Violinist Susan Chatman, a Chicago native, has been an active studio and live performance musician in Los Angeles for the past 25 years.
Focusing on her main passion of commercial music, Ms. Chatman has performed on and contracted for numerous TV shows such as the Grammys, American Music Awards, MTV Awards, BET Awards and American Idol. She has also played on countless Phono/TV/Movie recordings with a wide range of artists including Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Justin Timberlake and Snoop Dogg.
Susan is the founder of the recording group Nu World Strings, which consists of a diverse and talented string section who can play to a groove.
During her frequent hometown visits to Chicago, she often found herself asking why they didn’t have more recording sessions. After brainstorming with her colleagues Katherine and Rich, Third Coast Music was born with the goal of drawing more awareness and bringing the recording industry to the great city of Chicago.
