Samantha Crain — Kid Face


Folk

Zach Hale
Take away the album name — and its cover — and you’d never know Kid Face was released by a 26-year-old. The most alluring weapon in her arsenal, Samantha Crain’s voice resides somewhere between Nico’s husky croon and Joni Mitchell’s tuneful elegance.

Nash bridges

It all starts with a song, but where does the song start? For some OKC songwriters, it’s a Nashville-based nonprofit.


Music

Alyssa Grimley
Ever think about what percent of a song purchase actually goes to the artist? Local songwriter Curtis Stover makes it his business to, as a coordinator for the Oklahoma City chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association International.

Joshua Boydston

Tom Skinner — Tom Skinner


Country

Louis Fowler
Sincerity is nearly dead in songwriting. The image of the earnest singer with eyes tightly shut and a crack in his voice as he plunges to emotional depths has become a joke.

John Moreland — In the Throes


Rock

Joshua Boydston
With the soul of a poet and the look of a Sons of Anarchy extra, Tulsa’s John Moreland has been gifted the sort of gravely, booming voice that does Bruce Springsteen proud and a similar understanding of the universal human experience. It’s made for some fantastic records — both as a solo artist and with his dissolved Black Gold Band — and In the Throes is his best yet.
