Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers - Songs in the Night


None May 14th, 2009

margin: auto 0in;">That is not to say that Crain's pensive, evocative songwriting is washed out by richer instrumentation. The majority of the songs are still stripped bare, pushing her earnest vocals to the foreground, as heard on the album's opening and closing tracks, "Rising Sun" and "The Dam Song." The bookends seem to illustrate a duel between the two conflicting sides of her songwriting: hopeful sentimentality and weathered tragedy.


"Songs in the Night" is a clear progression for Crain as she adjusts her songwriting to accommodate a full band, but fans will be relieved that the Oklahoma native's soul remains firmly intact."”Charles Martin
