Samantha Farrell

Often, the first thing people say they notice about Samantha Farrell is a yellow shock of extremely curly hair. The second thing that people notice, and the thing they never forget, is her voice. Her tone is totally unique and yet familiar all at once; at times playfully lilting and undulating, other times a sexy murmur, and a raspy declaration.
