With 6 albums under her belt, an active touring career throughout the U. S. and a string of accolades from the likes of The Washington Post, The Village Voice and The New Yorker, Susan Werner has become one of the defining artists of the folk music genre. Her songs effortlessly slide between folk, jazz and pop, and are delivered with a sassy wit and classic mid-western charm. Her album The Gospel Truth
explores the role of the Church in contemporary American life. Quite possibly the first ''agnostic gospel'' album, her new songs speak in a wide variety of voices, from faithful and traditional to the critical and even the unconvinced.
