am Outlaw – one of Los Angeles’s only modern country artists – was presented with the International Album of the Year Award for his acclaimed, Ry Cooder produced debut album Angeleno at the UK Americana Awards 2017. Tenderheart,is his much anticipated sophomore LP.
The 13-track collection of originals was recorded in the San Fernando Valley and co-produced by Outlaw alongside Martin Pradler. Outlaw enlisted many of the same musicians that made his first album, harmony singer Molly Jenson, pedal steel pro Jeremy Long and guitarist Danny Garcia, along with Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket).
In addition, Tenderheart features local mariachi group Erwin Vasquez and Mariachi Teocuitatlan. Outlaw offers an extraordinary refinement of the artistic identity laid out on Angeleno. Sonically, the album elaborates on his “SoCal Country” sound: a sun-bleached, Baja-influenced twang that deftly points to country’s neo-traditionalists and LA’s legendary singer-songwriters. Thematically, ‘Tenderheart’ is a thesis on self-discovery and the power of love –- Outlaw meditates on his own conflicted quest for peace amidst the chaos of his chosen path.

Angaleena Presley will follow her acclaimed 2014 American Middle Class withWrangled, her second full-length solo album, on April 21 via Mining Light Music/Thirty Tigers. The album is co-produced by Angaleena and Oran Thornton and features 12 tracks, all of which were co-written by Presley. One of the album’s many highlights is “Cheer Up Little Darling” written by Angaleena and her dear friend,Guy Clark. The song — the last song completed by Guy before his death — features Shawn Camp playing Guy’s No. 10 guitar, which was used to write the song with Guy, and Guy’s mandola, which Guy had been learning to play during the last year of his life. With Wrangled, the ebony haired songwriter from Beauty, Kentucky ups the bar, widening her range and finding metaphors and doppelgangers for feminism, the music business and the unseen underclass who’s just trying to get by. But as thrilling as that is, Wrangled also opens a portal into a new kind of country: textural, trippy, frozen in time, urgent, tranquil, but then raw punk and rural.
Angaleena Presley has been touring regularly over in the UK since 2014 and most recently toured with Brandi Carlile in November 2016 and February 2017 to participate in the UK Americana Awards.
