Amos Lee: the singer who blows away Adele
Amos Lee has been called ‘a magnificent singer’ by Adele and his new album Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song also reflects his growing maturity as a songwriter.
Amos Lee has a voice that is something special. Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams and Paul Simon are fans and Adele, who picked him out to be her support act in 2011, says: “Amos is a magnificent singer, incredible. I first saw him at the Jazz Café in 2006 and have adored him since. His voice blows me away.”
The Philadelphia-born musician has more than his voice going for him and his new album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, is his most accomplished yet. It is the follow-up to Mission Bell, which debuted at No1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2011.
