"Sue Menhart has the finest female vocal performance on the bluesy 'Can't Feel the Rain.' Boy can she hit those high notes, and her tune eventually mellows and tapers off with the sultry sounds of a saxophone." - Sound Waves Magazine
"One of the absolute finest blues-rock bands in the entire region." - The Day paper
"Menhart's powerhouse voice is matched only by her songwriting and riveting stage presence." - The Day paper
“All-original, get-off-your-barstool-and-boogie blues-and-soul from one of Connecticut’s finest female vocalists and her amazing 'million man' band." - New Haven Register
"One key element that I picked up on while listening was Menhart’s powerful vocals. Menhart sings in a very gruff-style manner that gives her vocal performance a rough/rugged edge. With all that harshness backed behind her pipes, she also digs deep and finds her soulful spirit. The connection between Sue’s rocker side and emotive side has significant relevance here." - Skope Magazine
“Menhart has an increasingly high profile, with a reputation for impassioned tunes and a cyclonic voice that summon echoes of Susan Tedeschi, Janis Joplin and Lucinda Williams.” - The Day paper
Sue independently released the album “Torn” in 2008, the EP “Gypsy Soul” in 2009, and the solo EP "Forever" with producer and guitar player Ron Zabrocki in June 2011. Her latest single, "Can't Feel The Rain," was released in June 2015 in advance of her next full-length album - "Love Ain't Hard." Sue has drawn comparisons to Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Janis Joplin, Lucinda Williams, Diana Krall and Adele.
