About Amos Lee:
Amos Lee’s most recent album Mission Bell, which was produced by Joey Burns of the acclaimed band Calexico, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart marking the highest chart position and best sales week of his career.
Lee will follow up his No. 1 AAA radio single, “Windows Are Rolled Down” with a new single, “Flower,” another track off Lee’s current album Mission Bell. The video for “Flower,” which was directed by //kneeon, is now live on Lee’s Facebook page and his VEVO page.
With Mission Bell’s remarkable set of guests—including Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine), James Gadson, Priscilla Ahn, and Pieta Brown—and the musical backing of Calexico—the album marks the arrival of Amos Lee as a mature artist who continues to explore his musical and thematic interests.
Since the release of Amos Lee in 2005, the Philadelphia-born-and–based former schoolteacher has been one of his generation’s most celebrated songwriters. After being named one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Artists to Watch,” Lee quickly went on to tour with such giants as Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, Paul Simon, and Elvis Costello. His next two albums—Supply and Demand (2006) and Last Days at the Lodge (2008)—continued to extend his audience and his reputation, and his songs appeared in numerous films and television shows. Mission Bell is a dramatic leap forward for Amos Lee’s music, but it also feels like the first step in a new creative journey.
