Susan Cattaneo 'Little Big Sky' - Jersey Girl

As is becoming more common these days artists are releasing mini-albums/eps. These means you can maybe put out a couple of release in the period you might only release a single album. This gives you more opportunity to get reviews and to have something new to sell at gigs. With two previous albums under her belt this big voiced singer and writer. It credits Lorne Entress as executive producer and Jan Stolpe with production and engineering. They have gathered some top class players together that included Glen Duncan on fiddle and Tommy White on pedal steel which gives the music some country edge on a sound that is very contemporary and polished. The central focus is Cattaneo's voice which fills the songs with an authoritative presence. The songs as you might expect deal with the foibles of the human heart (A Place Called Love, Better Day the toughened, uptempo rockin' rootsy Spare Parts) and the self-explanatory Let The Music Deliver Me and the search for balance and place in Little Big Sky. Pennies On The Rail reminisces about growing up. The seven songs here are full of hooks, fine performances and not a little passion. Something that will have across the board appeal to those who like their Americana with some confidence, balls and intent. Little Big Sky is wide open for open minds and hearts.
