About Samantha Crain
With their debut full-length, Songs in the Night, Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers deliver a shudderingly beautiful unique batch of songs in a style that's been described as "meshing freak folk with a deep-seated, dust-bowl soul."
The 22-year-old Shawnee, OK native's haunting voice, well-chosen words and emotional depth ring true in a way that sets her apart from most artists of her generation. Her critically acclaimed 2008 debut release, The Confiscation EP, on North Carolina independent label Ramseur Records (Avett Brothers) brought her music to a national audience and found her added to the Hotel Café tour and featured as one of Paste Magazine's up-and-coming artists.
Songs In the Night was recorded in five days at Asheville, NC's Echo Mountain Studios with producer Danny Kadar (Grizzly Bear, My Morning Jacket). The album captures the organic, rural feel of the sessions, with songs that wander confidently in the badlands where abrasive, jangly indie rock and smooth, whispery folk meet.
