Shawnee singer-songwriter Samantha Crain has released the music video for her gorgeous ballad “The Pattern Has Changed.” It is the second song from her third full-length album, “Kid Face,” to get a video.
John Hanson shot and directed the video for “The Pattern Has Changed,” which is simple but achingly poignant, in contrast to the high-tech, flippy fun of Samantha’s video for “Never Going Back.”
“Kid Face” is the follow-up to 2010′s “You (Understood),” which received praise from Rolling Stone, SPIN, New York Times and NPR and made my top 10 list for that year.
It’s a busy weekend for Samantha: She will play at 4:15 today at the Sailor Jerry Stage at the free Norman Music Festival. For more information, click here.
She also will play a free concert from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Tulsa’s Guthrie Green urban park, 111 E Brady Street. The concert lineup also will feature NMF performers JD McPherson, Ripple Green and Ramsay Midwood and is planned in conjunction with this weekend’s grand opening of the Woody Guthrie Center, across the street from the Guthrie Green in the burgeoning Brady Arts District.
