Q & A with Susan - Part 3
21st April 2010
What will the next album be like?
My next album has to have an element of surprise in it again. I don’t want to go into to much detail because I don’t want to spoil the surprise for other people so I’m hoping to make it better and a bit extra special. Watch this space!
Are you looking forward to returning to the recording studio?
Very much so, I love recording. The recording studio is your own space, its your bubble, it’s you and the music and the producer and engineer. That’s when the real craft comes in and that’s how people get to hear what you are really like. It is like my sanctuary.
Now that you are a serious record breaking artist does that add a certain amount of pressure on you and the second album?
Well everybody strives to do better at what they do. There is some pressure, and it’s a good pressure because it’s the pressure to keep going, the pressure to strive and do better for your fans because they are the ones you are trying to please and you really count on for their support so if you can do even better and perfect your art even more it gives them more value of their money and hopefully come and see you.
Musically your album represented where you were a year ago. What sort of music would represent you now?
Probably 60’s music because that was my era. Bit of a mixture of songs, I think now. I’m a bit more content within myself. Everything sits very comfortably on my shoulders now and I’m more relaxed now. A year ago it was all new to me, I wasn’t relaxed but who would be and I think Im growing as the years gone on I’ve been growing into it.
How are you feeling at this point in your career and what are your ambitions now?
I hope to make a positive step and I hope to go on and keep getting better and better and I hope I can continue to please the fans.
You fulfilled a long-held ambition and duetted with Elaine Paige. Do you have any other dream duets that you’d like to perform and if so, with whom and what songs?
It would have to be Donny Osmond and it would have to be a special song for the two of us. I’d like it to be an original song.
Is the music industry what you expected it to be?
It’s been very kind to me over the last few months. I’ve enjoyed it immensely and i want to continue in it.
