Acclaimed Retro Pop Artist Susan Barth Lands Exciting Compilation Track

Website: http://www.susanbarth.com/
“Retro-melodic pop with a sad side” is the poignant way pop artist Susan Barth depicts her acclaimed sound. Often described as Aimee Mann meets Abba meets The Beatles, Susan’s sound has captivated fans and critics worldwide, and she has earned many awards and media placements over the years as a result. Up next for Susan is the inclusion of one of her tracks on WiFi PR Group’s upcoming compilation, Indie Anthems Vol. 6.

Susan is musically influenced by a wide range of artists, including first and foremost, The Beatles. As the story goes, Susan heard “She Loves You” on the radio as a small child, and that planted the seed that would bud into her current music career. The instant, easy melodies and rich harmonies are what drew her to music from the beginning, and at about 12 years old, she began trying to write music on her own. She’s since written four albums that have done very well among her fans and critics, including This Thing, Romeo and the Beauty Queen (2001), Wonderland (2004) and Songs from the Suburbs (2009).

She also names a number of other artists as influences, such as Carol King, Aimee Mann, Rickie Lee Jones, The Cardigans, Tom Petty, the Eagles, Sheryl Crow and The Honeydogs. Lyrical inspirations include mostly observations and people-watching though she also draws from happiness, suffering, pain, social crises and interpersonal relationships to craft the songs that have earned her such acclaim. Through all these inspirations, influences, her musical abilities and career achievements, she says that her greatest accomplishment has been finding the perfect pop song within herself.

Susan’s music has won numerous awards and placements on radio shows, such as the UK’s Pulse Radio’s Top 10 for six months, including three weeks at No. 1. Her track “Almost Did It” made it onto NPR radio as a pick of the week. As for awards, her songs have landed in the finals in many songwriting contests, including the UK Songwriting Contest, Billboard Songwriting Contest and Unisong Song Contest. She was named runner-up for Songwriter of the Year in 2006 and 2007 by DIY, one of the most respected indie artist networks, which also chose “Wonderland” as the 2005 runner-up for Album of the Year. Susan has earned seven ASCAP Songwriting Merit Awards, among several others.

In addition to her awards, Susan has also enjoyed many media placements over the years. She signed a large portion of her catalog to major licensing houses in Los Angeles and Florida, and after only four days, she had a song on a primetime TV show. Soon after was a stream of placements that included several of her songs. Hit WB show Smallville used her track “Feel Like a Man” to underscore an action scene, and another placement was on the Sounds Like Café compilation CD for the 2009 holidays in Australia.

One of Susan’s songs will appear on WiFi PR Group’s upcoming compilation, Indie Anthems Vol. 6, a collection of international independent talent spanning a wide range of genres that WiFi wants to put on the radars of music lovers and industry tastemakers the world over. Set to be released at Toronto’s NXNE later this month, the digital mixtape will be handed out on 3,500 download cards to festival attendees and 1,500 more download copies will be made available on the Indie Anthems Bandcamp page.

Susan’s music is available on CD Baby, which includes major download companies like iTunes, Amazon and Rhapsody. Her music can also be streamed on SoundCloud and Pandora.
