Daily Dose: Susan Aquila – Why
New York City artist Susan Aquila is shaking up the world of Rock. She is the first electric violinist/singer to break through to the mainstream rock market in a big way. Her music blends metal, rock and punk and her incendiary electric violin solos are being heralded as: “… the hottest thing to hit rock since Van Halen recorded Eruption! She’s like the Jimi Hendrix of the electric violin and her vocal style is vibrant and dripping with soul. She combines the artistry of Blondie with the raw power of Janis!!”*
Susan is a double Grammy Nominee for Best New Artist and Best Rock Album of the year for her previous release “Broken Angel”, which propelled her into the top 5 in ReverbNation’s Artists Trending in the New York City Area, a position she held for six months.
She has performed and recorded the world over with the greatest icons of Rock, including: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Billy Joel, Beyonce, Brittney Spears, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Josh Groban, Roger Daltry, Steven Tyler, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Jay Z, Barry Manilow and a host of others.
In the past year, she has completed several national tours. Her onstage killer performances knocked out audiences from Maine to Florida and paired her with important Rock artists such as Lita Ford, Tantric and Soil. The excitement generated by her touring schedule is amping up the anticipation for her upcoming CD, Miss Conduct, which will debut in January, 2016 on Original Kitchen Records with music and lyrics by Rob Tomaro. This year also saw her Broadway debut and cast album for the original musical Amazing Grace.
