ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Connecticut-based singer/songwriter Sue Menhart taps a deeper, more soulful vein on her third studio effort released under New London, Connecticut's Good Sponge Records.

Forever, a soul-infused five-song EP, is a loosely knit conceptual record that follows the course of a single romantic relationship from ‘love at first sight’ to its eventual demise.

Working with world renowned multi-instrumentalist/producer Ron Zabrocki, (Mariah Carey), Menhart cast off her well-known blues-rock diva persona for the Forever sessions and focused on writing stirring vocal melodies over pristine, jazz-influenced chord progressions.

What arises is a deeper, soul–drenched record that sounds at once fresh and familiar: Fusing together Etta James, Susan Tedeschi and Alicia Keys and the songwriting stylings of Brian McKnight and Babyface, Forever emerges as a bold new direction for Menhart.

Backing Menhart on Forever are long-time companions Kevin Clark on drums, Dave Foret on bass, and Zabrocki on guitar and keys. Forever is Menhart's third release following Gypsy Soul (2009) and Torn (2008), both recorded with the Sue Menhart Band.

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sue Menhart was born in St. Louis, Missouri but now calls Connecticut her home. A charismatic live performer, she stages 70 shows a year throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Georgia, and South Carolina.

"One of the absolute finest blues-rock bands in the entire region." - The Day paper
"Menhart's powerhouse voice is matched only by her songwriting and riveting stage presence." - The Day paper
“All-original, get-off-your-barstool-and-boogie blues-and-soul from one of Connecticut’s finest female vocalists and her amazing 'million man' band." - New Haven Register
"One key element that I picked up on while listening was Menhart’s powerful vocals. Menhart sings in a very gruff-style manner that gives her vocal performance a rough/rugged edge. With all that harshness backed behind her pipes, she also digs deep and finds her soulful spirit. The connection between Sue’s rocker side and emotive side has significant relevance here." - Skope Magazine
“Menhart has an increasingly high profile, with a reputation for impassioned tunes and a cyclonic voice that summon echoes of Susan Tedeschi, Janis Joplin and Lucinda Williams.” - The Day paper
