SoCal Country Artist Sam Outlaw Confirms New LP - ‘Tenderheart’ – Out April 14 On Six Shooter Record

SoCal Country Artist Sam Outlaw Confirms New LP - ‘Tenderheart’ – Out April 14 On Six Shooter Records

ROLLING STONE COUNTRY INTERVIEW + ALBUM TRAILER: http://rol.st/2jQZeGF

 

Sam Outlaw - one of Los Angeles’s only modern country artists – has shared details for his anticipated sophomore LP, entitled ‘Tenderheart,’ out April 14th on Six Shooter Records. Outlaw spoke with Rolling Stone Country about the new album and shared an album trailer this morning with a preview of some new music. Read/watch here: http://rol.st/2jQZeGF

 On ‘Tenderheart,’ Outlaw offers an extraordinary refinement of the artistic identity laid out on ‘Angeleno’. Sonically, the album elaborates on his “SoCal Country” sound: a sun-bleached, Baja-influenced twang that deftly points to country’s neo-traditionalists and LA’s legendary singer-songwriters. Thematically, ‘Tenderheart’ is a thesis on self-discovery and the power of love – from the cinematic mariachi-laced climax on opener “Everyone’s Looking For Home,” to the determined swagger on side-A highlight “Trouble,” to torch song showstopper “Diamond Ring” - Outlaw meditates on his own conflicted quest for peace amidst the chaos of his chosen path.

 

The 13-track collection of originals was recorded in the San Fernando Valley and co-produced by Outlaw alongside Martin Pradler. Outlaw enlisted many of the same musicians that made his first album, 2015’s ‘Angeleno,’ an undisputed breakthrough and one of the best-reviewed debuts of that year: harmony singer Molly Jenson, pedal steel pro Jeremy Long and guitarist Danny Garcia, along with Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket). In addition, ‘Tenderheart’ features local mariachi group Erwin Vasquez and Mariachi Teocuitatlan.

 

‘Angeleno’ earned raves NPR Music, Rolling Stone Country, New Yorker, LA Times, Wall Street Journal + many more. LA weekly called him “contender to be the biggest country star L.A. has produced since Dwight Yoakam,” he landed tours with Kacey Musgraves and Yoakam, and made his TV debut on CBS Saturday Morning with a performance and interview with Anthony Mason: http://bit.ly/1UnXDWm
