Susan Cantey

In 1975 Susan joined BMI (Broadcast Music Incorporated) and recorded a Christian album. Her band played at churches and Christian coffee houses during the summer. In the fall of 1975, Susan entered college. She graduated in three years, Phi Beta Kappa, and become a math teacher. Song writing fell by the wayside. In 2000 Susan met a wonderful Christian man who challenged her to start writing songs again. She began writing prolifically.

In January 2003, Susan joined NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) and a local song writers’ group in Dayton Ohio. Today she is still continuing to work hard at the craft of songwriting, arranging and producing. Currently she performs her songs at local churches, restaurants and vocal contests.
