sure - And Arnie Yanez is a genious on the cajon & percussion.... YOW_ ZA!

I'm addicted!
I started listening to Suzanne's CD last night and her voice and music are lingering in my head. I woke up this morning and transfered the tracks to my MP3 player. "Caroline, Caroline, Caroline.." is singing to me right now. I'm typing to its hypnotic beat right now. This is the kind of stuff I groove on. It reminds of all the great artists I hear on our local radio station KGSR. Smooth, soulful, powerful, and it goes well with work, too! Thanks Suzanne. What took you so long?!

Great Find!
I was browsing thru the top sellers and ran across No History for Prevention by Susanne Abbott. WOW. I listened to the clips and immediately bought it! She is such a powerhouse…her vocals are just amazing. I can tell St. Catherine is going to be my favorite. What a great find from a new female artist! Can’t wait to get it in the mail!
