Music has always been my true passion. My youth was spent not only listening to mainstream music, but also listening to college radio, discovering new bands, and going out to support live music and local undiscovered talent. Some things never change. My enthusiasm and love of music remain as strong as ever.
While my background is accounting and management, I found what made me most happy was leaving the corporate world to utilize my energy and passion in the music business, so I dove in to lend a more formal supporting hand to those who could use my varied services. My business background is not wasted, as it helps me every day in what I do, which is:
• Band, artist & record label promotion
• Event planning
• People-connecting with regard to booking gigs, obtaining endorsements, and creating/furthering artist-to-artist and artist-to-gear manufacturer relationships, etc.
I do it all with enthusiasm, energy, and integrity. I value what you do. I want to see you succeed. And if for some reason I can't help you, I will find someone who can. -- Susan Russo
Susan is "top shelf and a triple threat of PR, Social Media and Networking,"... "knows how to get the brand out, whether a guitarist or band." - Jim Felber, Artist Relations, D'Angelico Guitars
"Susan Russo is a "jack of all trades" ("Jacqueline of all trades"). For the last two years she has done everything for me and my company -- from helping me with my new website, to promoting my live gigs and publicity for my last two CD releases. I’ve been doing this for decades from The Hudson Brothers to Aerosmith, and it's always tough to find somebody you can trust with your career and your art. Susan has never let me down, and her people skills always make me look and sound better than I really am. She is always up on all the facts and has the instincts of a fortune teller. She is like a manager, a publicist, a promoter, all wrapped into one human. When you work with Susan...you're working with the 'real deal.'" - Mark Hudson, Grammy-winning producer/songwriter (Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osborne, Celine Dion and more)
"she is focused with a vision. She sees and hears an artist as they see themselves and gets it. That's why she is great to work with to further advance the careers and dreams of those who put their trust in her. I'm a fan." - Michael Ciro, Multi-Platinum and Gold record award-winning musician and producer, Musical Director for Grammy-winning artist Alejandro Sanz
