Susan Cowsill

Anyone who thought Susan Cowsill vanished along with family band the Cowsills may be surprised to learn that the family’s youngest sibling continues making music, both on her own and as a member of another communal combo, the Creekdippers. But the real surprise is that after the tragic deaths of her brothers Barry and Billy and the toll Hurricane Katrina took on her native New Orleans, her superb second solo album isn’t mired in bitterness or despondency. Even as songs like “ONOLA” and “Avenue of the Indians”—not to mention the cover of Barry’s “River of Love”—allude to the emotional damage these events wrought, Susan Cowsill ensures that her Lighthouse remains a beacon of inspiration.
