“When you hit the play button on A Word Child by Susan Kane there is a bit of a snaky guitar lead into her warm, enveloping voice for the song, Around The Bend, one of the seven songs she wrote for this disc. There are two songs written by the Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia; and one each by Stephen Ray Kirkman and Rich Deans, and then B. Gregory Palitz composed the music for Donal Og which is a poem written by Lady Gregory. The songs have a cohesive feel to them and range from warm folk, to bluesy in feel to twangy, to haunting, all within that mode that is called Americana. Ms Kane is a skilled songwriter and her songs remind the listener that there are writers who present their thoughts in a cohesive linear manner, so that the listener doesn't have to search for hidden meanings, a pleasant reprieve from some of the writers who use seven veils for their words and then there are all these subtexts. This disc was recorded mostly in Austin, Texas, and a few cuts at Woody's House in Croton,”

“Susan Kane hails from the city of New York and has been gathering plaudits and five star reviews for her perceptive and soulful songs. Not for nothing is A Word Child one of the early contenders for one of the best albums of 2013.”

“Susan Kane is the real thing. Highway Bouquet. is chock-full of great songs and great singing. Kane’s irresistible voice - you can live in it for days-[combines] with big hooks lush, anthemic “Ring the Bells”… If only other songwriters would offer this kind of quality.”
