Sampson's debut album, Dark Sky Nights, is an intimate look at the depths of the human heart. Universal themes of loss, heartbreak, and despair are wrapped in lush soundscapes, with Sampson's haunting vocals at the core. Sampson wrote the album literally alone in the dark, an atmosphere that allowed her to channel emotional darkness from an even more vulnerable, honest place. The resulting album is raw, dynamic, and affecting.
