Sam Amidon makes his Nonesuch Records debut with Bright Sunny South. Produced by Amidon with longtime childhood friend Thomas Bartlett and legendary engineer Jerry Boys (Buena Vista Social Club, Vashti Bunyan, R.E.M.), the album features a band made up of Bartlett and multi-instrumentalists Shahzad Ismaily, Chris Vatalaro and Kenny Wheeler. Amidon describes the album as “a lonesome record” and a return to the more spare sound of his 2007 self-recorded debut. The talented musician not only sings but also plays banjo, fiddle, acoustic guitar and piano on the album.

...what distinguishes Amidon from the pack of folk revivalists currently enamored with pre-rock Americana: He not only has an impressively deep knowledge of traditional song forms, but takes liberties with the country's past in order to document his own personal present. - Pitchfork
