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 she’s Boston’s best kept secret with her new album September Sun. Her songwriting shines and her voice drips with soul and emotion." (Jess Phaneuf, WUMB)
