With his laid-back vocal delivery and acoustic songwriting, Amos Lee draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz, and ’70s folk artists like James Taylor.
His album, Last Days at the Lodge, cracked the Top 40 upon its release in 2008 and became Lee’s highest-charting album to date. His audience grew accordingly, prompting Lee to ask some of his most famous fans — including Willie Nelson, Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, Calexico, and Lucinda Williams — to appear on his next record. The result, Mission Bell, was recorded in 2010 with Calexico’s Joey Burns producing, and released early the following year.
In 2012, Lee delivered the EP As the Crow Flies, featuring previously unreleased songs recorded during the Mission Bell sessions. A year later, Lee returned with Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, which was recorded in Nashville and included appearances from vocalists Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin. The concert album Live at Red Rocks appeared in 2015 and showcased Lee performing with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at the famed outdoor amphitheater in his first headline performance.
