Samamidon - All is Well

Playing under his smashed-together first and last names, Sam Amidon plays hushed traditional folk and blues songs with a light touch and deep resonance. The songs on his newest offering All Is Well (Bedroom Community) play out like epilogues to tragic Cormac McCarthy novels; never overdone but filled with the melancholy of a story that doesn't really end. Even his "up tempo" songs are anchored by his wistful vocal delivery. Highly recommended.
