Susan Graham White

Susan Graham White has just completed finishing touches on an extraordinary new album, ‘Lost Art’, with an impressive range of songs that represent the best of her ever-evolving talent and devotion to meticulous song craft.

A two-time Washington Area Music Association winner for Songwriter of the Year, former member of Hazlewood (with Grace Griffith) and three CDs into a solo career, Susan Graham White is respected and recognized by songwriters and musicians alike. She co-wrote songs with the likes of Tom Paxton, and shared the stage with DC’s most respected studio and touring musicians.

But Susan Graham White also has an equally successful career as an equestrian rider, trainer and judge, which she manages from her 25 acre farm in Southern Maryland. Susan’s two-fold path dates back to her early years, when she juggled songwriting with her love of horses and equestrian competition focused on Dressage.

Even though her focus was in the equestrian world, she won several songwriting contests and two prestigious Maryland Governor awards for songwriting and vocal excellence. These and her solo CDs led to prestigious performances in the DC area at Wolf Trap, The Birchmere, and The Kennedy Center. She also performed at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, the Philadelphia Folk Festival and at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Café during that time. By 1992, songwriter Christine Lavin picked Susan’s first solo album, ‘Rescue’, as the “Best Independent Release” of the year.

Susan followed ‘Rescue’ with two more albums over the 1990's, which led to distribution, publishing, and increased industry attention.

The songwriting never stopped, but for a long period, Susan chose to focus on her increasingly successful equestrian career, over the relentless demands on any songwriter trying to gain attention within the music industry. She loved the music and the musicians, but the touring took her away from her farm and her horses.

As the years passed, Susan’s songwriting evolved and her perspective matured. She wasn’t hiding – she was just busy.

However, a serious injury in 2016 gave her a reason to reassess her catalog of unreleased songs, just as a serendipitous phone call from friend, Producer/Singer-Songwriter Dusty Rose, invited her back into the studio. As her producer, Dusty brought to the project such seasoned musicians as Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin Carpenter), Steuart Smith (The Eagles), Buddy Speir, Andy Hamburger, Charlie Barnett (Movie and Documentary composer/arranger), Mary Ann Redmond (Award winning vocalist), The Duke Ellington School Of The Arts Choir, among other notables.

What started as one session evolved into a CD of new gems, where Susan’s artistry and talent shine brighter than ever.
