Susan Sheller's "On the Way To Here" is a soulful, story tellin' collection of songs that blur the fine lines between Folk, Rock and Country.
Provocative lyrics that could make Johnny Cash blush, a charismatic God given voice that would make Janis Joplin smile and a musical landscape that evokes the soul of the 70's folk-rock scene as well as modern music today.
Produced by Dave Darling,(Boxing Ghandis, Meredith Brooks, Elvis Costello, 1958 w/Nikki Sixx) the album features guitar player Mark Karan ( The Other Ones, Rembrandts, Puddleduck) on "Memphis Radio", Bass player Taras Parudaniuk (Dwight Yokham) on "Yes I Do" co-written with Hammond B-3 player and long time friend Arlan Schierbaum who played piano on "The way to Home" The album also features Stevie Gurr on " What If I Stop Believing" playing harmonica.
"It was a very spontaneous record, I'm glad everyone involved got a chance to play." says Susan of the whole experience.
A handful of self-enlisted friends including actor Daniel Stern and A&M record executive Al Cafaro lent a helping hand.
"It started with a couple of demos and suddenly the sky opened and everyone stepped in to help me out some of them I'd never met before!" Susan said.
The Title track of the CD is appearing in the Lifetime cable network show: Beyond Chance, hosted by Melissa Etheridge and track 3 " Chains Where Wings Used to Be" is being used in the film Fashionably L.A.
"These are songs from my life and my dreams"
