New album “Angeleno” coming soon
produced by Ry Cooder
Sam Outlaw is a country singer living in Los Angeles.
He has just returned from Nashville where he was a featured artist at the 2014 AmericanaFest in Nashville and has now begun tracking his new full-length album, “Angeleno” produced by roots music legend Ry Cooder. I recall at an interview with Cooder in Nashville in September this year, he had high praise for Outlaw and was excited about working with him.
Some of L.A’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).

Sam was born in South Dakota and ‘Outlaw’ is his mother’s maiden name. He writes original songs that seek to capture the spirit of the traditional country music he learned from his favorite singers: George Jones, Willie Nelson, Gene Watson, Don Williams, Keith Whitley and Dwight Yoakam.
While still relatively new to the scene, 2014 has been a pivotal year for Outlaw.
CMT premiered his first-ever music video last Christmas:
Word spread about Sam’s 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.
