At just 26, Oklahoma-born singer-songwriter Samatha Crain is already four albums into her career (her first full-length, with since-disbanded Midnight Shivers, was produced by Danny Kadar and recorded at Echo Mountain). Crain's songs are simple but catchy, tugging at the emotions while still nudging the feet to dance. Her voice, unusual but instantly likable, is both rounded and impetuous. Crain plays The Grey Eagle on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Singer-songwriter William Elliot Whitmore (his newest album is Field Songs) headlines. 8:30 p.m., $10 in advance or $12 day of show. http://www.thegreyeagle.com.
