Nonesuch Records releases The Following Mountain, the newest solo album by experimental folk artist, singer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Amidon, on May 26, 2017. Created with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Regina Spektor) and Amidon’s frequent collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, the album represents a new approach for Amidon, who shifts here from his previous norm of re-working traditional folk songs and presents nine wholly original compositions, with some lyrics drawing on traditional sources.
