I like “And yet” very much. Eclectic, haunting, memorable. Would fit in the right context. Very specific feel. I like the selection of instruments. For me often less is more. Why muddy a pretty song and voice with too much production! Wayne
“Susan has created one of the few albums I’ve heard in a long time that is for everyone. She includes the melancholy ballads, the songs reminiscent of past losses, the songs that offer hope, as well as some that will just rock your Pink Sox off…...... it crosses listening tastes, you might hear it being blasted from your teenager’s upstairs bedroom while you are playing it on the stereo downstairs and just enjoying some relaxing time.”
SHMUSICMUSIC RECORDS welcomes Billboard/ASCAP awarded American songwriter Susan Barth on-board - Susan’s “Wonderland” album spent almost six months in the top ten (Pulse Radio UK). “I could never have imagined a female artist sounding anything like The Beatles and also capturing the same measure of magic in their songs until I discovered Susan Barth” Charles Foskett / record producer.
“She has a colorful voice that invests her melodic, Beatles-influenced material with the kind of life that has garnered several TV placements. Her nimble lyrics impress us.”

“Wonderland is Susan Barth’s most recent release and one of the best written, performed, and produced albums we’ve received to date. The album features eleven highly commercial tracks each featuring startling examples of informed and innovative songwriting and positively enhanced musicianship.”

I could honestly appreciate the voice of Barth and the efforts of her supporting cast as something of the essence. I felt subdued, which is not necessarily a bad thing; I cannot always be rocking and waving my fist in the air. I had to deal with what was going on inside me, this music forced me to reflect on my life, who I am, and what I have become, whether I liked it or not, only then I was able to get out of the funk I was stuck in."

“LA-based pop singer, Susan Barth released a compilation CD of “7 Song Compilation” on her label Pink Sox Songs…I liked Barth’s CD. Especially the first song “And Yet”. This song could become a hit. I am familiar with Barth’s previous work. I liked many of her songs, but “And Yet” is probably the best song Barth ever recorded. Her voice has become more mature, richer and could I say, more meaningful? Instead of past bursting and warm outcries, Barth’s voice reshaped and redefined itself into a well-cultured vocal depth with intelligence and sincerity. A more defined quality is added to her voice, and this new compilation of songs will lead to establishing Barth as a real pop singer on a big scale.”
“After listening to ‘Wonderland,’ it’s obviously that this is true. Barth’s songs are all exquisitely constructed, with lush guitar interludes and gorgeous synth washes and just the right hooks to make them instantly hummable and impossible to get out of your head. Barth’s vocals are pitch-perfect lovely, pleasant and poppy with just a touch of melancholy.
In many ways, “Wonderland” is a reflection of Barth’s own struggles to get a toehold in the Hollywood dream. On the surface, the album is a wonderful collection of pleasant-sounding pop songs, with Susan Barth’s distinctively sweet yet edgy vocals being the focal point. When you dig a little deeper, though, you find yourself smack dab in the middle of a story about disillusionment.”
