Susan is known for her guitar playing and her incredible voice, blending R&B, Rock, and Gospel into a soulful combination, which she talks about with Maggie on this episode. Susan explains why right now is a particularly important time for the female voice to be heard and shares some of the silver linings that came out of the pandemic.
