More about singer-songwriter Amos Lee ~
“Taking inspiration from soul greats Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers and folk legends John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Amos Lee directs his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music that aims to unite, uplift, and inspire. The “folk” side is reflected in his nimble acoustic guitar playing and the intimacy of his live performances. The “soul” strain comes through in the engaging song-poetry of his lyrics and in what the Philadelphia Inquirer described as his “easygoing voice” and “raw, unedited emotion.”
Since his debut in 2004, he has released five albums generating a series of hits: “Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight,” “I’ve Seen It All Before,” “Arms of a Woman,” “Won’t Let Me Go,” “Shout Out Loud,” and more recently “Windows Are Rolled Down,” “Flower” and “The Man Who Wants You.”
