VIBES: Sam Outlaw
Sam Outlaw is a country singer living in Los Angeles.
He was born in South Dakota and ‘Outlaw’ is his mother’s maiden name.
Sam writes original songs that seek to capture the spirit of the classic country music he learned from his favorite singers: George Jones, Willie Nelson, Gene Watson, Don Williams, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, etc.
While still relatively new to the scene, 2014 has been a pivotal year for Outlaw. CMT premiered his first-ever music video last Christmas, after which his second music video became a viral hit, premiered by The Bluegrass Situation and shared by thousands in the Americana community.
Word spread about Sam’s self-released EP and live shows throughout Southern California and this buzz earned him a slot at The Stagecoach Festival in the Coachella Valley in April. He followed up this appearance with his Nashville debut at the world-renowned live music showcase, Music City Roots. He spent the summer writing new songs and returned to Nashville in the Fall as a featured artist at AmericanaFest.
Sam has now begun tracking his new full-length album, "Angeleno" produced by roots music legend Ry Cooder. Some of LA's finest musicians were hand-picked for the "Angeleno" sessions, including Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Gabe Witcher (Punch Brothers), Danny Garcia (Reverend Baron) as well as Jeremy Long (pedal steel), and Joachim Cooder (drums and co-producer).
"Angeleno" will be released in 2015.
