Susan Cunniff & Paul Mageau have been performing in the Greater Boston area since they first met in 2000. Paul learned to play guitar when he was ten years old and has played all styles including rock, funk, pop, jazz and blues. His versatile style, influenced by Tommy Emmanuel, James Taylor, Pierre Bensusan, & Tuck Andress, ranges from rhythmic to richly melodic. Both his original compositions and his arrangements of acoustic jazz, contemporary folk and blues ballads blend beautifully with Susan's warm, silky, alto voice.
Susan has a sweet, rich tone and an emotive vocal style which draws from her musical influences: Eva Cassidy, Diana Krall, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, and Barbara Streisand. Her voice could be described as a cross between Eva Cassidy, Linda Ronstadt and Anne Murray/Karen Carpenter. Together they may remind you of Tuck & Patti, or Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Pass.
