Singer-songwriter, Amos Lee, will make his F.M. Kirby Center debut on Sunday, July 30 at 8:00 p.m.
Amos Lee, born in Philadelphia as Ryan Anthony Massaro, worked as a teacher and bartender while pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter, and eventually scored a record deal from Blue Note Records after his manager submitted his demo.
He toured with label-mate Norah Jones and Bob Dylan, and then on his own before recording his self-titled debut album in 2005, showcasing his unique fusion of folk, jazz, and rock, anchored by his sophisticated songwriting and soulful voice.
The following year, Lee released his sophomore effort Supply and Demand featuring the single "Shout Out Loud", and put out his third album Last Days at the Lodge in 2008, diversifying his instrumentation and enhancing his neo soul sound.
In 2011, his fourth studio album Mission Bell debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, with appearances by Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson, and featured his hit single "Windows are Rolled Down".
Lee released his folky, country-tinged fifth album Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, recorded in Nashville in 2013, which featured vocal support from the likes of Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin.
In recent years, Lee has captivated tickets owners in concert with Elvis Costello, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, and Adele. With his most recent album, SPIRIT, he makes his biggest creative leap yet, acting as his own producer.
