Carter Sampson is an Okie born, Oklahoma City based singer-songwriter. Blessed by a musical legacy from a family that includes such talents as Roy Orbison, Carter’s journey as a musician seems to have been predestined. A naturally independent free spirit, what started as a pass-time at age 15 had matured into a dedicated passion of creation and performance. Her empowering, relatable and appealing music has garnered her an incredibly diverse and loyal fan base. Audiences and sound engineers alike find that appearances can be deceiving as this diminutive figure delivers a powerful and compelling performance. Carter has made several appearances at the songwriter’s Mecca, The Blue Door, both opening for artists such as Patrice Pike, Christine Kane and Susan Gibson and headlining her own shows. She has also played The Blue Door's Annual Tribute to Woody Guthrie along with Ray Wylie Hubbard and Kevin Welch.  Her radio debut was made on 107.7 FM's “For the Sake of the Song” radio show with “I’ll Be Around”. Since then her music has had radio play across the nation. Carter also plays many outdoor festivals which have included Amnesty International’s “Groovefest”, the Paseo Arts Festival, the Oklahoma City Festival of the Arts, The Illinois River Jam and has performed twice at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, OK. Nationally, Carter has entertained in the subways of Boston creating a following there that quickly led to club dates in Boston and Cambridge including Leslie College. Carter has opened shows for The Elephant Revival, Pat Green and toured Texas and Oklahoma with Bitch and Animal of Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records. She currently tours regularly in OK, KS, NM, AR and CO. Carter was named a "Top 12 Finalist" in the 2012 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and performed at the Lincoln Center in NY, NY. This year she was given an "Honorable Mention" in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest.

 

November 2008 brought the release of her fourth album "Good for the Meantime" recorded with Travis Linville at DirtyBird Studios and mastered by Garrett Hines at Treelady studios. Sampson has had a great response to the tours supporting "Good for the Meantime" and the album has sold many times through itunes and at live shows.

 

In April 2011 Carter launched her newest project "Mockingbird Sing" on www.kickstarter.com. She gave fans and backers 30 days to raise the money to record and release her 3rd studio album. By offering rewards such as exclusive songs, tee shirts, posters and house concerts Carter's fans backed her project 105% by raising over $6,000 with 90 backers. Mockingbird Sing was released 11-11-11!  The new CD has 11 original songs and includes "John Hardy" a traditional tune recorded by artist such as Woody Guthrie and The Carter Family. "Mockingbird Sing" features Carter's band, The County Seat, and was recorded at East Hall Studios in Fayetteville, AR and mastered at Treelady Studios in Turtle Creek, PA.
