Friendly Folk Records anticipated release of “Sahm Covers Sahm” a tribute album by Shandon Sahm has received a warm welcome from Sahm fans worldwide. With a retro vibe, the album pays homage to the artist’s infamous father, Doug Sahm. The album features a selection of Doug’s greatest hits from the 60’s – 90’s delivered with a modern day twist by his son, Shandon, who is accompanied by stellar line-up of musicians. Shandon Sahm embarked on his new solo career of singer-songwriter with his own style of contemporary alt-country and glam folk rock, and in 2018, Shandon packed up his guitar, cat, and belongings and left his home in Austin, Texas (USA) and moved to Amsterdam (Netherlands). After a successful run as drummer for the American rock band, Meat Puppets, Shandon felt it was time to return to his alternative country roots and release a tribute album to his late father, Doug Sahm. During an interview Shandon once said, “I want to turn people on to Dad’s music, but I don’t feel I’m in his shadow.” This sentiment reflects the spirit behind ‘Sahm Covers Sahm’ which features Doug Sahm hits: ‘Groover’s Paradise’, ‘Goodbye San Francisco-Hello Amsterdam’, ‘Monterey Sun’, ‘Meet Me In Stockholm’ and ‘Give Back The Key To My Heart’.
