Samantha Farrell is a Boston based singer-songwriter who has been quietly staking out her own middle ground between folk, jazz, and R&B infused indie-pop, to much critical acclaim.
Her latest release, September Sun, entirely self-produced and engineered at her home studio, has been making waves locally and is in rotation at WUMB, where DJ and evening host Jess Phaneuf has said ”she 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. “ Blending pensive lyrics, lush and lonely string arrangements with sparse jazz piano, honeyed tenor sax and urgent pop melodies, Farrell is never in a hurry; the album is a languid groove and a folksy stroll, taking the listener with her through the internal world that is the turning of the season.
Farrell burst onto the music scene in 2009 with her album Luminous, produced by LeRoi Moore, the late saxophonist of the Dave Matthew’s Band. It shot to #7 on the iTunes pop charts, while five of the songs were placed on major television shows. She is currently planning an east coast tour starting in late October.
