..An old soul, younger than he needs to be, maybe. A young, emerging artist paying tribute to lessons learned from the greats who walked before him, maybe. We'll see.
His new album "Concrete and Mud" has been receiving a lot of favorable reviews and mentions like Rolling Stone who references Morrow as being "one of 10 New Country Artist's you need to know" in their January edition.
American Songwriter (January 2018) states Morrow has been on the radars of fans of left-of-center country since he released his debut album Ephemeral in 2014, while Wide Open Country states "Los Angeles is home to several of today’s best emerging country and Americana artists. Count rising artist Sam Morrow among them" counting him as one of "9 New Country Artist's to Watch in 2018" in their new edition.
Another reviewer at Wide Open Country places his new album in the "Top 9 Country and Americana Albums to Look Forward to in 2018" alongside Kacey Musgraves, Wade Bowen, Montgomery Gentry and others.
"Los Angeles-based artist Sam Morrow has been one of the West Coast’s best kept country secrets for a few years now. But that’s all about to change with the release of his upcoming album Concrete and Mud, which is expected to put him in the national spotlight. Morrow channels the gritty soul of southern rock with a Cali-swagger that’s all his own" - Bobbie Jean Sawyer (Wide Open Country)
Himself on his new album Concrete and Mud: "It's about the fabric of America, and how the Mississippi is a metaphor for what binds very different people together," says Morrow, whose album builds a similar bridge between opposing camps: country and rock & roll; the West Coast and the American South, concrete and mud. "The sentiment is," he adds, "the things that unite us are stronger than the forces that divide us."
Forty Below Records is set to drop 'Concrete and Mud' March 30, 2018. Pre-order the album through Apple Music and receive the single "Quick Fix" instantly https://apple.co/2rhTZWI
