Samantha Farrell's ever evolving sound is an intersection of jazz, folk, pop and poetry. Her tone is unique and yet familiar all at once; at times playfully lilting and undulating, other times a sexy murmur, and a raspy declaration.
She picked up guitar as a sophomore at Bowdoin College and immediately started performing her original material for enthusiastic audiences. Upon graduation in 2005, she moved to Los Angeles where she released her first album, 'Spiritus.' Three of the songs were placed on national television shows.
In 2008, she caught the ear of LeRoi Moore, the saxophonist of the Dave Matthews Band, who was in the midst of producing and developing her next album in Charlottesville, Virginia when he tragically and suddenly passed away. In October of 2009, 'Luminous,' was independently released and through word of mouth alone, charted #7 on the national pop iTunes charts.
She has since followed that up with two EPs, 'In Between Stories' (2010) and 'Softly Swooning World' (2013), with her latest album, 'September Sun' (2016), being described as "showcasing her capacity to weave lyrical rigor with sumptuous abandon... we hear a voice of dusk and smoke in conflict with the very ghosts their convergence has birthed."
