Pie's "Time", with Pozo Seco Singers, when she was called Susan Taylor, hit #1 in LA, Chicago, and Boston! Three albums followed on Columbia, 1 on Certron Records and then a solo album on JMI Records. Her first Taylor Pie release was, “Long Ride Home” which front paged on CDBaby, followed by “Jubal”. Then came PuffBunny Records “So Little Has Changed”, "Live at Hondo's", and re-release of the JMI album, "Taylor Pie aka Susan Taylor Finally Getting Home."
Artists Bette Midler, Tanya Tucker; Mickey Gilley; The Forester Sisters; Terri Hendrix; Don Williams; Valerie Smith; Lewis Family; The Tuttles with A.J; Cluster Pluckers and more have recorded her songs. "Just Like Angels", was nominated for the gospel Dove Award, and "Full Grown Fool" gave Mickey Gilley a top 20.
Pie's songs can be heard on Americana/Folk Pop satellite, internet and public radio stations and her current cd, "Taylor Pie aka Susan Taylor Finally Getting Home" has become her top seller. Les Marcott's story @ http://www.scene4.com/archivesqv6/dec-2012/1212/lesmarcott1212.html, points out that Pie was Americana before there was a name for it.
2015 is looking great with an upcoming Finger Lake area tour in June where she'll be songswarming with Steve Piper on Rochester's public radio show, Open Tunings hosted by Scott Regan. She'll also join Jim Clare songpoet historian from Canadaigua for some musical evenings.
