A hollow body electric guitar is an instrument of contrasts. Ostensibly a jazz instrument, it fits delightfully well into rawer music and indie rock textures. Consequently, it is not a surprise that Sam Lynch has chosen these instruments for music that combines traditional folk influences with rough-hewn, detuned guitars and confessional lyrics. Her songs are personal, yet universal; calm with an edge. Traditional in structure and subject, but appealingly fresh sounding. Vocally, she resembles something of a blender mix of Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief, Andy Shauf and prime influence Fiona Apple. With her first album in the works, Sam Lynch is a striking new talent worth discovering.
