Sam Burton :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Sam Burton isn't trying to "reinvent the wheel" with his sophomore album, Dear Departed. Crafted in collaboration with Jonathan Wilson (Margo Price, Angel Olsen, Father John Misty) in Laurel Canyon, the album incorporates familiar and trusted elements—think Nick Drake at his most windswept, Leonard Cohen in a slightly sweeter mood, or a less rhinestoned Glen Campbell—but Burton presents his own vision. He joined us to discuss teaming up with Wilson, his roots in rural Utah, and finding a newfound appreciation for the '90s pop country he grew up hearing . . .
