Tuesday Tip-Off: Samantha Crain

It’s no secret that we here at PE love Samantha Crain, so it shouldn’t be hard to imagine our delight when she announced on ye olde social medias that she has a new EP on the way. The criminally underrated singer-songwriter’s I Guess We Live Here Now will be out April 9th (available for pre-order now) and you can, nay – you WILL, check out the first single “Bloomsday” in pure audio form above, or in that crazy newfangled music video format below.

Talk Thursday To Me – Samantha Crain

One of the best parts of bringing Postcard Elba out of cryostasis is that we can catch up with old friends of the blog. It’s especially sweet when one of those old friends just dropped a career changing album that it is destined to make many a Best Of list at the end of the year and/or decade.

Samantha Crain’s new album “A Small Death” is a gorgeous, lush, intimate album that is a watershed moment for an artist who has consistently released great albums. We were stoked to sit down and chat with Samantha about the new album and what she’s up to now.

Rearview Mirror – Postcard Elba

Rearview Mirror is our annual look back at the year in music from our friends in and around the business.  Musicians, managers, roadies, superfans, bloggers etc..

This year we’re upping the vanity aspect of it by sprinkling in our favorite posts of the past year, which you may have missed the first time around.  Our pick for May was one of our random trips outside of the Elba bunker to appreciate live music, and oh what a great trip it was when we caught a stripped down set from Samantha Crain at The Bishop.  Let’s enjoy it once more together.
