Susan Hodgdon

Has been performing one-woman shows in clubs throughout NYC for the last six years. Goal is to honor and preserve the American Songbook. Has just completed second CD. “So In love With Cole”, (first studio CD) a collection of 17 beautiful Cole Porter songs. First CD was a live performance of Judy Garland show, “ I Could Go On Singing”, recorded live at Don`t Tell Mama, NYC. Will shortly be performing throughout clubs in NYC, a Cole Porter Show a celebration of Cole Porter, the American Songbook and her new CD.


Susan Hodgdon has a passion for singing the American Songbook and performs one-woman shows at New York City clubs. Her second CD pays tribute to one of the greatest songwriters of the 20thCentury, Cole Porter, known for both his music and lyrics. As she opens with “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To,” Hodgdon’s voice is immediately appealing and magnetic. She tackles the pleasing repertoire of hits with contagious energy and without too many interpretive twists. Her accompaniment includes piano (Daryl Kojak), tenor sax (Steven Frieder), bass (Sean Conly) and drums (Dwayne Cook Broadnax)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
