Samantha Savage Smith
Samantha Savage Smith is a singer, songwriter, and musician from Calgary who
deals in glistening nuggets of pop songcraft, confessional yet subtly playful lyrical
themes, and an evolving vision of musical dressings that recall choice bits of Roxy
Music, Angel Olsen, and Land of Talk. The new album Fake Nice is a shimmering
collection of multi-hued songs brought to life by Smith and co-producer Chris
Dadge (Alvvays, Chad Van Gaalen), alongside guests such as Scott Munro
(Preoccupations), Ryan Bourne (Ghostkeeper), and Edmonton’s Marlaena Moore.
Her live band is comprised of the cream of Calgary’s ever-ripe music community
(including members of Reuben & The Dark, Blue Odeur & Lab Coast) and have
shared stages with the likes of Cate Le Bon, M Ward, Hayden, Couer de Pirate, and
Basia Bulat. Fake Nice will be released by Saved By Vinyl on LP, CD, and digital &
streaming platforms on April 22, 2022.
