Considered by jazz critic and historian Ted Gioia, who has listed her album among the 40 best of 2016, as “the Andalusian Eva Cassidy,” Raya is a rare thing.
“She has developed a style where voice and guitar seem to breathe at the same time”.
Amsterdam-based songwriter and classically trained guitarist, with numerous European awards, Susana combines her singer-songwriter spirit with a touch of jazz, enhanced by her Spanish roots.
Her collaboration with legendary jazz bassist, Steve Swallow opened the door to the recording of her new album – recorded live at Clubhouse Studios, Rhinebeck, NY – “Wind Rose”, that includes songs created over the last five years, and a line-up of All Star players such as Clifford Carter, Ira Coleman, Leo Amuedo, and Cyro Baptista.
