 "Pure talent and honest emotion!  Susie Summers is one of the most gifted songwriters and performers that Charleston, South Carolina has ever produced. These are very strong words but are unchallenged by those who are familiar with the writings and performances of Susie Summers. At festivals, events, clubs and  coffee houses around Charleston, locals and tourists alike have been stopped in their tracks at the power and raw emotion of her performances. Most of them were bowled over by a Melissa Etheridge or Janis Joplin tune or the expressiveness of one her wonderful originals. But because Susie was never an outstanding promoter of her own songs, the crowds that gather to hear her today are only now beginning to see and hear the depth of her talents.


From her first nervous shows at the former "Soft Rock Café" to what is now a growing number of venues in three states, audiences are returning again and again. What they find in Susie's performances is what seems to be missing on the radio and in many live shows today . . . Pure talent and honest unassuming emotion.


Mention the name Susie Summers to denizens of Charleston's Night Club and music scene and she will be compared with the best in the field of blues, folk and jazz. Her strong vocal style and engaging stage presence have made her a favorite in appearances throughout the southeast.


Although born in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant across the harbor from historic Charleston, South Carolina, she grew up absorbing musical influences from all over the United States as the family moved from region to region following her fathers medical career.


Susie's early musical training was formal lessons on piano and cello, but at age eleven her brother gave her an old ukulele which she took to with enthusiasm. The interest in the ukulele soon gave way to the guitar and by her early teens she was writing and singing her own songs as well as developing an extensive repertoire of folk, pop and blues.


Her late teens found her in Kansas City where she studied guitar at the Music Conservatory while performing in the competitive rhythm and blues and folk clubs of the Kansas City Area. An entertainment paper in the area described her appearance at a local club as, "Gutsy rhythm and blues!".
