Susan Justice signs to Capitol/Kite Records - to release debut album 'Eat Dirt'

Susan Justice

Every now and then an artist arrives on the scene and captures your attention not with pyrotechnics, high fashion or cutting edge technology but with an honest voice, an open heart, and songs that touch your soul.

Susan Justice just might be one of those rare artists who can speak to a generation.

Capitol Records and Kite Records are pleased to announce that it has signed New York-based singer and songwriter Susan Justice to its roster and will release her debut album, Eat Dirt, in 2012.

Justice delivers a collage of emotionally resonant songs that are deeply personal and reflective but at the same time connects with anyone who's ever tried to figure out who they are and where they belong. Eat Dirt is an inspiring story of survival and a wild joyful ride that puts a smile on your face in these most difficult of times.

Justice co-wrote every song on Eat Dirt with songwriter/producer Toby Gad, who also produced the album. Gad is known for his work with Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson, Fergie, Alicia Keys, and many other best-selling artists.

Having played guitar since the age of six, Justice began writing lyrics at age 14 after being inspired by hearing such artists as Alanis Morissette, Tracy Chapman, Joan Osborne, Prince, and The Fugees tell their stories through their music. She took to busking in the New York City subway, drawing large, appreciative crowds with her dusky voice and original songs.

In 2007, Justice released The Subway Recordings, compiled from two live sets she performed in Times Square and Grand Central Station. The following year, she met veteran artist managers David Sonenberg and William Derella who introduced Justice to Gad. The two began collaborating, sketching out the songs on Eat Dirt. "Writing this album was a real breakthrough for me," Justice says. "I had a hard time expressing myself because I had so many secrets about my life. Toby encouraged me to write about what I was feeling. He was like my psychiatrist."

"Susan is a real artist who can do it all," Gad says. "She can simply pick up a guitar, command your attention. She moves you to tears of joy and somehow makes you want to stand up and cheer. I love her honesty, vulnerability, and inner beauty."

An artist in every sense of the word, Justice is also a furniture maker who recently opened a custom woodworking shop called Homestead in New York City.
