Harvard graduate, former Fortune 500 executive, and award-winning songwriter Susan Greenbaum offers up a richly realized 14-song collection that is quietly inspiring. Inflected with elements of country and contemporary folk, songs such as “Big”, “This Life”, “Walk In These Shoes”, “Magic”, “Penny on the Sidewalk”, and “He’s Not Leavin’” are among the best here. Greenbaum’s sense of humor reveals itself in unexpected ways in unexpected places and makes This Life a unique entry into the wider singer-songwriter oeuvre. Alternating perfectly between gravity and levity throughout Greenbaum reveals herself as a smart songwriter who doesn’t overthink or overfeel.
