Susan grew up in a musical family, deep in the heart of cajun country in South Louisiana, learning to sing and play the acoustic upright bass by playing music with her dad and brother when she was a teenager. Some of her earliest memories were of her grandfather sitting out on the porch with other musicians, playing his fiddle and singing. She grew up listening and playing in jam sessions at home where folks like Bill Monroe, the Osborne Brothers, and Jim & Jesse passed through to eat her mom's home cooking and relax before performing at the nearby Old South Jamboree. Chuck and Susan have performed together at venues like the New Orleans World's Fair and Savannah Music Festival, and for churches, conferences, tv and radio programs across the southeast and in many foreign countries.
