“People’s Weekly Pick” – People Magazine
“…an album that broadens the range of a singer who will never be mistaken for anyone else.” – Associated Press
“Spirit, Lee is in his sweet spot” – Associated Press
Amos Lee’s “folksy, bluesy sound” has been compared to that of John Prine and Norah Jones. His music is said to utilize the “supple funk of his vocals and arid strum of his guitar” while recalling “the low-volume, early-’70s acoustic soul of stars like Bill Withers and Minnie Ripperton”. A New York Times music critic described Lee as having a “honeyed singing voice – light amber, mildly sweet, a touch of grain” which he features “squarely, without much fuss or undue strain” in his “1970s folk rock and rustic soul” musical song craft. According to a music writer at ABC News, Lee “has that folksy, bluesy vibe, with a bit of country twang” and a voice that is “ever soulful”. His lyrics are said to convey “the complexities of everyday emotions.”
His newest album, SPIRIT, has drawn critical acclaim from various taste-makers. Billboard wrote, “Amos Lee is ready to take his fans on a journey down to Memphis for a little bit of old school soul.” Huffington Post initially premiered “Vaporize,” while American Songwriter debuted the title track and claimed, “The soulful piano ballad adopts the perspective of the anonymous street singer, who, as Lee imagines him, plays music to ‘feel the spirit.’” “Till You Come Back Through” debuted on Relix who wrote, “It draws on a range of sounds that have influenced him.”
Amos Lee continues to excite fans worldwide. His most recent album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, earned acclaim from The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Paste, and More. Previous offering, Mission Bell, took #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Along the way, he has perform on late night television shows Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the Late Show with David Letterman. In addition to being musical guest for The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Tavis Smiley on PBS.
