Today she is predicted to become one of Sweden's leading guitar players .” This was the Jury’s motivation when the Swedish Radio awarded Guitarist Susanna Risberg the prestigious Jazzkatten’s Newcomer of The Year-prize, in October 2015.

At age 25, Susanna Risberg has already managed to perform as soloist with several big bands and symphony orchestras, toured and recorded with numerous pop stars, won the Hagström scholarship for Guitarists twice (among other awards and scholarships), and studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, and at Berklee College of Music, where she, among other things won the prestigious "Jimi Hendrix Award ’11”.
