Susan Clark was born and grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana, but has lived in the Albuquerque, NM area for the past 20 years. It is difficult to say who here musical influences were as her music is not easily pigeon-holed. She writes songs in whatever style works best for the particular tune. He music spans the genres of american folk, jazz, blues, and when called for a little latin rhythm. You truly need to hear her music to appreciate its breadth.
