We are big fans of our next recommended artist LA based Sam Outlaw. Since the release of his 2015 debut 'Angeleno', Sam Outlaw remains one of Los Angeles only modern country singers to earn international acclaim. With his follow-up 'Tenderheart' he shows an impressive refinement of his artistic identity. Sonically, the album further elaborates Sam'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 - a course set with the opening chords of "Everyone's Looking For Home." The opening track is a cinematic, mariachi-laced meditation on Outlaw's own conflicted quest for peace amongst the chaos of his chosen path.
