Shine A Light: Amos Lee

With a name like Amos Lee, you might think Amos is an 80 year old blues singer from New Orleans. The richness and texture of his voice would confirm your thoughts. Wrong, wrong and wrong.

Prodded and produced by Norah Jones bassist Lee Alexander, Lee released his first project in 2005. Lee has toured with Dave Matthews, Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard. Drawn to Thelonious Monk as well as John Prine, his diversity is what helps make him a unique voice and artist in today’s world.  No easy feat.

I really like his stuff. If you are drawn to stylists and good songwriting, check Amos Lee. He may be a jewel that is here to stay among a short shelf life of many other passing artists on todays musical landscape.

I’d love to know what you think if you check him out. Happy discovering and listening !
