“Amidon’s fragility comes across as sincere without being overwrought” – The London Guardian , Four Star Review

Like Sufjan Stevens or Andrew Bird, Amidon, who’s married to Beth Orton, decorates his folk tunes with complex orchestral arrangements and a conversational vocal style.
On his new album Bright Sunny South, Vermont-born and raised, London-based Sam Amidon delves further in compelling expressions that draw jazz and folk influences together to an entirely unique place. Of 2010’s critically acclaimed I See the Sign, Pitchfork said, “[Amidon’s] interpretations are so singular that it stops mattering how (or if) they existed before.” In addition to his four solo albums, Amidon has collaborated with musical polymath Nico Muhly, toured as part of Thomas Bartlett’s group Doveman, collaborated with Beth Orton and Bill Frisell.
