Product Description

Product Description

A wildly original album that stands out as a definitive statement, thus far, from an uncommonly insightful and fearlessly honest young singer songwriter. Produced by John Vanderslice, (The Mountain Goats & Spoon) - Crain has delivered an instantly accessible gem - enabling her to explore the full range of her achingly vulnerable voice, with lyric and song - in which she is the narrator throughout. The album's title is a nickname she closely identifies with, as she is regularly mistaken for a 16 year old and treated accordingly. 'It gives me a great insight into people's character' Crain says, 'and plenty of material as a songwriter'. The UK release will include a bonus EP. Although initially inspired by the sounds of her father's record collection, including Bob Dylan and Neil Young, an adolescent Crain took even greater solace in the music of her home state, from the Americana of Woody Guthrie to the sonic experiments of the Flaming Lips. Based in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and of Choctaw heritage Samantha has been building a following in the US and beyond over the last couple of years, including Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit who took her out on tour and have been long time supporters of her music. "For us, she is a role model and an inspiration. She is an amazing songwriter and a powerful live artist, full of energy and a great sense of humour. And what a voice!" - Klara and Johanna Söderberg (First Aid Kit) Samantha Crain will be coming to the UK later this year - dates to be announced - and available for sessions and face to face interviews - upfront of the already, eagerly anticipated UK release of KID FACE. Influenced by: Neil Young, Woody Guthrie, Jason Molina, Sufjan Stevens For fans of: Sharon Van Etten, Gillian Welch, First Aid Kit, Laura Marling

Heard the atmospheric 'For the miner' which immediately ignited my interest in this artist of whom I had no previous knowledge. Despite reading a less than glowing review of this album (along the lines of - another singer songwriter with nothing new to say) in a music magazine to which I subscribe I was sufficiently intrigued to search out further material. I was pleasantly surprised with what I found so bought the album. She has quite a deep expressive versatile voice which is used to good effect on a varied collection of atmospheric songs with excellent musical backing. There is also an additional disc containing 5 extra tracks of which 2 are demos of tracks on the main album. The first track is a jaunty country effort which is not representative of the rest of the album but the standard is high throughout. Particular favourites at the moment in addition to the aforementioned For the miner are the more delicate Paint and The pattern has changed and the livelier Kid face and Churchill. Nothing I would want to skip. Coincidentally saw her perform a song with Cory Chisel at a gig last night in London and can confirm her voice is something special.

After the refreshing creativity in "You (Understood)" which took grungy americana to new heights, "Kid Face" proves that Samantha is no one trick pony with a more folksy feel and a collection of great songs which show off her vocal versatility. This lady sings and plays from the heart with her own unique style while still tipping a nod to the genres of blues/folk/country/rock throughout the album. Samantha Crane is great live but also shows a good feel for what can be added by a full band and recording studio polish. She is here to stay!

A picture can tell a thousand words, or so the saying goes. The front cover of Samantha Crain’s new studio album Kid Face demonstrates its title, with the Oklahoma native poised in front of a den in the forest. Crain’s face is the essence of childhood. Her cheeks are rounded and a white shirt casts no shadow over tell tale womanly curves. To the uninitiated this is a photograph of a 12 year old, and not a woman of 27 years with two albums already under her belt. The image is meant to be a paradox. On paper, the content of Kid Face is portrayed as wise, beautiful and softened by the kind of strength only age can lend. All of this from a lady who’s somehow retained a youthful complexion.

Samantha Crain’s remit is folk and Americana; the kind influenced by 70s coffee house singer songwriters and modern acts like First Aid Kit and Jenny Owens Young, both of whom Crain has toured with in the past. Unfortunately, Crain lacks the road worthy character needed to deliver the genre at its best. For the large part the songs are wholly personal, but in many cases they’re also vapid and lacking substance. There’s no tale to grasp hold of and cherish as unique; no revelation of the soul and no country spiked mourning can be found on Kid Face. This proves to be a downside hard to overlook.

“Never Going Back” is a deceptive start to Kid Face, setting a scene of deliverance and redemption on the road that continues throughout the album. Scanning the list of titles thereafter, it’s easy to be lulled into a false sense of security. Following track “Taught to Lie” begins with a horse and bucket plod and promises a tale of deception and neglect. Unfortunately it surmounts to a geography-by-numbers of Crain’s travels, and little more.

Third album by Samantha Crain and it is fantastic, probably my favourite of her albums. All the songs are beautifully melodic and wonderfully arranged. I'd recommend her previous two albums as well.

The third album for Samantha Crain might just be her breakthrough, backed by the production of John Vanderslice this is a mature effort that contains dark moments and great melody. Crain's husky voice is beguiling and the country tinged Americana that's so dominant here reminds you of many influences without ever being derivative. For the Miner, Paint, Taught To Lie and Kid Face are tracks of darkness but with acoustic guitar and minimalist other instrumentation they really stick in the mind and will keep you coming back. The Pattern has changed is almost heartbreaking with its piano way back in the mix and the vocal cutting through and delivering a memorable performance.
This album has been available stateside some time now. It's worth checking out now it's available here, it certainly is a good album and hopefully will get a lot more notice than previous efforts.
