Her last two albums, self titled release Susan Hickman & Louder than Words Vol 1 were both critically acclaimed and received attention from various high level outlets from Country Weekly to Dreamwest. Regarding her single Hell Still Ain’t Frozen Over, Music Row Magazine had this to say—
“She’s quite a vocalist, with a delivery as sure and true as an arrow. The throaty breaks in her performance are perfect for the heartache in this finely crafted power ballad. The production builds splendidly in the choruses. Excellent work all around. Well worth your spins and your support.”-Robert K Oermann, Music Row Magazine
As Hickman reflects on her gypsy lifestyle she shares she has done a lot of soul searching. She has taken time to discover herself as a person and then as an artist, though she cleverly mentions they often fight with one another. Only in her thirties, Hickman seems wise beyond her years and has a bright career ahead of her. She is a strong role model for women everywhere, showing them anything is possible when you live out your story with a strong will and a big heart.
