Susan is a sterling Vocalist and a ballsy Blues Chick! "- Ian Anderson

 Hello friends,

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 5 Susan Angeletti Cd's released independently including my last CD :
"Susan Angeletti, Wisdom". All original songs and 1 cover. 
The Wisdom cd continues to receive airplay now in the US and in Europe. 36028756_1548524946508173_r.jpeg 

 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".
- Art Tipaldi 

 Now we are recording the brand new Susan Angeletti Soul Cd in Western, Massachusetts at Shoe String Recording Studio in Belchertown, Mass with36028756_1549508979422734_r.jpeg talented Engineer Mark Cohen.
This new 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!! 

   This 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.  " 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! 


  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. 

 I was also unfortunately hit by a drunk driver in 2010 at a very high rate of speed in my SUV. I was at a stop light. The person who hit me was going close to 65 to 70 miles an hour and did not see me and didn't slow down till it was too late.  This car accident caused me some serious physical problems, including herniated discs, a Post Concussive Disorder diagnosis, severe pain to top and back of my head and back of my neck. Pain I still live with now.  The car accident trauma re- aggravated and compounded a PTSD condition and anxiety issues I already had from a previous trauma that happened to me in my younger years. I am a survivor and a go getter though so I am pushin on here no matter what. I stay motivated and focused and look to the future.  But these issues has made it more challenging for me and so here I am here on Gofundme ❤with positive encouragement from friends in the music blues and roots music world in U.S. and in the 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! ❤
