"Stuart Cameron talks Country"

Susan Hickman
This fabulous American Country singer has a storming new single released this month. The driving Wrapped Up In Me combines foot stomping fiddle with a cracking vocal performance. The song will crossover from radio on to the dancefloor well and the Houston based singer, who lists Janis Joplin, Pat Benatar and LeAnn Rimes among her influences, is still a young 23 year old who loves songwriting as much as singing. There's a campaign on her website at the moment to bring her to the UK. Where do I sign that petition? - Up Country Magazine

"Stuart Cameron talks Country"

Susan Hickman
She's sexy, talented and a dynamic new Country performer from America. Her latest single, Sunday Paper, is a hard hitting cracker of a cut which has loads of appeal. The 22 year old from Houston, Texas, has been involved in music most of her young life, playing piano and violin and currently adding guitar to her list! Her first outing into the
world of recording came when she was 15 when she recorded a pop album but it was a chance meeting with Doug DeForest, a superb producer, which turned her on to Country music and she's never looked back. One listen to her new single shows without doubt that she is very much at home with Country music. - Up Country Magazine

Susan Hickman has found her niche in a blend of rocking, uplifting country that hints at a range of influences from Janis Joplin to Dolly Parton. Passion is evident from the very first note, and her considerable talent allows her to segue from whisper-quiet reflections to barn-burnin' romps with ease. Hickman's in control and loving it – and she proves it on her debut country CD, SUSAN HICKMAN.

The old soul beauty is not without credentials; over the past few years she has shared the stage with high-profile acts like Dean Dillion, Johnny Lee, Mickey Gilley, Tracy Byrd, Jo Dee Messina, Miranda Lambert, Phil Vassar, to name a few. Her live shows are energetic, and she’s developed quite a following in her home state. “I love performing,” Susan says admits. “When you can feel the audience’s energy, you know you’re doing your job.”

Music has always been a part of the feisty blonde’s life story; she started taking piano lessons when she was just five years old and added the violin and guitar in her teens. "Yes, I'm blessed to come from a very musical family," she laughs. "We were always singing and playing; our family reunions are just awesome."

Susan grew up singing in the church choir, listening to her parents’ favorite classic rock songs, and hearing her mom sing opera around the house. Her mother often made up songs to get her two daughters motivated. “There was literally a song for everything,” Susan recalls. “Gonna clean house today? Yep, she had just the song to put you in the mood.” That musical backdrop helped drive the Texan’s love of song, and according to her parents, the exposure began when Susan was still in the cradle. Family legend tells us that Hickman was actually singing before she started talking. "Crazy, right?" Susan laughs. "Well, some things never change."

Another thing that hasn't changed is this songbird’s precociousness. When she was just 12-years old, Susan cold-called a talent agency and scheduled an audition. Why? "My mom told me I'd have to convince her that I was sure I wanted a career in music before she'd let me pursue it,” Susan recalls. “Making that call was my way of showing her that I was serious. She's been behind me every step of the way, ever since."

While that first phone call didn't lead to instant stardom, it did give Hickman an insider's look at the industry - and helped prepare her for the work ahead. Her life, she says, has been focused on a career in entertaining ever since.

Susan is the human equivalent of a perpetual motion “machine” - and she now divides her time between live performances, songwriting, rehearsals, skydiving and graphic design work. “I’m always busy,” Susan confides with a laugh. “But I’m also pretty much happy all the time. I promised myself that my ‘job’ would be something I loved. Music is it.”

Another promise the aspiring star made was to never compromise herself or her music. “I’ve always said that if I tell you something, it’s the truth. For me, if it’s even possible, when I sing something - it’s even truer,” Susan states. Her moral compass leads her in everything from song choices to venue selections – and she is steadfast in her beliefs.
