Die Berliner Sängerin Susanna Berivan verbindet den rauen Blues-Sound der 60er Jahre mit aktuellen Erzählungen. Berührend und schön.
\"Susanna Berivan has got the blues. But really. And if we now speak in categories such as deep and real we are absolutely serious about it and venture far out into post-meta territory. Susanna Berivan is from Berlin but she lives in Leipzig. On stage she stands alone, in black, with a weathered acoustic guitar, frowning her Frida-Kahlo-eyebrows, singing, hurting and trumpeting into the long reverb. Lamenting, bewitching, bedazzling. Melancholic is for softies, this is the real deal. Of course her sound is full of references. Blues, as stated before, Americana, alternative country, folk and soul. 50s and 60s, Camp and Tarantino. Maybe in a previous life Susanna Berivan went on a road trip through the southern states of America, in her ’64 Thunderbird, working in a remote diner, reading dime novels, watching the bird migrate to Mexico. We don’t know that. But the retrospective, the stylistic and the contextual aspects, which often render this type of music interesting today, surrender to her performance, her charisma and most importantly: her voice. Susanna Berivan’s blues is really just blue. And it will get you (...).\" Norman Palm für TORSTRASSEN FESTIVAL 2014
\"Berliner Susanna and her band (...) play music that is steeped in soul and blues, while Susanna\'s most distinctive voice provides a beautiful and sharp-edged paradox of melancholic uplift.\" David Strauss for EXBERLINER MAGAZINE
\"Susanna Berivan took the mic and kept the audience in the palm of her hands for her whole show.\" SUNDAY EXTRAORDINAIRE
