Here are some of the artists we are helping "Look for America"
A full integrated conventional and digital media promotion service for the independently minded musician.
LA based act, Houston Texas native, 27 year-old Sam Morrow comes out the chute in determined and, exciting fashion as he lays down one gritty track after another. Powered on by a set of players who are really into his music Morrow revisits country music of the 1970s; Outlaw country that is. Feisty as hints of Waylon Jennings (and one or two other heavyweights of the time) sneak through every now and again. Such the freedom expressed by Morrow’s lyrics, and when given a snappy rhythm and stirring electric guitar primed production he cooks up a potent brew.
The term a breath of fresh air came to mind the first time I gave Concrete And Mud a spin, the album like his previous albums Ephemeral and There Is No Map was produced by Eric Corne. He has fellow fledgling recording act Jamie Wyatt join him on the pedal steel (Jay Dee Maness) and slick, country lead (chicken picked) lead guitar fuelled “Skinny Elvis”. While he utilises some ever so sweet fiddle and dobro as he speaks of hearing them call his name on stout and study ballad “Mississippi River” (as he takes the good with the bad in a land of contradiction).
His performance on “Quick Fix” alone is enough to bend the ear of the listener, and at the same time give heart to seasoned music afficianados to believe there is hope for the future of this music, and in the likes of another well fashioned, and this time quicker (give it a little edge and it is typical Waylon and co of the 1970s as they blasted through honky tonks, travelled the road, and life in general with their foot set firmly against the metal) “Good Ole Days” as he stirs up a rukus.
Morrow isn’t afraid of laying open his heart as he slows the tempo, and gives time for reflection on smouldering ballad “Weight Of A Stone”; while and with a sound those in the British Isles have heard via Ags Connolly “Coming Home” prises open the heart of one and all. Top class! Another worthy of a mention is restless ballad, “Cigarettes” as he speaks having another monkey on his back as he struggles to gain control of his life. A familiar story, and through his honest deliver the song sticks.
