BIOA singer, songwriter, international performing artist, multi-instrumentalist, and painter, Susan Erwin is an artist whose home is behind a piano. Susan's versatile voice, impressive skills as a mutli-instrumentalist, dynamic stage presence, and rare ability to make every person in the audience feel a part of the show, have made her successful in major venues in Las Vegas and now worldwide. Susan has over 250 performance dates every year and has developed a loyal fan base.
In fact, Susan's paintings have a style of their own using primarily watercolors and pen and helped to fund her debut album campaign through art sales.
Susan has completed her first original album titled Painting You Gone.
Susan began her professional music career in the Midwestern US. From Branson, Missouri to Los Angeles, CA then Las Vegas and beyond, she has performed for people all over the world. Venues in Las Vegas included New York New York, Paris, Harrah's, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, The Palazzo, Monte Carlo, MGM Grand and others.
Starting Fall 2012, she began an international tour booked in solo venues such as the Caribbean (St. Maarten, Barbados, Aruba, British Virgin Islands), Europe (Amsterdam, Germany, Norway) and Australia soon.
She currently can also be seen performing in Dueling Piano clubs around the U.S coast to coast from time to time.
Susan discovered her passion for music when she was growing up in Magnet Cove, Arkansas, a typical southern small-town community on her parent's farm. As a child she took classical piano lessons and later began performing in churches, pageants and talent contests. After graduating from high school as Class President, Valedictorian, and 4-sport athlete, she attended the University of Central Arkansas where she was a member of the Honors College, the university jazz band, and was President of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority-Upsilon Chapter. Susan competed in the Miss Arkansas Pageant as Miss University of Central Arkansas, and again the following year as Miss Saline River.
After graduating with Honors and a degree in Pure Mathematics, Susan took a job as a Radio Frequency Engineer with Alltel Telecommunications, but soon made the daring decision to leave her "day job" in the corporate world and devote herself to a full-time career in music.
After a few years of working her way up through local piano bars, shows in Branson, Missouri, and finally a lucrative house gig in Los Angeles, Susan made the move to Las Vegas in 2011 where her "calculated risk" (as she calls it) paid off, and her dream of success in the entertainment industry became a reality.
MORE ABOUT THE ALBUMThe album “Painting You Gone” was funded by a crowd funding initiative started in Fall 2013 raising over $50,000 from Susan’s fans and followers. Norrisong Productions Nashville producer David Norris and Susan finished the album in December 2014. All songs were co-written by Susan, her producer and other notable Nashville songwriters Lisa Carver, Flip Anderson, John Goodwin, Erik Halbig, Ryan Story, Lala Deaton, and Neil McKillip.
Susan has achieved success as a painter selling her works now in galleries and online. She created all artwork for the album as well as all online artwork and graphic design for her social networking and website.
