PRAISE FOR OH SUSANNA & JOHNSTOWN

“Oh Susanna’s passionate vocals and evocative, backward-glancing songs make her one of new music’s brightest lights.” - Maclean’s

“Brilliant debut album” - UNCUT Magazine (UK)

“Ungerleider is a natural story-teller with a bewitching voice.” - The Times (UK)

“Johnstown was an album that came through the post, and I immediately loved it. Her voice has a heart-tugging emotive quality.” - Bob Harris in Billboard Magazine

“Oh Susanna demonstrates her deep understanding of traditional folk music conventions by creating a memorable cast of characters badly bruised and battered as they travel down a lonesome highway.” - Country Music People Magazine (UK)

“’Johnstown’ is quite frankly, like no other released in 2000. Produced by Peter Moore who worked with The Cowboy Junkies on their ‘The Trinity Sessions’ album, the echoes of old Appalachian ballads and songs dealing with personal loss and helplessness was, although dark and bleak, never less than fascinating.” - Pennyblack Music (UK)

On Record Store Day, Oh Susanna (Suzie Ungerleider) celebrated the 20th anniversary of her critically acclaimed, debut full-length album Johnstown with a re-mastered vinyl release. Originally released in 1999, Johnstown is considered a contemporary folk-noir masterpiece brimming with ghostly songs of melancholic beauty and menace. Oh Susanna’s voice evokes a cinematic narration to simultaneously warm the heart and chill the blood.   

Today, Oh Susanna announces the 20th Anniversary Show on June 7 at Longboat Hall at The Great Hall in Toronto, where she’ll be joined by special guest Mo Kenney. The show is being promoted by Collective Concerts and is a NXNE partnered event. Tickets are on sale April 26 at 10am ET here.

 Johnstown was produced and recorded by Grammy Award winner Peter J. Moore (Cowboy Junkies, The Band, The Clash) at his studio on Beaconsfield Street in Toronto. The vinyl re-issue of Johnstown is remastered by Moore from the original recorded tracks and includes a limited-edition poster of Johnstown’s illustrated lyrics by the comic artist Hank Pine.  Also included is a digital download of A Shot of Oh Susanna, a five-song cassette recorded in 1998 which was previously only available at live shows. These acoustic versions of songs later received full production on Johnstown.

This first pressing of Johnstown will be limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and will only be available through independent retailers for Record Store Day. The digitally remastered album will be available to stream on all platforms on June 14.

On Decemberly, Oh Susanna teams up with pianist and songwriter Michael Johnston to perform new and classic holiday songs. Inspired by the Christmas parties Michael and his partner Annie host each year where friends gather around the piano to sing, Oh Susanna and Michael decided to record a mini album of songs with just piano and vocals. This collection of songs and the intimacy of the recording pays homage to albums and artists such as A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, A Very She & Him Christmas, and Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s fun interplay.

“Every year I look forward to getting out the Christmas music from the 40s, 50s and 60s,” says Suzie Ungerleider (Oh Susanna). “One January, I didn’t want to stop listening to all this good music and decided to write a song called ‘After the Holidays’ inspired by all those great Jazz and Pop crooners. I recruited my dear friend, pianist and songwriter Michael Johnston to write the lyrics with me…full of double entendres and flirtation – I even made up a word ‘Decemberly’ to describe the magical feeling of the holiday time. This year I decided it was time for me and Michael to record a mini album of holiday songs including our original ‘After the Holidays’.”
