RIYL: Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Ryan Bingham
Label: President Gator Records
It only took 22 releases, but Arizona’s own President Gator Records finally has a country release and it has a SoCal twist!
It’s first time on wax, Sam Outlaw’s eponymous debut EP will be hitting shelves this April, but you can preorder now.
โThe music I play, I call ‘SoCal country,’โ says Outlaw. โIt’s country music but with a Southern California spirit to it. What is it about Southern California that gives it that spirit, I don’t exactly know. But there’s an idea that I like that says – every song, even happy songs, are written from a place of sadness. If there’s a special sadness to Southern California it’s that there’s an abiding shadow of loss of what used to be. But then, like with any place, you have a resilient optimism as well.โ
