Susan Rissman has been one of the principal female vocalists in Colorado Springs for more than 20 years. She’s toured the country as primary vocalist for “Tiny Barge and the Big Chill” numerous times and has played virtually every major (and minor) venue on the Colorado Springs music scene. She is currently the featured voice on Thursday nights at Ricos with John Wise and Tim Zahn. Her voice is one part ripping blues diva, one part broken princess, one part folk mistress and one part “Scat”, Queen of Springs Funk. Trying her hand at songwriting for the first time, she is writer or co-writer on 3 songs on the disc “Driving” and creative visionary on numerous others. Fans in Colorado Springs have waited many years for Susan’s voice to be featured on a disc. “Driving” gives her a place on the recorded road that she has so long deserved.
For the past four years, Thursday nights at Rico’s have been a standing room only affair. Locals flock to this hip neighborhood gathering place for a mix of New Orleans-style blues and jazz, standard jazz, and fresh takes on contemporary acoustic rock featuring Susan and some of Colorado Springs’ most accomplished music legends.
Susan is also hard at work creating her next album, which will be a blend of soulful covers and original works. She is looking forward to collaborating with new singer/songwriters and producers as well as her favorite team of skilled musicians and engineers to make this new work come to life.
