Susan Werner composes skillful songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz and pop, all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm.
Known for her engaging and energetic live show, Susan reigns as one of the boldest and most creative forces on the acoustic music scene today. Dubbed by NPR as the “Empress of the Unexpected,” Susan’s album projects cover the genres of folk, rock, pop, gospel, blues and Americana. Her latest release, The Hayseed Project, pays tribute to American agriculture and to her Iowa farm roots, and lends her wry humor and passionate voice to subjects such as farmer’s markets, agrochemicals, climate change, drought, longing for a sense of place and the movement towards sustainable agriculture.
