Samantha Crain

Samantha Crain - Words and Music - 2013

by Kara Manning

To Samantha Crain, the flaws in life are something to be embraced and reflected upon, and for her new album Kid Face, the Oklahoma songwriter wasn't afraid to look in the mirror for stories to tell. She also continued to draw inspiration from the songs of the talented and troubled Jason Molina, who sadly passed away soon after this interview was recorded. But from dark times come some beautiful songs, and in Samantha's able hands and voice, the results are stark, honest, and somehow both heartbreaking and hopeful.
