Cassie Morgan | Though the songs are hardly all doom and gloom, they do speak of loss, regret and betrayal as well as poverty, oppression and the confined roles of women. The delicate melodies of the guitar capture the root of the songs and complement the half-sung/half-whispered vocals, just as our truths and half-truths are revealed instinctively in whispers and hushed voices to soften the blow.

Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers | Sometimes music is a collision of opposites. Realities clash and coexist, and the tension that results is scary and strange, but undeniably beautiful. Maybe that’s why Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers embody so many conflicting unities and clashing identities. With a blow-your-hair-back vocal presence the that occasionally yields to whisper-soft vulnerability, Samantha Crain unites the sounds of confidence and desperation.
