Samantha Savage Smith (2014)

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Calgary’s toughest cookie is singer/songwriter/guitarist Samantha Savage Smith, whose sweet musings and quiet, guitar-laden indie rock call to mind the weird Canadiana of Eric’s Trip and Julie Doiron’s solo undertakings. Live and in the studio, she’s backed by a who’s who of Calgary’s best: Lorrie Matheson, Chad VanGaalen, Woodpigeon and more.
