Trevor McShane, the prolific singer and songwriter
Southern California brings a classic back to life.

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- It's quite a trick to take a song almost 70 years old, redo it and outdo it. But

"It's own merits" included a recent sold out show at the legendary Write Off
Room in Los Angeles and almost 200,000 views on YouTube for his song
"Masterpiece" with "Susie Darlin'" climbing right up behind it.

Trevor says, I loved "Susie Darlin'" since I was a little boy. It's a timeless
tune musically and lyrically, and a thrill for me to honor it and bring to new
