Exciting News: Sami Lin is now on Pandora Internet Radio! 

The recent release "Hurricanes" is now on Pandora Internet Radio! If you set up a Sami Lin station you'll find her partnered up with old school artists from the country, folk and Americana genres such as Lyle Lovett, Allison Krauss, Emmy Lou Harris and Neil Young in addition to fresh new artists. Hurricanes has an indie folk vibe that blends a string session of cello, violin, and acoustic guitar, a tribal beat and soulful vocals. The album artwork was shot on the Chicago lakefront on an extraordinarily windy day connecting the listener to this "Hurricane" headed straight for the Windy City.To show appreciation you can download "Hurricanes" from my website for FREE for a limited time.
