“Experience a solo acoustic set by this talented blues singer/songwriter who has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi.”

"Montville’s Sue Menhart gets discovered"

“Today, she has a worldwide fan base and a curriculum vitae that includes two solid albums of her own material, live television and radio appearances and clubs that ask her to come back and play repeatedly.”

“The connection between Sue’s rocker side and emotive side has significant relevance here.”

“This record is so quick and punchy; seems it’s over before it’s even begun!”

“Sue has such a quiet yet potent vocal delivery that really makes you stop and listen.”

"Menhart is a wonderful, natural singer, and the band is tight and equally robust."

“Call me an old soft romantic but this one brings goosebumps on the neck and a lump to the throat, brilliant lyrics and a soulful rendition that can't hide the true feelings. The sort of song a talent show winner would overdo the vibrato and overdo the dynamics where here with Sue's slow vibrato and quieter delivery makes for a much more emotional performance.”

“Menhart has an increasingly high profile, with a reputation for impassioned tunes and a cyclonic voice that summon echoes of Susan Tedeschi, Janis Joplin and Lucinda Williams.”

“Gypsy Soul - "Emotional filled lyrics, a catchy song in 'Coming Home' an excellent smooth sound."”

"Torn," her debut, a collection of big-throated blues-rock songs with shades of the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

“The formula for the Sue Menhart Band is a mix of folkish singer/songwriter lyrics paired with a rock sound. Think Jackson Browne meets Journey, or Bob Dylan meets Boston.”

“A totally original and distinctive voice! No cookie cutter chic singer here!”

““Just another Man" and "Dark Haired Man" ring tried and true as you listen to Sue reveal her soul in these songs. It gets right down to the center of who Sue is in Child of the Blues. That song is my fav on this cd.”

“Sue Menhart always knew she had a song in her – make that an album full of bluesy rock. In May, the Uncasville resident and her band produced and issued its first CD. “Torn” is Menhart’s debut collection of blues-rock songs, written and produced in the past seven months.”

“Corporate City. Wow..I mean..just..wow! Sue's voice takes on a sultrier, more serious color. A kind of rich, dark gray. Appropriate for assessing the contours of a modern Metropolis…”
