Tenk Little Feat med noen dråper Lynyrd Skynyrd og legg til litt outlaw-country. Texas twang, southern stomp og old school funky tonk er Sams egen beskrivelse. Som dere skjønner, så har vi en høytidsstund i vente. Sam Morrow kommer med fullt band, det blir en het sommerkveld på Oslos koseligste bar.
NB- konserten starter klokken 19:00, billetter legges ut 5. juni.
"Los Angeles is home to several of today's best emerging country and Americana artists. Count rising artist Sam Morrow among them. Morrow's soulful vocals and seasoned, world-worn perspectives have been turning heads in the L.A. scene and beyond."
Wide Open Country
At 27 years old, Morrow's found his footing as an artist and appears poised to join the ranks of West Coast heavyweights like Sam Outlaw, Jade Jackson, and Morrow's friend and label mate, Jaime Wyatt whose vocals can be heard on three songs here.
Musically, this is Sam Morrow at his electrified, energetic peak. The sad-eyed sounds of Ephemeral and its 2015 follow-up, There Is No Map — both written during the early years of Morrow's sobriety — have been replaced by something more representative of Morrow's live show, in which he fronts a band of plugged-in roots-rockers. Accordingly, Concrete and Mud doubles down on a blend of countrified funk and guitar-fueled southern rock, shot through with train beats, Telecaster twang, bluesy slide guitar, swirling organ, with Morrow's big, booming voice front and center. There's balance, too. For every swaggering country rocker like "Heartbreak Man" or "Good Ole Days," there's a gorgeous, emotional punch to the gut like "San Fernando Sunshine" or "The Weight of A Stone."
"Paid by the Mile" is full of 70s-worthy stomp and Southern swagger. "Quick Fix" is an infectious hook laden stew of syncopated beats with bubbling clavinet, slinky guitars and doubled vocals. Morrow croons one minute and growls the next with a sly nod to his influences while staking out new territory. From Lynyrd Skynyrd-friendly rockers like "Heartbreak Man" to the Little Feat-worthy grooves of "Cigarettes," Concrete and Mud boldly explores a wide range of styles and sounds.
