Album Notes
Samantha Echo is a mountain nymph who happens to sing and write songs sometimes. Mostly her songs are about adultery, but also about sleep and fairies and Peter Pan Syndrome. She is a hub of gauzy snark; a damaged Disney princess with a foul mouth. She is the millennium's worst case of arrested development. She has lots of feelings. She herself has been called "angry tinkerbell" (as if tinkerbell wasn't already angry--she's extra-angry tinkerbell), her voice has been described as angelic and princess-like, and her songwriting has been compared to a kick in the balls.

Born Samantha Margulies, this child-woman changed her surname to Echo when she realized that most people (surprisingly) can't pronounce "Margulies" and that its only anagrams are "Manslaughter" and "Satanism" (not that there's anything wrong with Satanism, if that's your religion). Her song “The Slut of Denmark” received the November 2014 Akademia Music Award in the Folk-Cabaret category. She has been featured in the Bitter End NYC's Singer-Songwriter Showcase, as well as in New York Magazine, the Epoch Times, CBS2 News, Suzanne Stout’s first annual Buskers’ Carnival at the Players’ Club, The Atlantic (as part of the series "Rhythm in Motion"), and the Award-Winning Book The Noise Beneath the Apple, by Heather Jacks, who calls her “a Salvador Dali of sound, challenging and disrupting perspective.”
