She has been hitting the pavement hard building a reputation as a consumate performer and a very exciting showman who always give 150% at her live shows. She especially incorporates: blues, soul & rock sounds into her distinct vocal style.
While busy paying her dues as a struggling blues singer, learning along the way, Susan never forgot her rock n roll roots..
SUSAN's Rock & Roll roots are heard on her recent "SUSAN ANGELETTI, WISDOM" CD. The Wisdom Cd covers a lot of musical ground highlighting SUSAN's powerful soulful voice, and ample songwriting skills. The Title track "Wisdom" a soaring rock ballad, along with 3 others songs: "Hypnotized","Got To Have You Baby" & "Eye To Eye ", were co-written with rocker guitarist BRUCE KORONA who also played guitars on the disc!
When you hear Susan wailing away on some ferocious high notes on the barroom boogie feel of the original blues rocker:" Got to Have You Baby",you are pulled right in! Tell ROBERT PLANT he has a female counter part here for sure!! Susan touring time w JOHNNY WINTER is evident in the sounds of this song which would surely make Johnny Winter proud with its stinging n drivin boogie woogie sound, with Susan's voice soaring over the top like a surfer!
Then there is the funky rocker "Hypnotized" which shows off the strength n range of SUSAN's powerful vocals, with the hard driving guitar by Korona nodding to the classic 70's rock guitar sounds of JOE PERRY..SUSAN's voice pulls you back to the 70's sounds of the hard rock vocals of ANN WILSON from the band HEART and 4 octave rock diva singer PAT BENATAR!! Both women being big influences on SUSAN's singing growing up at a very young age.
The new Wisdom Cd features: Paul Dawicki on drums, Bruce Korona on guitar, Paul Dabrowski on bass, Ted Wert on Hammond B-3 organ & Susan Angeletti all lead vocals n some background vocals.
