Susan Cattaneo, longtime New England favorite and member of the beloved group The Boxcar Lillies, blends folk, rock, and blues with a strong dose of twang. Her new double album, The Hammer & The Heart, brims with everything from barn-burning rockers to heart wrenching ballads and features a staggering 41 special guests, including Americana stalwarts The Bottle Rockets, Bill Kirchen, Duke Levine, and Mark Erelli.
“Musicians make albums because albums allow you to tell a bigger story,” she says, “and this is the story of how I went from almost giving up to rediscovering the joy of making music – thanks to a wonderful community of musicians and friends.” Today, Cattaneo unleashes “When Love Goes Right,” a new single from the album, a slow-burning testament to true love.
“I wrote this song with Bill Kirchen,” she explains. “Most of love songs talk about either the rush of new love or breakups. Bill and I have been married to our respective spouses for a long time, and we decided to write a song that celebrates the beauty that comes with a love that’s sweetened and deepened with time,” she continues. “I was lucky enough to have him also sing and play on this song.”
