Iconic singer/songwriter/musician SUSANNA HOFFS has a special holiday treat for music lovers, FROM ME TO YOU, a three-song EP of some of her favorite 1960’s gems. A “labor of love” in her words, the EP features SUSANNA’s interpretations of, The Jaynetts’ “Sally Go ‘Round The Roses,” The Beatles’ “All I’ve Got to Do” and The Zombies’ “This Will Be Our Year.”
“It was a pure pleasure to record songs that I adore and have dreamed of singing for years,” SUSANNA says. Regarding the song selections, she says, “It’s exciting to be able to share some of my more obscure favorites. I think of this EP as kind of like a mix-tape that I’d give to a friend, except I decided to actually record the songs myself.”
FROM ME TO YOU follows SUSANNA’s critically acclaimed solo album SOMEDAY, released this past summer on her own label Baroque Folk, distributed by Welk Music Group. Reviewers were effusive in their praise for the record. As American Songwriter noted, “The honey-voiced songbird delivers a solid album with a feel-good vibe, which sounds authentic in its union of 1960s simplicity and 2012 sophistication (à la Dusty Springfield meets Adele). … This is easily and undeniably Hoffs’ most definitive musical statement to date.”
Both FROM ME TO YOU and SOMEDAY were produced and orchestrated by the revered Mitchell Froom.
SUSANNA, who’s just wrapped up the first phase of her SOMEDAY tour, is excited about continuing to perform and make music videos in support of the record. She is also thrilled about the much-anticipated release of Under the Covers Volume 3 (the ’80s) with pop powerhouse Matthew Sweet in 2013.
“For me, the end of the year is a time to reflect on all the things that I am grateful for,” SUSANNA says. “This year, I’m especially thankful for the opportunity to make music for the pure joy of it, and to be able to connect with all the people who have given me so much support over the years. For that, I am truly grateful.”
