Hi Friends, Reaching out to say we are still working hard at continuing to raise money to help finish recording my newest Susan Angeletti Soul Is Where It's At CD. But I cannot do it without your help. We are so close to finishing but I can't put it out till the Engineer is paid so he can continue his work in the Studio editing and mixing tracks till they are Radio ready Quality. We have Saxophone/ Horn arrangements from Joe Nerney that need to be mixed in. There is quite a few more hours of work to do still. Harmonies still to be added. Won't you consider helping? I want to get this new music to you.
We have done a sweet cover of Smokey Robinson's You Really Got A Hold on Me complete with Horns and backing vocals! There is a recording of an Etta James Gem and much more! Soul is where it's At!
Great Vocals young lady! Let's do this again real soon! - B B King
Susan is a sterling Vocalist and a ballsy Blues Chick! "- Ian Anderson
Here is a little musical life history...
Thanku so much for stopping by. My name is Susan Angeletti and I'm known as a fiery and emotive, often powerful soul- blues /roots Singer and live performer and Songwriter. I have had the honor to open for and share stages with many of my musical hero's including: B.B. King,Johnny Winter, Ian Anderson( Jethro Tull), Wilson Pickett, Tommy Castro, Luther Guitar Jr. Johnson ( Muddy Waters), John Hammond Jr., Michael Burkes, Dicky Betts, James Cotton, Duke Robbilard. Sam Andrew ( Janis Joplin), The Blind Boys of Alabama, George Thorogood, Charles Neville and others.
Making music is my lifeline, its what makes me tick. I am currently making a brand new Susan Angeletti Soul CD right now in the Recording Studio and am so happy about being back in the Studio! It's the best feeling.
I have several Susan Angeletti Cd's released independently including my last CD : "Susan Angeletti, Wisdom". Susan Angeletti Bittersweet ( produced by Tom Hambridge) ; and Susan Angeletti, Things You Throw Away( Produced by John Sheldon) which all continue to receive airplay in the US and in Europe.
Most recently Susan Angeletti music has been featured on the Blues Hunter's:ThatBlues Show in the UK and on several wonderful programs on Blues@ RockRadioUK,! On The terrific Magnuson Blues Show w John Wooler from Seattle. Also on Rock and Blues Down Under w Irene B in Australia, On "Howlin The Blues" w James Nagel outta Houston Texas and. many more!Im so thankful for this support from my Blues n Roots music community!
One of my more well known CDs is a rootsy Rockin one : "Susan Angeletti Bittersweet" and was recorded some years ago at The Sound Emporium in Nashville Tenn., and produced by Grammy Award Winner and Drummer and Producer Tom Hambridge.
"Blessed with a voice that burns like red hot coals Susan's Voice soars with a Mick meets Janis attitude, no American Idol gymnastics here, just heart break pure and simple".

I have started a Go Fund Me Campaign to help with covering some of the costs of Recording our brand new Susan Angeletti Soul Cd in Western, Massachusetts at Shoe String Recording Studio in Belchertown, Mass withtalented Engineers Mark Cohen and Rusty Annis. ( Photo above is Rusty Annis on left and guitarist John Sheldon on the right).
This new Susan Angeletti Soul Cd reunites me with the many talents of roots guitarist John Sheldon who has played w Van Morrison, Linda Ronstadt and more.
John Sheldon produced my bluesy and soulful debut CD "Susan Angeletti, Things You Throw Away". Guitarist John Sheldon and I toured w Bluesman Johnny Winter on the East and West Coasts on the strength of our live Shows together and from the reviews of this 1st Susan Angeletti CD. A thrilling time indeed!!
The new Susan Angeletti CD/project "Soul Is Where Its At" is a real labor of love for me this time especially because the focus is on Soul & Motown & Blues Music.⭐ The best music on earth. It's my favorite music.
I've always wanted to make a CD of classic Songs that I love to sing by Artists that I admire and that's just what this CD is!
We are making lots of progress on the new Cd. Pianist and Organist Kevin Bias has come in and cut some wonderful parts on several songs. Particularly bringing to life a really classic and beautiful Smokey Robinson Track and more!! I can't give it all away lol !
Talented Harmony Singer Jami-d has come in and lent her very lovely and soulful voice to some of the new Susan Angeletti Tracks. Sounding so sweet!!
Blues n R n B Gospel Queen Singer Reneé Austin is going to be coming in also and adding harmonies on a couple tracks too. So looking forward to that too!
After 3 years of starting to record this newest Susan Angeletti Cd myself and pay for what I could myself slowly over this last 3 year period, I finally came to the realization I could not afford to finish the CD all on my own. After much encouragement from friends in the music business I have started a Gofundme Campaign ❤with much positive encouragement from friends in the blues and roots music world in U.S. and UK.
Being a Singer is very rewarding in the heart, being able to make music, seeing people moved from a strong and emotional live performance. I get such an incredible feeling being able to sing and play with great players. There is nothing like it. I believe in the power of music to lift peoples spirits. I am so passionate about Singing and making music I can't live without doing it. I Would be forever so grateful if you would consider donating to the "Susan Angeletti Soul Is Where Its At" CD! Go Fund Me Campaign! I've been a busy singing Soul bee in the Studio and I'm ready to go do more Singing with your help! ❤
Here are a list of Recording Costs that your donations will go directly to with money raised by this Campaign:
$2500 1. Paying for Recording and mixing the new Susan Angeletti Soul Is Where Its at Cd!! That is the biggest expense and most time consuming part of making the cd. Especially paying the Engineers and Players/ Musicians.
3. ($500)Mastering the CD is a separate very important step after recording and mixing.
$1,300.00 Physical Copies of the CD /Art design/ Cover/ Booklet Layout Cost of the pressing of actual # of the CDs most likely 500 copies. So my Cd is ready for pre orders, radio and selling at Live Shows too!! ⭐
$1,000 ( Aprox)CD Promotional costs: get the CD heard and reviewed out there amongst all the other new Cd's comin out!! Radio Promo.
So that's where YOU all come in to help. It truly takes a Village these days.
I am so excited about making this new Susan Angeletti Soul Is Where Its At CD and as I'm sure you can tell I truly love this Soul music and want to bring you my versions of some beautiful classic songs. Including some Smokey Robinson, Anne Peebles and the fabulous Etta James and more!
John Sheldon who produced my 1st CD Susan Angeletti, Things You Throw Away and he toured w me on the East and West Coasts w Johnny Winter has written many wonderful songs that I've recorded including Bittersweet, Things You Throw Away, Too Far, Into The Flame, Rueban's Train, Stick Around and more. I'm proud to have John back in the Studio playing guitar on these classic songs by folks like Smokey Robinson and more with me. John is a very talented guitarist and a caring kindred spirit. He is the real deal. Hope you will join us and consider contributing what you can. You can find Johns music at www.johnsheldon.com
