Nonesuch Records releases Sam Amidon's label debut 'Bright Sunny South'. Produced by Amidon with his childhood friend and long-time collaborator Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman) and legendary English engineer Jerry Boys (Buena Vista Social Club, Vashti Bunyan, R.E.M.) and recorded in London, the record features a band made up of Bartlett and multi-instrumentalists Shahzad Ismaily and Chris Vatalaro. Trumpeter Kenny Wheeler also makes a cameo. Amidon himself not only sings but also plays banjo, fiddle, acoustic guitar, and piano on the album. 'Bright Sunny South' is 'a lonesome record' and a return to the more spare sound of his 2007 self-recorded debut.
