Partisan Records has announced the signing of Los Angeles-based artist, Sam Burton.
To coincide with the news, Burton has shared gorgeous new song "Maria," the first taste of his upcoming full-length album due out later this year. "Maria" was produced by Jonathan Wilson (Angel Olsen, Father John Misty, Margo Price) at his Topanga Canyon studio with some of the best studio players in LA, and perfectly showcases Burton’s knack for mining pure Laurel Canyon AM gold. Pastoral string arrangements bloom in the background of Sam’s striking honeyed vocals - like a modern-day Campbell, Orbison, or Nilsson. Listen/watch below:
In Sam’s own words: "'Maria' is a song of brief redemption. It’s seeing a shape in the soft light and trusting it’s there even though it’s not defined."
