About

SAMANTHA

Samantha McKaige is a guitar playing, Americana singing, folk loving songwriter from Seattle. She takes inspiration from the woods and peaks of the Pacific Northwest, the beaches of Northern California, and the rivers of the Rockies.

Samantha is pursuing songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she just released her debut Album, Bury Me Please in the Puget Sound, a collection of songs written from the grass and the sand of Washington's San Juan Islands.

Samantha's journeys and heartaches have inspired her lyrics, and her eclectic sound reflects her musical influences.

Samantha has opened for artists such as Ezra Bell, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Suzzy Roche, and Copilot, at historic and esteemed venues such as Brighton Music Hall in Boston and The Sunset Tavern in Seattle. She performs solo or with a full band of talented musicians, rounding out her sound with electric and steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, trumpet, keyboard, backing vocals, and drums. Paired with her originals, Samantha also performs uniquely arranged covers of her favorite musicians, such as Caamp, Noah Kahan, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Brandi Carlile, Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch and The Highwomen.
