The video for &ldquo;Flower,&rdquo; which was directed by //kneeon, is now live on <strong><a href="http://www.facebook.com/amoslee" target="_blank">Lee&rsquo;s Facebook page</a></strong> and his <strong><a href="http://www.vevo.com/artist/amos-lee" target="_blank">VEVO page</a></strong>.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> With <em>Mission Bell</em>&rsquo;s remarkable set of guests&mdash;including Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Sam Beam (Iron &amp; Wine), James Gadson, Priscilla Ahn, and Pieta Brown&mdash;and the musical backing of Calexico&mdash;the album marks the arrival of Amos Lee as a mature artist who continues to explore his musical and thematic interests. &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Since the release of <em>Amos Lee</em> in 2005, the Philadelphia-born-and&ndash;based former schoolteacher has been one of his generation&rsquo;s most celebrated songwriters. After being named one of <em>Rolling Stone</em>&rsquo;s &ldquo;Top 10 Artists to Watch,&rdquo; Lee quickly went on to tour with such giants as Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, Paul Simon, and Elvis Costello. His next two albums&mdash;<em>Supply and Demand</em> (2006) and <em>Last Days at the Lodge</em> (2008)&mdash;continued to extend his audience and his reputation, and his songs appeared in numerous films and television shows. <em>Mission Bell</em> is a dramatic leap forward for Amos Lee&rsquo;s music, but it also feels like the first step in a new creative journey.<br /> <br /> <strong><a target="_blank" href="http://www.amoslee.com/">www.amoslee.com</a></strong>
