Surf Music. For folks who have heard of this musical genre, often what immediately comes to mind is the early music (and often album covers) of The Beach Boys, and doubtlessly the “King of All Surf Rock,” the incomparable Dick Dale, whose music and songs are equated with that iconic lonesome surfer image, such as the one depicted on the film poster for 1966’s Endless Summer. A music to go with images indelibly etched into our conscience
Portland, Oregon’s Susan Surftone is a former real estate agent and attorney who has led her own stellar group, The SurfTones, through many many album releases—at least thirteen—as Susan and The SurfTones.

From Without A Word (1995), Thunderbeach (1996) and This Ain’t No Beach Party (1999) and onto later classics like 2007’s There She Goes Again—Susan and The SurfTones Play The VU (Velvet Underground), Susan has stayed the course of her sound without tiring or endlessly repeating any cliched version of what in the wrong hands could become something dragged out and beaten into the sand.
