Melting Vinyl are very excited to welcome Full Time Hobby Records’ new signing, Samantha Crain to Brighton!

Touring in support of her the third full-length album, ‘Kid Face’, the 26 year old Oklahoma native has created a revelatory song cycle as expansive as the wide-open spaces her home state, and as intimate as a conspiratorial whisper. Recorded and mixed in just nine days in the San Francisco studio of producer John Vanderslice (the Mountain Goats, Spoon), this wildly original album stands as the definitive statement thus far from an uncommonly insightful, fearlessly honest young singer/songwriter.

The most apparent thematic thread running through the album is restlessness. The first-person narrators of these 11 songs are in constant motion, as they feel the tug of the far horizon or the need to escape from their present circumstances, ruminating about what may lie ahead and what they’re leaving behind—roots, family, a lover.

Don’t miss the chance to catch this rising star in such an intimate setting!
