Background[edit]

The eighth album release by Susanna is a series of original songs, and here she prove herself as an original songwriter with a strong signature. All About Jazz critique John Kelman, in his review The Forester states:

... Instead, throughout The Forester, Susanna delivers words that examine, in a most profound and poetic fashion, the joys and pitfalls of the human condition, her voice combining strength and vulnerability, and employing vibrato sparingly, as a device rather than a crutch...[1]
