“Enchanting” FATEA Magazine
Lancashire based singer songwriter Susie Jones releases her second full length album, Shake Away the Devil, on Rubi Records. The album sees a departure from her acoustic folk beginnings and brings forward a heavier, lush and full textured sound which for the first time features all self-penned songs. Recorded over 12 months it is the result of a personal healing process of an artist coming of age.
The new record sees her back working with old faces; engineered by her bassist Dave Parker and Gary Hall (Cathryn Craig, Red Moon Joe) and features Mark Whiteside (Evil Blizzard) on drums. It also welcomes the arrival of new faces including Guitarist Matt Wells (Michael Chapman, Nat Birchall, and Greg Spero) and Andrew Glassford who mixed and mastered the record. The album was produced by long-time collaborator Rob Kentell at Sunnybank Studios and the Voodoo Rooms.
At its heart this album presents a writer at her most exposed and honest and singer whose elegant and distinctive voice touches the soul of the listener.
