Music Monday: I Need Love

Sam Phillips is an interesting artist. While an indie-underground sensation, she's never really hit "the big time." But she's been around for ages....

Sam started out as a Christian singer, but found herself limited by this genre...and unable to express her artistry the way she truly wanted to. So she--gasp--broke into the secular market. It's here she found mild success on radio and in film soundtracks (and even a little bit of acting, for which she received a backlash from the Christian community).

This video is for the single "I Need Love," which can be found on Phillips's Grammy-nominated "Martinis & Bikinis."

Here's a fun little fact: Sam Phillips is married to music producer T-Bone Burnett, who's been the mastermind behind albums for Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, and k.d. lang, as well as scored the music for the film "O Brother Where Art Thou?"
