CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED CHOCTAW-AMERICAN ARTIST SAMANTHA CRAIN’S NEW EP I GUESS WE LIVE HERE NOW OUT APRIL 9

Fresh off the heels of her critically-acclaimed 2020 LP A Small Death, Oklahoma-based Choctaw-American musician and songwriter Samantha Crain confirms a new EP, I Guess We Live Here Now, to be released April 9 on Real Kind Records/Communion.

For the EP, Crain drew inspiration from her Norman, OK neighborhood through the idea of “vacationing in your own backyard,” explaining how the pandemic found her re-discovering the beauty of her hometown. “There were alleyways I’d passed every day that I’d never noticed, flowering bushes that I’d never glanced at, and craftsman houses with porch cats and gardens… parks I’d never walked to the center of, trails I’d never walked, public statues I’d never turned towards. I felt like a tourist in my own town.”

Continuing on this theme, Crain will be giving away a prize of hand-selected items made and locally sourced in her home state of Oklahoma, with a total value worth over $1,000. The winner will be chosen from those who pre-order the EP; More info/pre-order HERE.

“I want to remember and celebrate the specific beauty of the complex place I live and the fascinating things being made here,” she says, “It will include art prints and objects by some of my favorite local artists, a guitar pedal from a local boutique pedal company, books by local authors and on local interest, local food products, and other goodies.”
