Product Notes

Based in Portland, Oregon, Samantha Kushnick is a cellist, singer and songwriter in the folk tradition. She has performed with the Portland Cello Project and Typhoon, Portland's twelve-piece indie rock ensemble, as well as with the Vancouver Symphony in Washington State. In April, she released her debut solo record, One Room House. Sami graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory in 2007 with a degree in cello performance. She was raised in New York in a musical family (her great-uncle, Fred Hellerman, is a founding member of the folk quartet The Weavers). Sami began playing cello at the age of ten and has studied with renowned cellists Matt Haimovitz and Hans Jensen. One Room House was recorded and mixed in Portland by Lee Howard at Mystery Machine Studios (Y La Bamba, Nick Jaina) and mastered by Tom Swift at Swift Kick Productions (Miles Davis, BB King). One Room House is graced with performances by some of Portland's finest musicians. Nick Jaina and Matt Berger (drummer for the Portland Cello Project and Laura Gibson) appear on the record as do Anna Fritz of the Cello Project and Jay Cobb Anderson and Mimi Naja of the string band Fruition. The style of One Room House varies greatly. It ranges from folk-inspired arrangements of voice, pedal steel, fiddle and finger-picked cello to lush orchestral layering of bowed string instruments along with voice, strummed cello, drums, and electric guitar. In addition to her solo career, Sami has collaborated with many acclaimed musicians on stage and in the studio. Among these artists are Mirah, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, Jenny Conlee of the Decemberists, Gregory Alan Isakov, Berlin Philharmonic director Sir Simon Rattle, the Oregon Ballet Theater, and members of the Oregon Symphony. Through her travels with Typhoon, Sami has shared a stage with the likes of Andrew Bird and the Dandy Warhols and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. She has performed classical and contemporary works throughout North America, at venues ranging from Oregon's Britt Festival to Carnegie Hall. Sami teaches private cello and fiddle lessons out of her studio in southeast Portland. She is also a faculty member of the Community Music Center. When Sami isn't teaching or playing music, you can usually find her on her bike, in the woods, in her kitchen, in her garden or with her nose in a book.
