ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Performing Songwriter SusanJoy Grieco is like a breath of fresh air. Everything about her work is clear and true, from her reasonant vocal stylings to unique guitar/piano interpretations to her emotive storytelling songs. Real and humorous, SusanJoy takes her audience on a memorable journey.
Lovely melodies, ear-candy musical hooks, and one very natural performer ... SusanJoy Grieco live is simply an experience to behold. Or to hear on CD.
Excited by the thrill and ease of touching many hearts through songs, SusanJoy began recording a notebook full of original songs in 2003. The debut CD, titled TurnAround, was released in May 2005. It was mastered and recorded at the multi-Grammy Award winning Bennett Studios, in Englewood, NJ.
SusanJoy’s music is adventurous and eclectic. She describes it as Pop Rock. Her influences include Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, and on the other end of the spectrum, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, Burt Bacharach, Irving Berlin and the Gershwins. The list goes on and on.
Music is an active calling for SusanJoy. She sang before she talked, and began short story writing, songwriting, poetic writing, singing and performing at a very early age. “I write and perform because I am moved to. I must. It’s like the need to breathe or drink water. It’s natural, and it soothes.”
Audiences appreciate her performances, too. So it seems the soothing is a mutual thing.
And audiences adore her stories of how songs are born. People often ask SusanJoy, how do you write a song? Like, where does that come from!?
"Simply living life," she shrugs. "For example, the pop-rock crowd pleaser 'The Air' was inspired while appreciating my fantastic family and friends. Fans say this song feels like being at an outdoor U2 or Sheryl Crow concert. And the sassy sing-a-long song 'Loverboy' wrote itself after I saw the flirtations of some country stars in a Nashville coffeehouse. Listeners have called it a tongue-in-cheek Dixie Chicks style. Inspiration also comes from misbehaving pets. A noisy bird kicked-off the pleasing 'Fricasse Shuffle', reminiscent of the Paul Simon/Jimmy Buffet genre, complete with it's own dance steps. Or, eavesdropping on a lovers quarrel became the moody, jazzy composition, “He Said, She Said.” My discerning friends pick-up on the Dave’s True Story or Joni Mitchell vibe to this tune. To me, writing is my Meditation. And if songs can sooth my audience too, that is like goosebumps to me!"
Speaking of goosebumps, in 2002, SusanJoy traveled to the “Songwriters Meccas”, Nashville, and Memphis, Tennessee. It was a profound experience.
New Jersey-born SusanJoy's family lineage includes a long musical history. The family heard songs composed by her grandfather, and recounted stories as far back as The Golden Age of Vaudeville. “To this day, my Dad still annouces “Show biz doesn’t run in this family, it gallops!”

Giddy-up!

You'll Turn Around for SusanJoy
Weaving passion and joy with a sweet and soulful voice, excellent songwriting and top-notch production, SusanJoy more than lives up to her name. "Loverboy," "The Air," "The Bee Believes," and "Waiting" are standout tracks, but the entire work is a labor of love that you will be glad you added to your collection.

Yann GIRAUD (from France)

An awesome collection of beautifully-crafted songs.
This recording begins with "Loverboy" which is a traditional country song, traditional but amazing as SusanJoy Grieco is from NJ. Her song sounds just like a real Nashville recording. This does not mean that SusanJoy's music is just about imitation. The first song on the Cd is a perfect choice, which works like a trick. The following ones show that SusanJoy has much more in her pocket. "The Air" is the kind of song you want to hear on the morning to be sure you'll have a beautiful day. SusanJoy's voice is a blend of Emmilou Harris and Dolly Parton textures, but she's even better when she tries pop songs, as her style becomes much more original and personal. For example, the recording most beautiful song (in my opinion), "He Said, She Said", is a Carole King-like ballad, that seems to step out of the 70's female composers's golden era, you can also think of Judee Sill, Joni Mitchell, but beyond those influences, she's building a highly personal universe, and her voice fits perfectly to it. "The Bee Believes" is also an amazing song with a celtic feeling, but with a strong pop melody. And after the last song "Perhaps", you may want to listen to it again and again. Highly recommended.

Susan Joy has that sweet voice that takes you to another place
I just love Loverboy Oops! It's a light hearted fun song that propels the listener into a different time and space. If you dig deep into the album, you'll find He Said She Said that's shows you the other side. All the songs on this album are different and interesting....Well worth having this is album in your car carrying CD case!
