Sam Outlaw is a young country singer living in Los Angeles. His new LP 'Angeleno' is a collection of pedal steel-drenched instant country classics, rooted in West Coast cool and Southern California country rock. Outlaw (his mother's maiden name) is leading the charge in SoCal's revived country scene, and in fact enlisted LA roots royalty Ry Cooder and his son Joachim Cooder to produce and play on the album.
'A Hollywood honky-tonker, Sam Outlaw filters the twang of his country influences through the Mexican-American culture of his Los Angeles home. The result? Angeleno, a debut album that mixes acoustic guitars, mariachi horns, James Taylor-worthy melodies and two-step tempos into the best culture clash this side of Linda Rondstadt's Canciones de mi Padre.' - Rolling Stone Country
'A smart songwriter with an affinity for the feel of 1990s country, this Outlaw makes music that's a lot more inviting than his name suggests.' - CMT EDGE
'The surprise of the night for me though came from Los Angeles based country singer Sam Outlaw. This guy came out on stage and immediately had the audience in the palm of his hand. He delivered one liners about playing country music in LA, which is challenging to say the least, while dipping in and out of some seriously great songs. And this is coming from a non-country fan.' - LIVE review from The Vinyl District
