She loved all forms of music and art, from pop to jazz, classical to rock, folk to gospel and from Rembrandt to Pollock – she embraced it all. She sang beautifully and often with a very unique and natural vibrato. When she sang “the clouds would part” as her friend Julie Vance once said. She wrote and composed her own songs. As she matured her songs reflected more and more of her remarkable spiritual journey and inner transformation.
This album is a selection of some those songs she wrote in her last few years. This album, “From the Heart”, also showcases the musical and singing talents of many of her equally gifted friends and admirers that she cultivated throughout her life.
Susan Chiat was, among other exceptional talents, a gifted artist, musician, songwriter and singer who first started playing guitar with her friend Geri when she was 13 years old.
