Biography

Susan Tedeschi
"I think it's a pivotal record for me - I like this one a lot,” Susan Tedeschi says of her new Verve Forecast release Back to the River. “I think it's really emotional, but it's not really a blues record. The blues is still in there, but there's a lot of other stuff too. I definitely put a lot into this one and worked really hard to put a lot ... Read more in Amazon's Susan Tedeschi Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

This reissue of the Boston favorite's 1995 debut clearly highlights her greatest strength: her voice. Susan Tedeschi has been singing since she was 4 years old, and it shows; her voice has the power and control that comes from long experience. If her version of "Hound Dog" doesn't blow the top off of Big Mama Thornton's original, it's still a strong effort, and she's just as good with her own material. The title track--penned by Adrienne Hayes, guitarist for Tedeschi's band--is especially good, as the slow tempo allows Tedeschi to stretch her pipes a bit. Unfortunately, even by the release of Just Won't Burn, Tedeschi's guitar hadn't caught up with her voice, and the discrepancy is even more obvious here--there's a spark, but it doesn't quite catch fire. Still, there's no question that her heart's in the right place, and if her guitar work continues to improve, there'll be no stopping her. --Genevieve Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars The makings of a superstar - Better Days!! 9 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought Just Won't Burn on a whim at a music store and fell in love with it the same day. I heard this woman named Susan Tedeschi with this remarkable bluesy voice that so reminded me of Bonnie Raitt. And who doesn't love Bonnie Raitt. But I discovered Susan Tedeschi is even better. Her voice has that Janis Joplin edge on tracks like It Hurt So Bad and Rock me Right.
I recently bought Better Days and love this album too though it's not quite as strong as Just Won't Burn. But that's a good thing cause we want our artists to improve with each album. That isn't to say Better Days isn't great. The title track is well written and well sung. It's an amazing ballad-like blues song. I also enjoy Love Never Treats Me Right and Locomotive. I feel the best track on this set, though, is Ain't Nobody's Business. It's pure blues and shows us just how much talent this lady has.
I recommend this to blues fans, Bonnie Raitt fans, Janis Joplin fans, and just fans of artist who really can sing. Susan Tedeschi is a superstar and should continue to get more recognition from the public especially with a bigger record label. She is currently writing and recording songs for her new album. I hope she takes her time. I saw improvement with Just Won't Burn from Better Days. I want to see improvement again. But it's difficult to improve on perfection!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tedeschi will be around for years to come 13 Mar 2000
By "saracen" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I feel strange about reviewing an album that's been in constant rotation on my stereo for years, but I realize that there are still a lot of people who haven't caught on to Susan Tedeschi's talent. When I first saw Tedeschi perform live, I got the same chill down my spine that I got when I initially heard other female singers who, at one time or another, have made the Boston-Cambridge area their musical home - Robin Lane, Aimee Mann, Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, Semenya McCord, Rebecca Parris, Laurie Sargent, and, yes, Bonnie Raitt. Whether it was their voice, their songwriting, their musicianship, their unique interpretations of old standards, or a combination of the above, each of them brought something new to the music world. With Tedeschi, it's that voice! Her guitar work may never become more than pedestrian (for some superb blues guitar, check out Deb Coleman), but to discount the beauty and strength of her voice because her guitar licks aren't there is comparable to dismissing the genius of a Van Gogh painting because his signature was a plain old "Vincent." This album is where it all began and it's a wonderful beginning to what is sure to be a long and rewarding musical career.

5.0 out of 5 stars This gal knows how to play the blues! 12 July 2002
By Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Ms. Tedeschi when she opened for B.B. King in his year 2000 tour. What a night! I happen to be a big fan of the blues, and when I heard those performers, I was more than impressed! But Ms. Tedeschi stood out from the rest, because she expresses such a great amount of talent. You can tell that she loves her work! She can really play the blues, and her voice is just the icing on the cake!
It's hard to say which song on this album is my favorite. It's like trying to decide which one of your children you love more. But I will say that her interpretation of "Hound Dog" is not one to be missed. I would also have to say that the instrumental work on "You're On My Hair" is great! Not to mention, she can play a mean slide guitar! (When you hear "Locomotive" you'll know what I mean). I recommend this album to anyone who has a deep respect for the blues, you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock On Momma 12 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what the complaining is about; all artists evolve and evolution means having the guts to get out in front of people while trying new things. I love Susan's sound and it's really good to hear a woman wailing the blues so melodically.
When I am having a bad-guitar day and feel like pulling a Pete Townsend all over my bedroom, I remember Jonny Lang's words (Frontline; winter 99), Susan, are you listening?..."Don't let anyone else but you tell you what's right....it's easy to let other people's comments influence you.....remember, you are the only person that matters." Thanks Jonny, you're a doll. Rock on momma!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Female Blues 13 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I got to see Susan long before any radio station exposed her. It was at a Blues festival and she played before Lonnie Brooks. The sad thing was after Susan played, Lonnie Brooks could hardly raise an applause. I don't think her CD's measure up to her live performances by any stretch of the imagination. But live, she is as powerful as any singer, pure, raw blues.
