NEW Info about the Gathering and Check-In procedure
Based on audience feedback, we are re-organizing things a little bit.
You no longer need to check in with your ticket at the Summerour House before the concert. Tickets will be checked at the door to the Warsaw Church, beginning at 7:30. The concert still begins at 8pm. The Summerour House will be open, too, at 7pm, if you would like to take a tour of this beautiful Victorian farmhouse or simply set a spell and socialize before the concert. Light desserts, coffee, and tea will be available for a small donation.
About Susan Enan:
Susan Enan released her debut album 'Plainsong' in 2009. In 2006, while demoing songs for the record, Enan began receiving worldwide attention after her track "Bring On The Wonder", https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zb0x4_2xocY, with Sarah McLachlan on backup vocals, appeared on the second season of the Fox show “Bones”. The song was also featured on the shows soundtrack two years later. It took another 6 months to wrap up the record proper which features Enan's remix of "Bring on the Wonder" along with 9 other tracks. In June 2010 Sarah McLachlan recorded her own version of "Bring On The Wonder" for her seventh studio album Laws of Illusion. Susan is currently embarking on a worldwide house concert tour called "Bring On The Song".
Enan grew up in Cambridgeshire, England. After moving to Liverpool to study music, she began playing the local singer songwriter scene. It was during these years she discovered a love for film scores and the simple, yet intelligent, folk songs of Woody Guthrie.
'What I liked about Woody Guthrie was the reason he wrote and how that informed his writing style. It had to be simple so the political songs could be easily remembered for the sake of the cause, yet the songs where also very smart. I love that combination in art: simplicity that goes right to the soul but doesn't have to bypass the brain on the way.'
After leaving Liverpool she moved to Northern Ireland and continued to write and record a few small EP's released locally, but it was the Moonlight EP (2003) which began to get more attention internationally. It led to an opening slot on a three month US tour with Ohio based band 'Over the Rhine' which in turn led to a signing with Nettwerk Management and a move to New York in 2005. By this time, she had all the songs that would become Plainsong but finishing the record was still a way off.
'Yeah, what with one thing and another it did take time but there were always encouraging signs along the way, like the Bones show picking up 'Bring On The Wonder'. All those things really helped to keep the momentum going.'
The self-produced record was recorded in 5 different countries, much of it in Enan's small home studio in Brooklyn. It was finally released in July 2009 and features co-production from Alan Bezozi, musical appearances from Ashwin Sood (drums), Steve Schiltz (guitars), Graham Maby (bass), and vocal appearances from Declan O'Rouke and Sarah McLachlan. It was mixed in London by Alan Branch and mastered by Jon Astley.
Plainsong is now available both as a digital download and on CD from the online store at www.susanenan.com where Enan and her parents are mailing out the discs from Nashville and her home village in England.
What the critics say:
'Her forlorn, hyperromantic lyrics are what you'd expect from a girl who reads Shakespeare' -Rolling Stone
'A most beautiful album' - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
'NewYork-based English singer-songwriter Susan Enan is taking a novel approach to touring the world, performing in fans' houses. Such intimate settings will suit the songs of her self-released debut Plainsong, gently plucked from both her guitar and soul.' - Q Magazine
Plainsong is included in Paste Magazine's 'Eight Criminally Underrated Albums From 2009' list and listed as one the top 50 albums from 2009 at www.amiestreet.com.
