Recorded at North Hollywood’s Sound of Pisces Music studio, The LA Sessions EP is Spanish guitarist Susan Santos’ latest deep-dive into rootsy blues. Early singles Dirty Money and Somebody to Love were very much a vintage affair, with a mouthwatering mix of Americana flavors and '60s psychedelia. 

The new tracks were produced by Fabrizio Grassi from Supersonic Blues Machine – the Billy Gibbons-fronted supergroup who chose Santos as the opening act on their last European tour, and even invited her up to jam for her hometown show in Madrid.
