Quotes & Reviews

“The CD’s material is extremely well chosen, perfectly executed as far as the musicians are concerned and with Hickman emoting passionately on the ballads and downtempo items and with excitement and verve on the tempo tunes. A very good start indeed.  – Jon Philibert, COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE MAGAZINE 

"She’s quite a vocalist, with a delivery as sure and true as an arrow. The throaty breaks in her performance are perfect for the heartache in this finely-crafted power ballad."

 – Robert K.Oermann, MUSIC ROW on "Hell Ain't Frozen Over"

"Not since Garth Brooks has an artist so completely brought rock 'n roll energy to country music. The proof is in the pudding, as it were: Susan Hickman's self-titled debut album drops is poised to break through the walls of commercial country radio as one of the hottest Indie debuts of the year." - Wildy Haskell, WILDY'S WORLD

“Listeners won’t re-discover Joplin’s anguished wail or Underwood’s angelic whisper ... they will hear a voice that at turns sighs and storms, coos and cajoles, howls and haunts. That’s what Susan Hickman has to offer. No comparisons necessary."

 - Dean Poling, VALDOSTA DAILY TIMES 

 

“Her powerful voice, which she masters admirably, will remind you of Carrie Underwood’s (a country music singer) especially on the track Whipping Post. The album has rhythm, as well as several pretty ballads, which is a good mix. You won’t be able to resist listening to Hell Still Ain’t Frozen Over and Sunday on repeat. This is a great discovery, as I have no doubt that we will hear more from this young artist who is enchanting in this first album. After listening to it, you will be impressed by its originality, and feel like listening to Susan Hickman again. 

– Sheppard Micoud, AMERICAN CULTURE SCOPE

 

“A rare gem from Texas. Not merely great songs well produced but, at last, someone who can sing.And how! A very likeable album from a gutsy young lady”  

. – HANNAH’S WORLD

 

“Throughout the album, Susan proves herself as a fine vocalist.” 

– Stewart Fenwick, COUNTRY MUSIC & DANCE

 

“This album is certainly out of the top drawer. Susan’s voice is outstanding.” 

– John Brookefield, PATHFINDER

 

“Susan has a fresh, soulful voice and a modern country and country/rock style that effortlessly turns from a swinging two-stepper to a poignant ballad.”

- David Allan, COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE

 

"An utterly A-list album, blissful for all the right reasons - music/band/production made perfect through Susan Hickman and her music." 

- COUNTRY ROUTES MAGAZINE (UK)

 

"Sure, Susan Hickman has arrived with first glance similarities to Lambert and Underwood. But rather than have that serve as a frustration, it’s a compliment. Susan Hickman is no wannabee clone. She’s striving and, with this album, She’s arriving." – George Peden, COUNTRY STARS ONLINE

 

“Susan’s talent is immediately apparent and the material well-chosen – big songs to match a big voice – and hits every demographic index.” - R2 ROCK & REEL (UK)

“The indisputable talent of Susan should allow her a beautiful career with much success to come.”-  Jacques Dufour, LE CRI DU COYOTE (FRANCE)

"The album “Susan Hickman” is a wonderful programme of contemporary country featuring nine strong compositions from current writers plus a courageous, and successful, attempt at the Gregg Allman song “The Whipping Post."

 - Pete Smith, THE ADVERTISER (UK)

 

"Simply captivating. Susan delivers such a gripping blend of resolve and vulnerability that it's impossible not to be drawn in by her stunning performance." 

–Allen Foster, SONGWRITER’S MONTHLY on "Hell Ain't Frozen Over" 

"Country radio is looking for a voice to cut through all the sound a likes and Susan is it. A great song, a beautiful voice and an asset to every playlist it is on...if it isn't on your playlist, it should be." - Ted Cramer, WIFE-FM / Indiana

"Wow! She is ON on this song! The emotion pours from her voice like a waterfall. I think she has a beautiful silky smooth voice with just the right strength. Beautiful song with big-time sounding  production that will connect to listeners." 

- Jarrett Jackson, KCJC-FM / Arkansas

 

"Susan’s clear and fresh vocals are at their best on "Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over."  Would make a lovely night club two-step dance." 

-  Gaye Teather, UP COUNTRY (UK) 

 

"This gal knows how to get inside of a song. This song ("Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over") deserves a lot of airplay." - Jim Moulton, JIM'S COUNTRY REVIEWS

 

"The hook’s melody is very interesting and well-balanced. Susan keeps strong vocal control on ("Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over")." -  NASHVILLE COUNTRY CLUB  

 

"She's at her best right here. 'Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over' bypasses the perky pop of Nashville's recent dark decade and sticks to the basics: solid melody, tight musicianship, and a vocalist who doesn't try to do too much." – Wildy Haskell, WILDY'S WORLD

 

“While the sound, production and tone of Susan Hickman smartly blends modern and traditional country touches, Hickman's at home with several different vocal styles.

Her narrative flair is revealed in exuberant tunes like "Red" and "Hell Still Ain't Frozen Over," the first single chosen for the American radio market. But she's just as animated and expressive on the flashy "Friday at the Latest."Her sultry, rangy and powerful voice and authoritative style have earned her solid reviews." – Ron Wynn, NASHVILLE SCENE

 

"With right-on vocals and inflection, Hickman is a welcome addition to the commercial country scene as her songs have the right sass and bounce to get her point across. Rocked up, revved up and ready to go, it's a sweet debut that hits the mark." 

- Chris Spector, MID-WEST RECORD RECAP
