Sam Phillips has a new album coming out and this is the first taste of what is to come. It's called How Much Is Enough? She also has a live concert film shot at Largo at the Coronet in LA, it's available on her website. Sam began her musical life as Leslie, she was a contemporary Christian artist for a while, but felt constrained creatively and spiritually, so she changed her name to Sam and started again. Her final Christian album was produced by record producer, and her future husband, T Bone Burnett, who helped her craft her signature sound. 

Sam is now married to violinist and Section Quartet founder Eric Gorfain, and they collaborate on many projects.

Another musician worthy of mention is Anna Calvi, whose new album, Hunter, comes out today. This album contains a set of songs about desire, gender and control. Calvi's music is both dreamy and menacing at times. She's a unique singer in a sea of overly-familiar sounding vocalists, and her guitar playing underscores the way she sings. Great stuff. Have listened twice today and am enthralled with what I'm hearing
