‘I think you might have just killed the pretty cowgirl’

Following previous critical acclamation with her band, The Long Shadows, 2019 sees Sam Coe heading in a fresh musical direction as a solo artist. Sam Coe creates gritty, dark country music - honest songs that transform into raucous and chaotic sound, weathered with a throwback vibe. Refusing to comply with a traditional country sound, “Comeback Queen” is a cornucopia of noise which wouldn’t exist without a traditional country influence. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Brandi Carlile, Margo Price, Larkin Poe, First Aid Kit, Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris, “Comeback Queen” is a statement showing how country music can evolve to include so many other elements from Soul, to Blues to Rock.
