http://www.rockwired.com/everythingmustchangecd.jpgFEBRUARY 19, 2012 - The weekly online radio series Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is back and is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features an exclusive interview with Susan Krebs of The Susan Krebs Band regarding their brand new release Everything Must Change. In the opening segment, Krebs discusses the inspiration behind the song selection for this new project, working with a stellar combo comprised of longtime collaborators Rich Eames and Jerry Kalaf and what she hopeslisteners will take away from the experience. The second half of this edition of Jazzed and Blue will feature music from such jazz and blues artists as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Nick Moran Trio, Mozik, Veronneau, Diane Schuur and more. “After being gone for about three months, it is great to finally be back and doing this show again. " says Jazzed and Blue host Brian Lush. “It's a real treat to end a long week with a show like this and to kick back and listen to some great music."

Everything Must Change, the newest recording from Susan and her longtime collaborators, Rich Eames and Jerry Kalaf, is a departure from their enthusiastically received Jazz Aviary concept recording (2007). Joined by the deeply simpatico Ryan McGillicuddy and Chuck Manning, the Susan Krebs Band made music together one recent summer: “We had some seriously good fun!” says Susan. “I chose tunes which I’d been living with for a while, musically mulling in my garden and on long walks - tunes which resonate with me in a very personal way, with the title tune, “Everything Must Change”, guiding the feel of the album and reflecting the tenor of the times we live in.” The collaborative nature of the project can be heard throughout the recording. “Mostly, it felt that the music just arrived, ya know?”, says Susan. There is an immediacy and an intimacy to this recording which reflect the spirited sessions which make up “Everything Must Change”.  The final track on the album, “Are Ya Havin’ Any Fun?”, leaves no doubt about the grand summer fun these folks had:  “It’s our feel-good single for challenging and changing times!”, offers Susan. Everything Must Change is an opportunity to hear Krebs in a small ensemble setting, delightfully organic, fully interactive, focused and engaged.  Her vocal delivery is spot on, and invokes the modern jazz language with masterful control, truly a journey worth exploring, that offers a uplifting outcome

Born and raised in Baltimore, Susan grew up in a home filled with the sounds of Bach, Beethoven, Gilbert & Sullivan, Broadway Musicals and the blues of Bessie, Billie and Ella. Graduating from Hollins University, Susan went on to New York City – studying acting with Uta Hagen, appearing in Off-Broadway plays and musicals, TV commercials and performing with the improvisational theater company, War Babies. She then relocated to Los Angeles, making it her new home – delighted that she could garden and hike – and that there were greater work opportunities. Over the years, she has appeared in dozens of TV shows (Shameless and Mad Men, most recently), Films (Million Dollar Baby, 28 Days), Animation, Radio & TV Commercials, and Theater, including her own solo musical revue, LUNAR I; the all-women’s improvisational company, the Wims;  and the contemporary opera, A String of Pearls, both in L.A. and at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Theater.
 
Throughout Susan’s career as an actor and improviser, she was also performing as a jazz vocalist, and studied with the great jazz singers, Sue Raney and Sheila Jordan.  Then, seeking clarity and artistic direction during a four month "middle years" retreat in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Susan’s sense of herself as a "jazz gardener" came into being - which she explains is "about the art of becoming - whether working with plants or music or with oneself - to dig down, to cultivate, to encourage growth, to thrive and flourish, and eventually to let go and begin the cycle anew."

   ABOUT THE HOST:
http://www.rockwired.com/brian.JPGBRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn't looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED's way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. "Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable." says LUSH "But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I'd be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I'm the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions."
