The "outsider musician" label was created with her: Susan Dietrich, better known as The Space Lady, possibly the best known synonymous and feminine to Moondog; Susan began her career in the 80s, just when she began busking on the sidewalks of Boston dressed exuberantly, sending messages of love and pacifism, accompanied by an accordion and making versions of some contemporary pop hits or classics of that time.

10 years later she moved to one of the cradles of America's idealistic without prejudice: San Francisco. There she purchased a Casio piano, some effects and a microphone with which she managed to raise to a new level the street musical proposal of the area, and give to her speech a unique personality. Her legend began taking some awareness in the past decade, when in 2000 Irwin Chusid included her in the compilation "Songs In The Key Of Z" dedicated to such extravagant and unknown figures like the Space Lady.
