Susan Swanson has always been involved in the music scene. For 20 years she has experienced and performed music from classical to rock and roll. Her father (Smokey Joe Peoples) introduced her to the world of music in a different light given her classical rearing in Pensacola. In Arkansas, she began to write and perform her original music with The Dirty Rug Band in 2004. After 8 years, having landed in Kentucky, with nothing more than her guitar and a suitcase, she performed in the local music scene. Finally deciding to come back to her roots, she has taken her experiences and created a unique and passionate sound to share with the people around her.
