Susan Crowe is a Canadian folk singer-songwriter born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She lived for many years in Toronto and Vancouver but now has returned to her birthplace Halifax.

She has received two Juno Award nominations, and nominations for both the Western Canadian Music Awards and East Coast Music Awards.

In 1994, after being away from music for more than a decade[citation needed], Crowe returned to writing. That led to her first album, This Far From Home, which was chosen by Vancouver’s Georgia Straight as one of the top albums of the year. It was subsequently nominated for a Juno Award in the Roots/Traditional category. Crowe returned to the festival circuit and recorded a second album in 1996, The Door to the River. Her third album, A Pilgrim’s Mirror, received a Western Canadian Music Award nomination.

In October 2003, Crowe released her fourth CD, Book of Days, produced by Danny Greenspoon, which garnered her nominations from the East Coast Music Awards and the 2004 Juno Awards, for Best Roots/Traditional Solo Recording. It also won her Music Nova Scotia’s award for Best Female Artist.

Her recent CD Greytown (Corvus 2009), also produced by Greenspoon, features 10 original songs. In November 2009, Susan was named English Songwriter of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for her work on Greytown.

Crowe's early single, Too much moon/You became my dream from 1978, is now highly collectible.
