News & Gigs Biography Music Video Press Contact

Susanna Risberg is one of the most distinguished and accomplished guitarists from Sweden of her generation. Merely at age 26, she has already been performing professionally for over 15 years, and won numerous prestigious awards.

”She is one of the most talented students I have ever worked with: a brilliant and fearless improviser, a wonderful composer in both pop as well as jazz idioms” - Professor Mick Goodrick

"I appreciate that she with no doubt will become one of Sweden's foremost guitarists" - Janne Schaffer 2007

”Sweden's Susanna Risberg …… stakes a strong claim as a potentially significant new arrival in contemporary jazz …… Many of her pieces have pleasingly askew melodic lines and rhythmic frameworks that shift between the dynamic and static, introducing welcome subtleties into moments when the improvisations reach fever pitch. Risberg has some of the piercing, steely tonal richness of maverick players in the mould of Gábor Szabó, and she deconstructs themes with an eye-of-the-needle precision, finding myriad phrasal variations, often in volleys of quicksilver sixteenth notes, while keeping tight on the pulse of the music.” – Kevin Le Gendre, Jazzwisemagazine.com

”The only male music references meets resistance in the live accompaniment guitarist Susanna Risberg’s cool existence, without a single word she affects the entire play.” - Maina Arvas, Dagens Nyheter (Review of ”LEIF”)

”Here there is fiery guitar playing that really gets you in the gut…. She grabs a hold of you who listen and guides you through the structure of the music.” - Johan Hauknes, salt peanuts*
