I have been a fan of Samantha Crain’s music for a while and I don’t think I talk about her enough. She has a new album called Kid Face (I believe a reference to the fact that she is often perceived as younger than she is) and it has some pretty great tunes. She strikes me as the kind of person that I would want to know before I even knew her, ya know? I don’t even know why I think this but I just do. It isn’t odd to find an artist who may seem grounded or “real” in the genre of folk or folk related music but that is where I place her. Of course her talent in making great music tends to sway me to thinking she is kinda awesome. I am rambling.
The new album has just come out via Ramseur Records and while I am not posting the official audio from the album, she had recorded the song Churchill (that appears on the new album) a while back with our friends at Halfway House Music. I recommend you swing by her website (see here) for more info and purchase options as well.
Visit her session over on Halfway House Music and you can grab the free mp3 download of this song as well as a Chris Bathgate cover.
You can also check out a really inventive video for the opening track from Kid Face called ‘Never Going Back’ here as well. Now, go, git!
