Her voice is amazing.

"The pattern has changed
Not over time, but a shift in the ground"
-S. Crain (The pattern has changed)
----------------------

Samantha Crain is a fictional writer turned singer-songwriter from Oklahoma. This is her third LP (plus an EP) and it's an Alt-country/Americana/Indie-rock hybrid. My impression is that country and folk seem to be where her "natural" tendencies lie. Instrumentally and vocally, her previous works are very, very catchy -She understands well how to craft a powerful hook! On 'Kid Face', the instrumental composition strives for a warm and endearingly melodic informing of the narrative. The LP's overarching frame of mind is one of thoughtful considerations as well as true-to-everyday-life sincerity and "sensibility" rather than the predictable singer-songwriter fare of cataloging life's disappointments followed briskly by a floral monologue of indignation and/or melancholy. That she somehow maintains her disposition toward thoughtfulness and sincerity, despite doing a fair amount of "cataloging" herself, is as welcomed as it is innovative.

S. Crain harbors the "proper" writer's tendency to (1) frames lyrics as stories and (2) paint a contextual portrait. She has commented on how this is largely an autobiographic work though she isn't always the center of attention or does she spend all her time musing about the catastrophes of life. Everyday themes, but more importantly everyday imagery, abound. She's even homespun (that I say to flatter) when she does speak directly to her anguish. Track 5's lyrics bear this out, "Cleaning the sink because I can't think of nothing to do/I'm going to shows and counting my toes and crying over you".

Crain's compositions are set well, good acoustic backing, although there is too much channel separation of instruments on some of the tunes. Given the folk-blues traditions, her music has the virtue of not sounding imitative, sometimes even memorable lines. The lyrics are full, progressive, showing a narrative poet who has turned to music. Samantha Crain's voice is quite unique, hard to describe, limited in range, but full with good phrasing and modulation.

I find Samantha Crain exhilarating . Her originality has genius interlaced inside of it. It is the type that breaks through barriers. I grew up listening to Bod Dylan in the 1960's, he broke down barriers the most in his era. The many musical worlds he reached into, explored and added so much to, were refreshing, beautiful and good. Dylan did not dominate and homogenate music. He was the challenger. By 1963 or 1964 folk music had opened up, and by 1970 we had experienced 8 unforgettable years of his music and music had crossed over in so many directions.. I cannot tell you that Samantha Crain will have anywhere at all the influence or even the shadow of the success of a Dylan. I can only tell you she is good, refreshing, and beautiful, and in so many ways that should matter. The Europeans must have noticed. She has been touring Western Europe for months, from Scandinavia, Britain, Ireland, Germany and France. My impression is she is. unknown to most Americans and her following is mainly regional in America. I hope she finally gets the acceptance I believe she deserves.

I discovered her just a few years ago because I was exploring American Indian music and musicians. I hope and even pray that her ancestry does not limit her appeal here. I can only think it may. American bigotry is not only centered in the slaves from Africa. It first started with the annihilation of Indian villages and their inhabitants, and of whole Indian tribes. After the Revolution the Native people, the Indians had no standing American court or any foreign court either..
