ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Suzanne McDermott posseses one of the most assured and melifluous female voices on the contemporary folk scene. In a certain mood she sounds akin to the young Joan Baez. There's a great deal of pleasure in hearing McDermott's voice effortlessly sweep and swoop.

McDermott is one hundred percent original in her style and writing, which, in a genre of frequent copycats, is refreshing. She has penned some of the most remarkable songs of the past 50 years and ranks in the first echelon of songwriters. She is not timid about infusing her poetry with strong messages, sometimes political. "Goose Steppin'," as its title implies, is strongly pointed commentary on the current political scene. Listen carefully, because the songs have more than one level of meaning. There's a passion play going on in these dozen original songs that may sound superficially like love songs until you delve into her images and metaphors.

The Glory, her 5th album, was recorded in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, produced by Ankie Keultjes and features a fine array of Dutch musicians on baritone and tenor saxophone, percussion, bass, piano and bandonion It was released in Europe on CRS/Rounder Europe January 2003 and is available as US import through CDBaby.com

Earlier work that put Suzanne on the songwriting map include "The 3 Dreams of J. Robert Oppenheimer", "The California Sun", "When You Became My Child", "The Roswell Incident" and "Great Day."

Performing Songwriter Magazine included earlier albums in their "Top D.I.Y", Sing Out! Magazine calls Suzanne "a serious songwriter deserving of attention."

See links to earlier albums Ephemera, Souvenir and the Christmas album Out Under the Sky.

"McDermott possesses one of the most assured and mellifluous female voices on the contemporary folk scene. She’s also penned some of the most remarkable songs of the past 50 years, ranks in the first echelon of songwriters and is not timid about infusing her poetry with strong messages."

"Suzanne McDermott shines on her new CD, "The Glory". Her crystalline voice reminds me of Judy Collins, and her eye for detail and turns of phrase tell vivid, compelling stories. Intriguing, beautiful work, and highly recommended."

Marilyn Rea Beyer, Music Director

WUMB Radio, UMass Boston
"We could all do well to study the human condition the way Suzanne McDermott does - with a critic’s eye and a poet’s heart. With a voice as clear as Sunday bells and a wry wit fit for a late-night coffee cabaret, Suzanne McDermott tells it straight, neither sacrificing art for truth, nor substituting beauty for passion. More than a pretty collection of songs, The Glory challenges and enlightens."
