Editorial Reviews

Samantha Crain hails from Oklahoma, the state that birthed both The Flaming Lips and Woody Guthrie; she writes with both the brazen conviction of the latter and the unflinching creative ambition of the former. Hers is a folks tradition indebted to Radiohead as much as Bob Dylan, and a literary sense more in keeping with Carson McCullers than her songwriting contemporaries. Crain is earthy and spiritual, able to convey hope YET unafraid to confront despair. Her sound is deeply rural and southern; itinerant and urban. Lyrics of disaster and dark times peacefully coexist with anthems of community and reconciliation.

This young Choctaw singer-songwriter is no stranger to the road and to making things happen for herself: Crain completed dozens of self-releases and several national tours before signing to Ramseur and a national booking agency. She has already developed the unique sound and old soul sensibility that colors her slightly eerie songs, collected as a musical novella on her EP The Confiscation (out July 22 on Ramseur Records, home to the Avett Brothers, the everybodyfields, and others...)

I hate country and I just have a mild interest in folk. Having said that I can't praise Samantha Crain's work enough. I never heard of her until I saw her open up on the pier in Santa Monica in the summer of 2008. What I saw was a very young and humble Samantha trio performing uncommonly well. Her voice resonated so soothingly it conveyed proficiency only found in seasoned vocalists. Her own guitar accompaniment was very effective and delivered so relaxed with no signs of strain. It kind of made me long again for singer/songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. I'm expecting bigger things from this artist so keep your eyes and ears open for her.

This is one of the most sonically interesting offerings from a singer-songwriter I've heard in a long time--it's way more interesting than your standard acoustic-guitar offerings, and Ms. Crain has a truly unique lyrical voice, a real literary innovator. You won't be disappointed.

This musical Novella is an absolutely delightful gem. Samantha Crain's deep earthy vocals are beautifully rendered against her strong song craft. The extra depth added from the lyrical narrative successfully invokes an eerie otherworldly quality that makes this collection downright addictive. Each song weaves music, vocals and lyrics into stunning emotional landscapes that I have found simply mesmerizing.

Samantha Crain's voice is rich, warm and inviting, she most certainly has a bright future ahead of her and I eagerly anticipate hearing more from this captivating contemporary Choctaw folk singer/songwriter. Highly recommended! Amazon offers this EP as an MP3 Download at a significantly better value: The Confiscation EP, A Musical Novella by Samantha Crain

Samantha Crain is a great artist.
I'll buy every one she releases.
She continues to make ground in notoriety and hopefully someday she will be a household name.
