Former FBI Agent Turned Surf Guitarist Susan Surftone Release "2nd To One" - A Take On Elvis Presley's Collection Of Great B-Sides


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Former FBI agent turned surf guitarists / singer/songwriter, Susan Surftone released her brand new EP "2nd To One" February 6, 2018. https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/susansurftone14
The album, an homage to Elvis Presley (Surftone's idol) is a take-off on Elvis' collection of great B-sides called "2nd To None". It features Darlene Koldenhoven, the nun with the tambourine from the "Sister Act" movies, who plays the piano on "One-Sided Love Affair".
"If a woman can be a credible Elvis Presley a woman can be anything she wants to be," says Susan Surftone!

From her FBI years to the time she spent as an Attorney for the NYPD assigned to the Tactical Narcotics Team in Harlem, and her prolific career as a surf guitarist, the out artist has a lot to say and is never afraid to say it. Having endured more than her fair share of misogyny and discrimination, she epitomizes the definition of women empowerment.

In the early '80s, SurfTone was an FBI agent in New York, chosen to monitor KGB agents assigned to UN headquarters. Fancy job, but she became worried about her future within the Bureau. For a lesbian, upward mobility was not going to come easily. But something other than the challenge of hiding her sexual orientation ultimately led to her resignation from the FBI … Elvis and The Beatles!

Indeed, leaving the FBI pushed SurfTone to form bands of her own. Susan and the Surftones went on to record more than 10 albums, became breakout stars in Europe and even had a couple of their songs featured on a season of The Real World.

Through the years she has always been a strong advocate of encouraging girls to play guitar and start bands. She continues now to be a social activist for women empowerment and LGBTQ rights.

Surftone has become an influential trailblazing voice in both the political arena and the LGBTQ community.
She's using a lifetime of lessons and musical talent to encourage other queer young women to sing out loud and strong.
