My name is Susana. I´m a Spanish singer and guitar player based in Amsterdam. I have been learning, touring and making music around the world in the past 15 years. Now I want to share with you my own songs, influenced by all the treasures I have found in my way. Wind rose is a symbol used by sailors and explorers in their journeys. Music is my rose, leading me through this path of life.

#04 / Lo conseguimos, gracias.

Queridos mecenas,

Lo hemos conseguido, GRACIAS.

Siento que estas palabras no son suficientes para expresar toda mi gratitud. Así que lo haré de la mejor forma que sé hacer, poniendo todo mi cariño y esfuerzo para terminar este proyecto.

El disco entra ahora en proceso de mezcla y masterización, a la vez que empezaremos a desarrollar el arte gráfico. La entrega del CD físico está prevista en primavera. En este Blog publicaré los avances que se vayan haciendo.

Las recompensas Diario de viaje y Demos originales estarán disponibles en un par de semanas, vía correo electrónico. También me pondré en contacto con aquellos que reservaron su Clase o su Concierto acústico privados para acordar un día.

Estamos trabajando en las fechas de los conciertos de presentación. Cuando las tengamos os la comunicaré de inmediato.

#03 / ¡Feliz año! / Happy new year!

(english below)

A doce días para finalizar la campaña y queda sólo un poquito para conseguirlo.

Después de unos días navideños al sol, vengo con las pilas cargadas para afrontar la recta final, con muchas ganas de terminar y poder centrarme en las cuestiones puramente musicales y el arte gráfico del disco.

Mi nuevo año se presenta con una voluntad de cambio, de aceptar retos y de hacer el mejor disco que pueda para los que habéis confiado en mí.

¡Feliz año!

Susana

Hi!

Only few days to the end of the campaign and we´re almost there!

After a sunny Christmas time at my hometown, I´m full of energy to face the final stretch. I´m very looking forward to finish and start focusing only on musical matters and the art of the album.

I want a new year full of changes, challenges and the intention of making the best album I can for all the people who believed in me.

Happy New Year to you all!

Susana

#02 / Diario de viaje / Journey diary

(english below)

Queridos mecenas,

Gracias por formar parte de este viaje. El hacer música, componer, escribir, sale de un lugar muy íntimo y cuando se comparte adquiere una nueva dimensión. Ya no soy sólo yo, sino todas las emociones que despierta una canción, a cada cual diferente, cada uno con sus vivencias y su forma de ser. Por eso, me gustaría haceros llegar mis anotaciones, fotos y algunos fragmentos de video de este camino para mostraros lo que viví y sentí. Lo recibiréis poco después del final de la campaña.

Muy agradecida,
Susana.

Dear patrons,

Thank you for being part of this journey. Making music, composing, writing, all comes from a very intimate place and when it´s shared it takes a whole new dimension.
