AM's 'Future Sons & Daughters' is a moody and inspired album that touches on all of the New Orleans-musician's favorite styles from baroque chamber pieces to mid-tempo country rockers. In that sense, such tracks as the atmospheric Phil Spector-ish number "The Other Side," the lead single "Grand Opinion," and the mellow country-rock anthem "Fortunate Family Tree" deliver on AM's knack for quirky '60s pop-inspired songs. Similarly, the duet with Angela Correa, "It's Been so Long," is pleasantly reminiscent of the classic Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra pairings. Fans of introspective, classicist pop with more than a bit of wit and charm should find much to enjoy on 'Future Sons & Daughters'.

AM brings a heady brew of twinkling Anglified folk-rock-pop, twanging Americana, caressing Philly soul and funky R&B whatchacallit – and, best of all, joyously unheard points in-between. With, arguably, some of the best bridges and choruses in the business, drawing from The Beatles and Badfinger or Curtis Mayfield and Jorge Ben.

Tulsa-born, New Orleans-raised, indie artist AM now resides in Los Angeles bringing his heady brew of twinkling Anglified folk-rock-pop, caressing Philly soul and funky R&B whatchacallit – and, best of all, joyously unheard points in-between. AM does all this with an acute, finessing ear for the ancient art of real, true songcraft. Sure, AM's very personal brand of pop is sturdily built, but so are Mack trucks. What we'd like to point your attention to are the brashly bold new shapes he brings to bear on the modern pop song, with, arguably, some of the best bridges and choruses in the bizness. Superbly, subtly drawn arrangements of said material, whether drawing from the Beatles and Badfinger or Curtis Mayfield and Jorge Ben, demonstrate over and again this simple fact of songwriting life: that Imagination and taste is what it's all about . . . and these are, of course, things you couldn't buy with all the gold in the realm. If you watch the tele maybe you've heard AM's tunes on HBO's "Big Love", NBC's "Friday Night Lights", MTV "The Hills", ABC's "Brothers and Sisters" and more.

AM’s songs reveal an artfully considered blending of classic American and English roots and rock influences, from the Beatles and Badfinger to Roy Orbison, James Brown, Alan Toussaint and Elvis Presley, but that’s just the tip of it, and in recent times he’s swayed by the high-flying melodic and harmonic gambits of such Brazilian legends as Jorge Ben. He ultimately, conveys the comforting heart-tug of a simple pop song sung with sincerity, not irony, and he takes you by surprise at the pop form’s infinite capacity for expressive reinvention.
