Sam Outlaw will bring "Terra Cotta" to NL next week


Americana Award winner Sam Outlaw returns on European soil with Terra Cotta, a new album of ten original songs out last March. 

Terra Cotta's sound is indicative of Sam’s evolving "New Wave Western" and "So Cal Country" styles and longtime fans will make immediate connections to Sam's previous albums, Angeleno, Tenderheart, and Popular Mechanics.

The lead track, Pretty Good Singer, recalls Sam’s origins as a Classic Country apologist and pairs him with one of Americana's most impressive female vocalists: Nashville singer-songwriter Lauren Morrow. Other country-leaning songs like Ways To Go and Heart and Soul feature Smith Curry on dobro and pedal steel (Randy Travis) and mandolin from producer and co-writer Cheyenne Medders (Secret Sisters). The live acoustic production of these songs will remind listeners why an alert critic deemed Sam Outlaw's debut album "a polished and cosmopolitan West Coast take on traditional country music". 

Elsewhere on the LP are upbeat genre-benders like the homesick title track Terra Cotta (co-written with Steven Fiore from Young Mister) and the Petty-esque-anxiety-attack-in-a-song Figure It Out, co-written with Americana super-talent Aaron Lee Tasjan

The Grand Ole Opry performer will play a handful of shows in the Netherlands starting on April 3oth:

30/04: Amen, NL - Cafe de Amer
01/05: Utrecht, NL - TivoliVredenburg
02/05: Eindhoven, NL - Muziekgebouw Eindhoven
