Susan is a musician and composer based in South Wales. Her long and varied discography showcases her many talents as composer, performer and, in this case, interpreter. Here she pays homage to the compositions of Erik Satie through this set of beguilling arrangements. (from the Quiet World website)

A seven track set featuring extracts from Pieces Froides No.1, Gymnopedies No.1 and Gnossiennes No2 & 4 by Eric Satie. Recorded summer 2011 on a Yamaha P70 portable piano with vocals from Olivier Preiur.

The title A Kiss For The Umbrella Man references Satie's fascination with the umbrella, he owned over 100 and would regularly carry one with him. When it rained he would put it under his coat to protect it!
