  • Description

    Short stories deliver brief but indelible journeys. A single mouthful of sublime textures, or a window cracked -- fresh and sparkling images peeking through. Short Stories is also the title of Oh Susanna's latest release, an intimate series of portraits and journeys that echo the haunting sound of her debut EP.

    The album is a dramatic and compelling collection of songs inspired by both the lives of people in Oh Susanna's family and by those recorded in 20th Century American writing. It shares personal fables of heroes and anti-heroes as if through the lens of a documentary film. This release will seduce new listeners and reward the returning.

    For those who have travelled with her from one album touchstone to the next, there is both continuity and surprise. Literary and cinematic as much as musical, there is a natural beauty that both entertains and gives the listener room to roam.
