“Susan Werner, a clever songwriter and an engaging performer, brings literacy and wit back to popular song.” -The New Yorker

Susan Werner composes skillful songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz, and pop, all delivered with a sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. Throughout her expansive career, boundless versatility has emerged as a hallmark of Werner’s talent, and has proven to be a quintessential ingredient of her engrossing musical personae.

Known for her engaging and energetic live show, Werner continues her reign as one of the most bold and creative forces on the music scene today. Dubbed by NPR as the “Empress of the Unexpected,” Werner’s album projects cover the genres of folk, rock, pop, gospel, blues and Americana. Check out her website here.
