Young singer songwriter Samantha Crain and her track "Traipsing Through The Aisles" are our choice for 'Video & Song of the Week' this week. Crain and her band the Midnight Shivers released her Confiscation EP this past July, which has been garnering a slow and study build the last few months. It's likely that Crain will see her star rise even further in the coming months as she will be taking part in the newest edition of the 'Hotel Cafe Tour' , where she will be sharing the stage with the likes of Ingrid Michaelson, Thao Nguyen, Meiko and Rachael Yamagata. In the past, the tour has been a launching ground for more than a few artists to reach wider recognition and added exposure. With a voice like Crain's it's only a matter of time before she joins the ranks of her more well known peers.
