Cosmic American welcome Sam Outlaw band to the H&H on Wednesday 30th August.
Since the release of his 2015 debut Angeleno, Outlaw remains one of LA’s only modern country singers to earn international acclaim. And with his follow-up Tenderheart he shows an impressive refinement of his artistic identity. Sonically, the album further elaborates Outlaw’s ‘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. Alt-country pioneer Ryan Adams just recently praised Outlaw, calling his work ‘beyond great songwriting’
Angeleno’s critical acclaim also led to 18 months of international touring. He entertained thousands of festival-goers with a prime slot at Stagecoach, made four trips to Europe, toured Australia twice and played several hundred gigs in the USA. After all those miles it’s fitting that Tenderheart bottles the energy of the songs that have become mainstays of his live show. Fan-favorites like ‘Diamond Ring’ and honky-tonk sing-along ‘All My Life’ finally get proper studio treatment, along with ‘Look At You Now,’ a regular highlight of his acoustic tours overseas – where Outlaw is nominated for AmericanaUK’s International Album of the Year alongside Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price. Check out the video for his latest single ‘Trouble’ below;
