Review By Darren McIntyre

Susan Santos is a celebrated singer/songwriter/guitarist from Madrid who is self-taught and a lefty into the bargain. Susan has a list of accolades to her name mainly  Best Musical Performance @ European Blues Awards 2018, Best Female Album @ LA Critics Awards 2019 and has been fortunate enough to share the stage with the incredible Billy Gibbons. Susan has given us 5 studio albums – Take Me Home 2010, Shuffle Woman 2012, Electric Love 2014, Skin & Bones 2016, No U-Turn 2018 & The LA Session EP in 2020. On the 13th of January I brought you the fantastic lead single Hot Rod Lady from her soon-to-be-released new studio album, today I bring you the follow-up single Snakebite, kick back, grab a cold one and set yourself free with this awesome new track.

Snakebite – A real deep sludgy blues riff pours from the intro as slide guitar licks get this foot-stomping blues eruption off the ground. We get soulful vocals that just take this track to another place as the slick clean lines elevate this classy blues piece. The snare drum punches work well with the deep bassline that is wrapping itself around this thigh-slapping rock n roll arrangement as we get lost in the smooth melodic vocals that flow effortlessly through this fantastic track, the tempo changes pace as Susan unleashes a slick guitar salvo that lets us get lost in the musicality as the band gets tight and pulls out all the stops to allow this fantastic track to express itself as the groove just flows and really delivers a sludgy blues beat that is just incredible.
