Editors’ Notes

On his fifth album, troubadour Amos Lee offers an individualistic take on Americana that shifts seamlessly between the introspective and the explosive. The dizzying swirl of the psychedelic roots-rocker "Stranger" and the imposing, bluesy stomp of the apocalyptic "High Water" rub shoulders with easy-rolling, reflective ballads like "Johnson Blvd." and "Chill in the Air." Somehow it all coheres with a deceptive effortlessness. When the slinky, '70s-informed soul-funk of "The Man Who Wants You" ups the groove quotient, the deal is sealed with a sizzle.

Customer Reviews

Oh yeah.

It is Amos Lee. If that voice didn't make you fall in love with his music, I'm pretty sure his melodies will. *Sigh

Maybe It Will Grow On Me

I've listened to Amos for years and while I know an artist has to evolve, this album seems to steer a good ways from the bluesy sound that he's known for.


Wow. Really disappointed. Only a couple decent songs on this Album. I've been a huge fan from the very beginning. I've seem Amos at least 7 or 8 times live and have thought every one of his albums was genus. I thought he could do no wrong. Well he just did. This doesn't even sound like an Amos Lee record. Each album he's done always felt like a natural progression but this sounds like Amos Lee trying to be someone else in a really forced way. The only song that sounds like him is "Chill in The Air". I have ticket to see him at the Beacon Theatre in NYC in November and I'm seriously thinking of putting them up for sale because I'm not interested in listening to a concert of this Album. My only hope is he'll play a lot of his older stuff. Really bummed out about this one.


Born: June 22, 1977 in Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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. The Philadelphia native first became serious about performing while attending the University of South Carolina during the mid-'90s. After graduating with a degree in English, he taught elementary school before deciding to pursue a music career full-time. A period of waiting tables and bartending followed as Lee honed his songwriting skills....
