Susan Cagle (born 1981 in Aruba) is a singer-songwriter, known best for her self-recorded album, The Subway Recordings.

The second-oldest of ten children, Cagle started performing in public stations in New York City, including Union Square, Grand Central Terminal and subway stations in Times Square. In addition to singing, Cagle plays the guitar in the majority of her performances, with her sister Caroline playing bass and her brother Jesse on second guitar.

Cagle began playing guitar at the age of 7, and by the age of 14 was writing poetry and songs. When older, she decided to leave her family and the Children of God group, at odds over their beliefs, and moved to New York. She soon began writing, recording music and performing in subway stations (her album, "The Subway Recordings", is cut from live shows).

During a show in the Herald Square subway station, Cagle was discovered by producer Jay Levine, who introduced her to then new president of Columbia Records, Steve Greenberg. She soon became his first signing in this placement.

Cagle and her band still tour and perform in New York's underground. Her album currently sells across the US, the first released single titled "Shakespeare". Susan has recently finished recording her new studio album, scheduled for release in August 2007.

On May 10, 2007, Susan Cagle and her band performed "Dear Oprah", an ode to billionaire talk show host Oprah Winfrey, on "Oprah". "Dear Oprah" features such lyrics as: "Dear Oprah, Have you ever felt like breakin’ down/ when there ain't no one who cares around/did ever you feel this way back in the day so blue/ what did you do?"

Many of her fans from the Subway in New York often wonder what happened to her band. Her band was a strength in her act during the "subway years" and after signing with the record label she went solo. Letting down the fans as many believed in the band as part of the American Dream due to the nature of the success and discovery.
