New country singer Sam Outlaw will make his SPACE debut in The Studios on March 11. Outlaw (which is his mother’s real maiden name!) was born in South Dakota and now lives in Los Angeles. His forthcoming album Angeleno was produced by one of our favorite musicians, Ry Cooder. You’ll have to wait to hear the album, but if you want an early taste, check out Sam’s self-titled EP available on Bandcamp (below). We think you’ll be hearing a lot more from this young artist. He writes original songs that seek to capture the spirit of the traditional country music he learned from his favorite singers: George Jones, Merle Haggard, Don Williams, Gene Watson, Keith Whitley. But, Sam is clearly carving his own path as an artist. Don’t miss this chance to see a powerful emerging voice on the Americana scene. Get tickets here!
Pokey LaFarge performs his new song “Far Away” and talks about his connections to Chicago music past and present, as well as his new album, produced by Jimmy Sutton at Hi-Style Studios in Chicago, which will be out spring 2015 via Rounder Records.
