According to ameicansongwriter.com: The cowgirl look is not something she bought at Sears. Not the red boots, the big black hat, the distressed fringe jacket. I have no idea where she got the horseshoe she’s holding. Unless she’s friends with the village smithy. And yet the eyeglasses can throw you off. They’re hip. And they could only have been made in the here and now. But it’s all a bit like Carter Sampson herself. That and her new disc, Lucky. There are classic elements of the singer-songwriter movement of the ‘70s, references to the old west, but the girl has the sharp, detached eye of someone who walks among us. It’s a dichotomy. But it works.
“I have a pretty varied background,” Sampson says by way of explanation. “I grew up in Oklahoma, fell in love with music, although I didn’t make the cut for the 7th grade choir. My dad played a little guitar and when I borrowed it I just fell in love. I went to art school in Boston and busked in the subways there for a couple of years. It really sharpened my performing skills. Ultimately I felt my roots pulling me. I’m an Okie. So I went back home and started making records. Like Lucky.
She also mentions influences as diverse as Patty Griffin and Jason Isbell. And she’s especially enamored of Ani DiFranco, who has built a successful career on her own terms. Still, she’s digested all these things thoroughly. And made a personal gem of an Alt/Country album. In other words she’s disparate, not desperate.
