Samantha Crain joins host Stephen Kallao

In 2017, a series of car accidents left Samantha Crain without the ability to use her hands – She couldn’t even pick up her guitar. After a long journey toward recovery, Crain recently made her return to music, with the album, A Small Death, released last year, and now, a brand new EP, called I Guess We Live Here Now. Crain joins host Stephen Kallao to talk about perseverance, creativity, and the pandemic – And we’ll hear some of the new music, performed live.
