Samantha Crain the haunting voice behind the music on KAOS 89.3 FM


Sunday, December 19 · 5:00pm – 6:00pm Join Raven and his guest Samantha  Crain as they explore the voice behind the music.

Samantha  Crain Bio:
Anais Nin said, “Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it.” That suggestion was the muse impelling the conception of Samantha Crain’s second LP, You (Understood). Each song on this album rests on a juncture with a person, a real person, and it recounts a particular episode of life wi…th that person. The scenes and the people are not especially unusual or stirring but the idea that the precise installment will never, in all of time, happen again was enough to interest Crain. She is taking a microscope to the simplest of human interactions and feelings, turning them over in her hands, looking at them from all angles, measuring them on all sides, and taking them apart, realizing they really are exceptional but only in the smallest ways.
