" The wonderful thing to me is that when I hear your recording of any song of mine....I feel as though it is myself, singing...It cannot be sung better - differently, but never better... .with people like this to trust, my music will go on living, and soaring. And so will I. "

  • New Chapter, New Verses

    Aug 26, 2016 | 04:43 am

    New Chapter, New Verses Introducing the Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble, Americana Folk FusionDear Friends,The other morning I walked outside and distinctly felt a difference in the air ~ that oh so subtle shift that comes with the very beginning of the season changing.  It was just a faint change ~ in light, the texture of the air ~ but knowing what it brings, this small change always represents something much larger on the way.  We hope you've had a great summer.  When we last wrote to you in April we were preparing to travel to the great Merlefest music festival in early May.  The festival was a great experience!  We were so wonderfully taken care of there, and were so excited to be[…]

  • Shifting Skies ~ Seasons Moving - October News

    Shifting Skies ~ Seasons Moving - October News "The dreams of my life are so simple and few...Just to be back with you, back with you....in the heartland."   ~ Denise Hagan, "Heartland"Hey Friends, Wow, it's already Autumn...doesn't it seem like it snuck up on you?  It does me, although I'm always happy to have it arrive.  I've been reading Linda Ronstadt's fine memoir, "Simple Dreams" and really enjoying it.  I recommend it if you would like to read about one of the true ground zero locations of the development of country rock in the sixties-seventies.  Kind of amazing that such ground-breaking work all got done in such a small area of the world ~ The Troubador in LA!!  And the shifting sands are already moving beneath us...I've[…]

    June 2013 Hey Friends, Lots going on here in Hilonesome Land this late spring/early summer!Our first music video is ready and we're really proud of the great work done by SunDog Studio on this project for our recording of Ernest Troost's song "Harlan County Boys" from our new album "White Swan." Watch "Harlan County Boys" on YouTubeSpeaking of "White Swan" we have a great new review up on No Depression thanks to Terry Roland ~ here's an excerpt: "From the earthy opening fiddle strains on White Swan to the final song's sweet homage to Appalachian singer-songwriter Jean Ritchie, it's clear this is not an album to listen to once and put away.  Susie Glaze and The Hilonesome Band have made an album that is[…]

    West Virginia Mine DisasterHello again, Friends,I’d like to devote a blog to the great Jean Ritchie original song “West Virginia Mine Disaster.”I first heard Jean herself perform this song several years ago at a music festival where we were appearing together.  It is sung a ccapella, and she did so, sitting in a chair under a tent with lots of folks listening.  It was transformative for me.  The story of a woman whose husband disappears into the mines one day never to return was one that hadn’t been told quite like that ever in my experience.  And, true to Jean’s introduction of the song when she sings it, it hadn’t ever been written from that perspective before either ~ of[…]

  • February-March Newsletter ~ Announcing the Release of "White Swan"

    Apr 2, 2013 | 19:36 pm

    February-March Newsletter ~ Announcing the Release of "White Swan" Announcing the Release of Susie Glaze & the Hilonesome Band's new 2013 album"White Swan"   "Glaze and company have done a wonderful job of charming us in the past but now it seems like her recent vintage live set was to clear the palette before the next stage was set. A bluegrass crew that could easily stand toe to toe with Union Station, this crew has elected to widen the lens and take newgrass into the wide open mixing in Celtic, folk, roots, Americana and a full range of indigenous sounds that blend into a wonderful down home, home grown stew. Boldly powering their way down their own new cut road, if you haven't had the chance to enjoy the[…]

  • Happy New Year - January 2013 Newsletter

    Jan 15, 2013 | 23:27 pm

    Happy New Year - January 2013 Newsletter Dear Friends, Happy New Year! I hope the New Year is off to a great start for everyone.  Here in Los Angeles we are laughing at ourselves at how we cannot take this cold snap ~ our friends and family in more northern climates are chuckling too, as they are used to below freezing for this time of year.  Angelenos, it seems, are mightily “put out” when the temps get below 85!Otherwise, we’ve been lucky out here so far (knock wood) this winter.  I had a most marvelous Christmas season, with luminous Hilonesome Band shows mixed with a lot of great singing at my beloved All Saints in Pasadena.  The cool new thing was that our Christmas Eve service was streamed on[…]

  • Hot, Hot, Hot! August News!

    Jul 31, 2012 | 16:55 pm

    Hot, Hot, Hot! August News! August 3, 2012Dear Friends, The band and I had been planning for a rather slow July until the phone rang one wonderful afternoon in late June and it was McCabe's Guitar Shop offering us a show there on July 15. We excitedly kicked into high gear and ended up with a sell-out crowd and one of the finest nights we've ever had on stage. It was great to reconnect with a lot of our Los Angeles friends who hadn't seen the band in awhile and show them our new stuff! Big thanks go to Wayne Griffiths in the sound booth for giving us the best sound support we've ever had, and Lincoln Myerson at McCabe's for inviting us to play.[…]
