PHILADELPHIA, PA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Ramseur Records recording artist Samantha Crain will be the featured artist on WXPN’s “World Café Live” show on Tuesday, October 6 at 2 pm ET. The 24-year-old, Shawnee, OK native’s haunting voice, well-chosen words and emotional depth ring true in a way that sets her apart from most artists of her generation, with The New York Times describing her as having “a voice that traverses the space between Gillian Welch and Regina Spektor.” Crain’s debut Ramseur EP, The Confiscation: A Musical Novella, just earned her the “Songwriter of the Year” Nammy Award (Native American Grammy), with the EP receiving three Nammy nominations in all!
World Café Live can be heard nationwide on over 200 stations and can also be accessed online Monday through Friday, 2pm to 4pm EST, at www.xpn.org/listen-live/listen-live. Late in the day of broadcast, the audio will be available on the National Public Radio website: www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=39&agg=1.
Crain will be heading into the studio this winter to work on a full-length release for early 2010 and is currently playing dates on the West Coast. Tickets are also available now for "Cayamo: A Journey Through Song," a musical cruise featuring Crain, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Buddy Miller, Brandi Carlile and more in February, 2010.
