Come To A Fabulous Doubleheader To Kick Off Your Holiday Weekend!
Susan Cattaneo is one of Boston’s most respected songwriters. A powerful singer and sophisticated writer, Susan combines vivid storytelling with a modern songwriter’s spin. Respectful of tradition, but not bound by it, Susan blends rock, folk and blues with a healthy dose of country. Call it New England Americana with a twang.
Susan’s latest album, Haunted Heart was released in January 2014 to national acclaim. It was voted one of Alternate Root’s Top 100 Albums of the Year and won Album of the Year at the Limelight Music Awards.
This spring Susan performed as a finalist at the Philadelphia Songwriters Project and at the Wildflower Festival Songwriters contest. Over the past two years, she has also been a finalist or winner at some of the country’s most prestigious songwriting and music contests: Kerrville’s New Folk Contest, the International Acoustic Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards, the 5 Unsigned Only Song Contest, the USA Songwriting Competition, the Mountain Stage New Song Contest, and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest.
In addition to being a solo performing artist, Susan has been teaching songwriting at the Berklee College of Music for over ten years, and has also recently joined the Western Massachusetts trio The Boxcar Lilies.
In the New England area, Susan has won over audiences at venues such as Club Passim, the Shalin Liu Center, the Me & Thee Coffeehouse, Tupelo Music Hall, the South Shore Music Circus and the River Club Music Hall.
She has opened for or shared the stage with Bill Kirchen, David Wilcox, Rose Cousins, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ellis Paul, Paula Cole, David Wilcox, Amy Grant, Melissa Ferrick, and The Pousette-Dart Band.

“Cattaneo has been playing around Boston and its environs for a while, sometimes solo and sometimes with stellar players. She rocks with the best of them and also sings ballads so sweetly and lovingly that it can bring tears to the eyes of those listening” – No Depression
“Ultimately it’s rare to find an artist so willing to invest her psyche so fully into her songs, but the return on Cattaneo’s commitment also makes for a compelling set of songs.” – American Songwriter
“She’s able to blend gritty semi-confessional bluesy sounds with poetic conversational lyrics” – Austin Daze
“Her voice is somewhere between national treasure and weapon of mass destruction” – Daily Vault
Liz Frame wrote her first song at age nine, and has been performing her own brand of rootsy Americana music since her early teens. She spent her childhood listening to the artists her parents loved – Jimmie Rogers, The Weavers, B.B. King, Elvis Presley – to name just a few, absorbing their sounds and ultimately allowing them to influence her own.
At fourteen she picked up the guitar and has been hooked on the process of making music ever since. Backed live by her band, the Kickers, a group of talented friends whose raw, acoustic sound and sweet harmonies help to deliver her material with distinction. Liz Frame and The Kickers play regularly around Boston, northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, and are fast becoming a favorite of the area.
