Sam Amidon – Saro

We were full of praise for Sam Amidon (calling him Samuel Tear at the time, not sure where that came from) when he appeared on this blog 4 years ago. His profile has risen quite a bit since but then it is difficult to keep genuine talent down especially when there are thousands of ears cocked round the clock for the next big thing. Whether Amidon gets to where he deserves to be remains to be seen but if he continues to knock out quiet classics like ‘Saro’ then the Gods will surely smile on him. This is quite reminiscent of Nick Drake, vocally there are definite similarities but it’s the instrumentation that truly recalls the English bard. Amidon plays SXSW over the next few days. KD
