Video: Samantha Crain – “We Are the Same”

Nelsonville recaps/reviews are on the way, but just wanted to share this. The “No-Fi Cabin” was one of my favorite spots to hang over the weekend, a great place to catch acts doing their thing unplugged and super-casual. This (shaky cellphone) vid of Samantha Crain should at least give you a taste of what the cabin was like.

“We Are the Same” is off Crain’s new record, You (Understood), out June 8 on Ramseur Records.
