Van Duzer Theatre
With his laid-back vocal delivery and lyrical acoustic songwriting, Amos Lee draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz and ’70s folk artists. For his fifth album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, Lee took a different path for the recording; he worked in a new city with a new producer, while, for the first time, he brought his touring band into the studio with him. The twelve songs that resulted—the follow-up to 2011's chart-topping Mission Bell—bring Amos into new sonic territory, while retaining the trenchant impact of the scenes, characters, and stories in his writing. The Philadelphia-born former schoolteacher has earned the attention of not only the press and discerning music fans, but also his fellow artists — He has toured with legendary artists like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, collaborated with Norah Jones and Lucinda Williams, and been regularly touted as a favorite songwriter and performer by the likes of The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum.
