Oslo-based artist Susanna is best known for her duo Susanna And The Magical Orchestra (with keyboardist Morten Qvenild) as well as her unique and striking interpretations of iconic songs such as ”Jolene,” ”Hallelujah” and ”Love Will Tear Us Apart,” among her covers that re-interpret everyone from AC/DC to ABBA to Lou Reed.
Bonnie ”Prince” Billy has performed and recorded her songs and Mojo named her song ”Believer” as ”one of the greatest break-up songs ever.” She visits Philadelphia for the first time in celebration of “Wild Dog,” her eighth album (which features Emmett Kelly and Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara), and her recent ECM album with harpist Giovanna Pessi. Susanna has written music to poems by the Norwegian modernist Gunvor Hofmo, collaborated with Ensemble Neon, Jenny Hval, John Paul Jones, Tord Gustavsen, and Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent, elephant9). Her trio includes Helge Sten, known for his work as Deathprod and in Supersilent.
