Passion, drive, and great writing – these adjectives define the music and life of Susan Cattaneo. Growing up on a farm in New Jersey but spending her summers on an Arizona ranch, Susan moved easily between the energy and electricity of the East Coast and the wide open spaces and campfire stories of the West. Susan found her place in the musical world at an early age, singing six-part harmony with her family around the dinner table. After stints in bands in college, she spent a year in Italy, where she studied Italian and performed a mix of standards and traditional Roman songs in various piano bars in Rome. Upon her return to the States, she began a dual career in New York City. By day, Susan was a television writer/producer, earning an Emmy nomination and NY State Broadcasters Award.
