Read Mary Pauline Lowry's feature article on Susan and Too Far in The Huffington Post HERE.

"With Too Far she's delivered an instrumental album in which none of the songs sound the same, and one that will be as appealing to dedicated surf guitar fans as it is to those less familiar with the genre...As a whole, Too Far stands as both a revival of the genre and a testament to the fact that a woman can bring extraordinary talent and contemporary creativity to the classic, traditionally male world of surf rock."

- Mary Pauline Lowry, The Huffington Post (Read the full feature article HERE.)

"...Her music will one day be as classic as those artists of the past that have influenced her."

- Robert Jaz, Forces of Geek

"SurfTone evinces such a mastery over her instrument, it's hard to believe there's anything she can't do. In fact, Too Far is an album that's so alive with style, verve and innovation, it may very well singlehandedly revive the genre."

- Alex Green, Caught In The Carousel

"Her new album "Too Far" redefines surf guitar for a new generation."

- Kevin McGovern, Fear and Loathing in Long Beach

"Susan Surftone is the new Dick Dale."

- Ginger Coyote, Punk Globe

"She's the undisputed queen of immersive, garage-influenced, instrumental third-wave surf-rock, delivered with all the velocity of a punk show and a swaggering stage presence that has more in common with the lineage of bad-ass lady guitarists SurfTone's clearly embedded in than it does with the puka-shelled passivity you might typically associate with surf guitar."

- Ellen Cushing, East Bay Express (San Francisco)

"It's a modern take on the '60s surf music legacy, with elements of punk, rockabilly and classic rock thrown in for good measure... SurfTone's guitar timbre is liquid, crystal-clear and succinct, an alluring combination of such practitioners of the form as the Ventures' Bob Bogle and Don Wilson crossed with jazz 'lounge' players Charlie Christian and Johnny Smith."

- Roy Trakin, HITS Daily Double (Read the full review here. )

"On her new album Too Far, her prowess is beyond reproach."

- Lee Zimmerman, Blurt
