Jazz, Folk & Pop
Samantha Farrell vocals, guitar
Often, the first thing people say they notice about Samantha Farrell is a blonde shock of extremely curly hair. The second thing that people notice, and the thing they never forget, is her voice. We're thrilled to bring this Orange, MA, native home again to share her jazzy, folk-flavored pop with her friends, relatives, and fans in the North Quabbin area.
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 voted as one of WUMB radio's top 10 albums of 2016. "Samantha Farrell is proving once again that shes Bostons best kept secret with her new album September Sun. Her songwriting shines and her voice drips with soul and emotion." - Jess Phaneuf, WUMB
"Prodigious and undulating vocals that are delivered with rare, swinging passion." - Reflex Magazine
"Shes probably the best female singer-songwriter you still havent heard of." - NBC Los Angeles
"A liquor-honey voice, deft guitar work, and slightly melancholic tones that meld to form an aching and elegant aural tapestry." - Huffington Post
"One of the best female singers I have heardever." - Red Line Roots
"Every syllable is a symphony." - Dr. Roland Wiggins
"Farrell not only possesses an extremely fetching voice, she has mastered many vocal techniques and can control the sound and direction of many kinds of songs. Her songwriter's eye for detail is as clear as the purity of her voice." - CD reviewer Bill Copeland
