Sam Amidon - Lily-O

Sam Amidon has carved out an impressive discography reinterpreting everything from public domain folk tunes to R. Kelly hits in his uniquely hypnotic style. He’ll add to that discography this fall with Lily-O. “Walkin’ Boss” is unmistakably Amidon, setting a droning warble against folksy banjo that somehow seems futuristic in context. Listen below.

Lily-O is out 9/30 on Nonesuch. Pre-order it here.

  1. Great track. I See the Sign is my fav album by him. Can’t wait for more.

  2. That’s some quality Amidon.

  3. Living in OR really burnt me out on the whole banjo-folky sound but Sam Amidon always sounds great to me. His interpretations always rise above the rest.
