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. Lee, a 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, Amos Lee 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. Amos Lee eventually landed some high-profile gigs as an opening act, including an extended tour with pianist/vocalist Norah Jones, whose bassist, Lee Alexander, agreed to produce Lee’s first album.
Amos Lee is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
