Los Angeles’s Americana band, The Satin Cowboy & The Seven Deadly Sins, has released their first cover song, Randy Newman’s “Blue Shadows on the Trail” off their third full-length album, Amigos; set to release this summer. Premiering on Americana Highways, the single “Blue Shadows on the Trail” is a tribute to the Randy Newman’s classic cowboy song that originally appeared in the 1986 hit film, The Three Amigos.
“Blue Shadows on the Trail” is the second of two songs released off their newest album, Amigos. “Song for Tom Petty” premiered through American Songwriter on May 12th.
The Satin Cowboy is Emmy-winning film and television composer Silas Hite. The Seven Deadly Sins are his ever changing but always talented guest musicians, comprised of friends and family. On Amigos, his featured guests include Sam Nelson (Ricky Nelson's son) and celebrated indie rocker Bhi Bhiman. Having made a career out of selling catchy melodies to the likes of Apple, Disney, and PIXAR, Silas fills his latest album with melodies that seem both fresh and yet oddly personal and familiar.
This rootsy-rock band formed from the desolate deserts of Arizona to the southern coast of California, spanning more than 10 years in the making. The music is a unique blend of Southwest Americana. The new album, Amigos, from The Satin Cowboy is the band’s third full-length release. Amigos explores friendship, loneliness, and love in a blend of bluegrass, old-school country, and folk. Influences like John Prine and The Travelling Wilburys can be heard merging with modern, confessional troubadours like Jason Isbell and Conor Oberst.
