Susan’s outstanding voice and appealing guitar style, alongwith her strong stage presence is very refreshing in the contemporary blues scene. Blues-rock of XXI Century.
“Susan Santos is a guitar hero. She has chops to spare. She is a monster in the studio, overdubbing well performed layers of guitar that sound live and immediate. Santos is also an accomplished songwriter who crafts sturdy, hook laden numbers.But, there are not any real Blues burners. There is not a traditional 12 bar pattern anywhere. However, for those purists who are looking for this talented slinger to lay it down old school check out some of the YouTube videos of Santos and band. She can get down and weep out a deep 12 bar Blues like nobody’s business. With this her 5th record, No U Turn is a high point for a deep soulful artist in her prime.”

“Spanish guitar tornado, stinging, sineous guitar lines, powerhouse riffs, sumptuous slide, great songs and a killer power trio. She’s got an understated confidence that bubbles to the top, via snaking guitar lines at the core of a song-driven album, full of energetic arrangements, sparkling solos that illuminates her considerable abilities”
“No U Turn” all fit together seamlessly and flow like the best albums always
do, as Susan shapes her material with the kind of gusto that has led her to
winning the ‘Best Performer’ category at the European Blues Awards.
