Biography

’Her forlorn, hyperromantic lyrics are what you’d expect from a girl who reads Shakespeare’
-Rolling Stone (October 2006)

Susan Enan released her debut album ‘Plainsong’ in July 2009. In 2006, while demoing songs for the record, Enan began receiving worldwide attention after her track ‘Bring On The Wonder’ featuring Sarah McLachlan, appeared on the second season of the Fox show Bones. The song was also featured on the shows soundtrack two years later. It took another 6 months to wrap up the record proper which features a remix of Bring on the Wonder along with 9 other tracks.


Enan grew up in Cambridgeshire, England. After moving to Liverpool to study music, she began playing the local singer songwriter scene. It was during these years she discovered a love for film scores and the simple, yet intelligent, folk songs of Woody Guthrie.


‘What I liked about Woody Guthrie was the reason he wrote and how that informed his writing style. It had to be simple so the political songs could be easily remembered for the sake of the cause, yet the songs where also very smart. I love that combination in art: simplicity that goes right to the soul but doesn’t have to bypass the brain on the way.’


After leaving Liverpool she moved to Northern Ireland and continued to write and record a few small EP’s released locally, but it was the ‘Moonlight’ EP (2003) which began to get more attention internationally.

    "Bring on the Wonder" and "Monoplain" are on amiestreet.com for 98 cents each (well worth the price!).

    Yeah, I heard it on bones. Too bad I can't find a file with proper sound quality. I've only got some lame 32kbps recording.
