Samantha Crain of the Midnight Shivers Endorses Sierra Guitars!

Charleston, SC, July 9, 2009– Sierra Guitars is happy to announce guitarist and singer-songwriter Samantha Crain of Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers as the newest endorser of Sierra Guitars! Samantha plays the Sierra Sequoia Guitar in Vintage Sunburst.

After officially signing an agreement with Sierra Guitars this month, Samantha Crain remarked, “The Sierra Sequoia in Vintage Sunburst is so striking and sturdy, just what I need in a guitar for the road. It sounds excellent through my amp, but also has beautiful dynamics unplugged as well.”

Samantha Crain is the Oklahoma-born lead singer, songwriter, and guitar player for indie rock/americana band, Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers. Their new LP, Songs In the Night, has been highly acclaimed by Rolling Stone, PASTE Magazine, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Songs In the Night is the account of this excavation for Samantha Crain, a 22-year-old Oklahoma-based songwriter. Crain’s full-length debut is the follow up to 2008’s The Confiscation EP -- and her second effort to be released on independent North Carolina label, Ramseur Records. Along with her band the Midnight Shivers (Jacob Edwards, Andrew Tanz and Stephen Sebastian), Crain recorded all eleven tracks in five days at Echo Mountain Studios with producer Danny Kadar (Grizzly Bear, My Morning Jacket, The Avett Brothers).

Songs In the Night wanders confidently in the badlands where abrasive, jangly indie rock and smooth, whispery folk meet. Crain's distinct voice presents each song with an unfeigned fervor as it rises and falls over the panorama painted by the Midnight Shivers and their roots-infused arrangements. As the album unfolds, the listener can rest easy knowing they are not experiencing illusions—and this band can be comforted with the reassurance they have been genuine.
