She is one of the leading champions of the great American Songbook having made her mark as a singer, pianist, composer, lyricist, arranger, actress, educator, TV host and producer. Her unique singing style blends Jazz and traditional Pop, making her a mainstay in concert halls, theaters and Jazz clubs as well as in the recording studio, on television and in film. She wrote and sang the theme song to the hit TV series The Nanny and is a Platinum award-winning writer whose songs are featured on seven of Barbra Streisand's CDs. And, she is the only composer to have collaborated with Cole Porter!
After writing twelve albums of songs in styles ranging from Folk/Rock to Tin Pan Alley to Gospel, Country and Chamber Music, what might Susan Werner, deemed by National Public Radio as "The Empress of the Unexpected" try next?
She first arrived on the national stage when her 1995 BMG debut earned her national concert tours with Joan Armatrading and Richard Thompson. In 1996, Werner was featured as part of the "next generation" in Peter Paul and Mary's PBS Special LifeLines. She has performed on NPR's World Café, NPR's Mountain Stage, and in a 2016 Nebraska Educational Television broadcast "The Land Will Outlive Us All," a one-hour special on Werner, agriculture and her 2015 concert tour across the state.
