Samantha Harlow‘s debut full-length record, Love Letters, brought together her songs with a stellar Nashville team, including co-producer, Kenny Vaughn. While studio and stage notables like Jen Gunderman, John McTigue, Mike Shannon, Wes Burkhart, Simon Roper and background vocals from Derek Hoke fill the sounds, Harlow’s songs maintain their simple, sad essence. Love Letters is a bit melancholy lyrically, yet it steers clear of tear-in-my-beer tunes or man-hating anthems. The production separates this record from singer-songwriter folk, but it easily falls back into a solo or trio for live interpretations of the songs. Look for Harlow to tour more throughout the summer and expand her reach, as her songs and performances develop and grow.
