Sue Medley

Sue Medley can belt it out with the best of them. One night at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the singer did just that, joining Eric Clapton, George Harrison and others on stage for the all-star “Bobfest” tribute and roaring through a couple of Dylan numbers in a memorable performance with American heartland rocker John Mellencamp.

But Medley’s ace up her sleeve – and what really sets her apart is the way she can turn a vulnerable lyric into the most heart-wrenching ballad you’ve ever heard. Tough and tender, sweet and seasoned - combining those qualities to establish herself as a formidable artist in the tradition of Southern-style icons like Bonnie Raitt and Melisa Etheridge.
