Though she´s been singing for most of her life, Susan Cowsill has never gone solo before - unless you count a couple of early ´70s singles that you´d have to hire a detective to find. Now, after her famed childhood with the Cowsills, her ten years with the Continental Drifters and too many guest appearances to list, Susan has finally recorded her first solo album, entitled Just Believe It.
Not many people were singing on hit singles and touring the world when their friends were still in kindergarten, but The Cowsills became a cherished part of ´60s pop culture. As the role model for television´s Partridge Family, and a fine act in their own right, they had three top-ten singles with -Hair,- -The Rain, the Park and Other Things (Flower Girl),- and -We Can Fly.- Soon after those successes, Susan went into her first retirement at the tender age of 12.
The ´80s found Susan working with cult figure Dwight Twilley, her harmonies adding sparkle to many of Twilley´s greatest tracks, including his hit single -Girls.- Pop lovers could also spot her guesting with Redd Kross and the Smithereens. In the early ´90s The Cowsills launched a fullfledged reunion, with new songs in a solid powerpop vein, and released the Global album, becoming cult heroes all over again. More guest appearances by Susan during this time were on two Hootie and the Blowfish records, Jules Shear, Kate Jacobs, and Giant Sand.
