Samantha Elin--Songwriter-Singer: Home

"Samantha amazes with her ability to weave captivating stories in melody and rhyme. She breathes life into characters and situations one remembers long after the song has ended."

--Danny Faragher, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (Ringo Starr, Peppermint Trolley Company, Camper Van Beethoven)

They are the seekers, the dreamers, men and women with hearts full of longing for something or someone. These ordinary but somehow grand characters reside in Samantha Elin's songs, amidst a musical landscape of alternately catchy and somber folk, country, pop, rock, blues, and styles in between.

A California-based songwriter, Samantha's songs are brought to life by some of L.A.'s top session and live players, e.g., John Palmer (Chuck Berry, Wanda Jackson); Bob Gothar (Micky Dolenz, J.D. Souther); Don Heffington (Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris); Danny Faragher (Ringo Starr, Camper Van Beethoven); and Dan McNamara (Brian Wilson, Roger McGuinn). She sings some songs herself and has turned to some of the best--like Nicole Gordon, Hirth Martinez, and John Cowsill--for others.
