Susan Hickman's Debut Country CD Set For US release, July 20

Susan Hickman's Debut Country CD Set For U.S. Release July 20

Includes Songs By Brett James, Mila Mason, Bobby Pinson, Gregg Allman

Nashville, TN (June 3, 2010) -- Susan Hickman's debut Country CD, SUSAN HICKMAN (4L Clover) is set for U.S. release on July 20. The disc, released overseas in December 2009, has already garnered quite a bit of attention for this Texas newcomer. She's enjoyed five international charting singles ("Sunday Paper," "Wrapped Up In Me," "Friday At The Latest," "You Just Missed This Train," "Whipping Post") and her current U.S. single release, "Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over" (Bobby Pinson/Melissa Pierce) is showing movement on both the European and stateside charts. "We wanted to develop a buzz about the music before we released the CD over here," says Susan from her Houston-area home. "Now that we have that, things are moving forward very quickly," she adds.

The groundswell includes a tour of Germany, Holland and Switzerland in March; inclusion on the CMA Close Up Who New To Watch In 2010 list; a 2500 mile-long U.S. country radio promotion tour, and her first CMA Music Fest appearance next week. In July, Hickman returns to Europe to perform at the prestigious 23rd Annual Country Rendez-Vous Festival in Craponne-sur-Arzon, France.
That's quite a bit of activity for an "indie" artist, but Susan is used to being the "exception" rather than the "rule." One listen to her new self-titled CD proves that Hickman is truly one of a kind. Her gritty yet glorious voice shows influences ranging from Miranda Lambert to Janis Joplin, and she shines on this Doug Deforest production (Todd Fritsch, Doug Spartz, Jonathan Edwards). Top-notch Nashville tunesmiths (Brett James, Mila Mason, Bobby Pinson and others) brought their best songs to the table, and Hickman's able interpretations hit the mark every time. Highlights include: "Red," a dark tale of jealousy and rage; the two-steppin' fun-loving, "Wrapped Up In Me" and the poignant ballads, "Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over" and "One Of Those Who Make It Up There." Closing the disc is Hickman's soulful take on Gregg Allman's classic southern rocker, "Whipping Post."
SUSAN HICKMAN can be purchased at iTunes, CDBaby and all major e-tailers.
