Susan Tedeschi continues to roll out video from her Just Won’t Burn 25th Anniversary Sessions. The latest sees the guitarist and vocalist performing “The Queen of the Blues” Koko Taylor’s “Voodoo Woman.”

Susan previously shared a video featuring her song “Friar's Point” from the Just Won’t Burn 25th Anniversary Sessions. The new video for “Voodoo Woman” fittingly begins with Susan cruising around the bayou in a boat.


Tedeschi also talked about the unexpected success of her 1998 album Just Won’t Burn:

“The success of the record was a surprise. We thought we would maybe sell 60,000 records. We sold 600,000 records and then I was somehow nominated for Best New Artist with the Grammys, which is category 4 if you’re into that stuff. And it was a big deal because it was 2000. I was up against Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Kid Rock and Macy Gray and everyone was like ‘who is this girl?’ She’s a blues artist, nobody knows me, everyone else had sold 10 million records, probably, 5 million records.

“I was lucky to sell half a million and that was really quite an accomplishment being that I wasn’t a pop star, I wasn’t doing what everybody wanted me to do. I wasn’t selling myself sexually cause you know a lot of that is sex appeal when it comes to being in the pop scene. I just never really went with all that. I just did my own thing. So I felt very very thankful and very lucky to have made my own record the way I wanted to do it and had a lot of fun doing it. Somehow, it brought me to that point. So it was very unexpected but it was a lot of fun.”
