Grand Folk Railroad
Grand Folk Railroad blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk and singer/songwriter genres.
Grand Folk Railroad brings on the fun with an eclectic/eccentric mix of folk-rock-flavored, flower-powered forgotten favorites, 60’s pop gems, one hit wonders, and the inspiring songwriting of lead singer Susan Cohen. When it comes to pinning down a style and genre, singer/songwriter Susan Cohen isn’t easy to classify. With a big voice that’s deeply rooted in old school country, you might expect honky-tonk inspired tales of love and loss. But there’s an edge and a sense of sophistication that quickly become apparent as the stories and melodies in Susan’s finely crafted songs reveal themselves. By combining these elements, Susan has developed a songwriting style that is unique, compelling and that transcends what listeners expect from those who wear the singer/songwriter moniker. With a make-every-note-count approach to performing, a vast eclectic repertoire, questionable regard for folk music traditions and an unusual collection of “genre inappropriate” instruments, Grand Folk Railroad blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk and singer/songwriter genres.
