Amos Lee (born June 22, 1977) is an American blues, soul, jazz and folk singer-songwriter and musician hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.

After graduating from the University of South Carolina and teaching elementary school, Lee became inspired to create music after listening to the John Prine album, “Great Days”. During this time Lee learned to play the guitar and bass and played as a member of the local band Hot Lava Monster. With influences ranging from Donny Hathaway, Joni Mitchell, Bill Withers and Otis Redding, Lee soon became the opening act for artists including Mose Allison and B.B. King.

In 2003 following a successfully circulated demo Lee secured an opened slot on an extended tour for Norah Jones, and whose bassist, Lee Alexander, produced the musician’s debut album. The eponymously-titled debut mixed the genres of jazz, folk and funk and earned the singer praise from fans and critics alike. “Amos Lee” peaked at No. Two on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and resulted in Lee making appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.

Lee’s sophomore album “Supply and Demand” was issued in October 2006 by his longterm label Blue Note Records. Peaking at No. 76 on the U.S Billboard chart, the album was aided by the singles “Sweet Pea” and “Shout Out Loud”. Where “Supply and Demand” showcased Lee’s impressive instrumentation and complex production work, his third full-length “Last Days at the Lodge”, was an album dedicated to the traditions of folk and soul. Released in 2008 “Last Days at the Lodge”, was more focused than its predecessors and reached No. 29 on the Billboard 200.

With the increased exposure Lee had become popular amongst other artists and bands, many of whom he enlisted to contribute to his fourth full-length “Mission Bell”. The album was released in January 2011, topped the U.S. Billboard 200, and featured the talents of Willie Nelson, Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, Calexico, and Lucinda Williams. The EP “As the Crow Flies” arrived a year later featuring songs recorded at the time of “Mission Bell” which didn’t quite make the No. 1 album. After contributing the song “Some Days Are Diamonds” to “The Music is You: A Tribute To John Denver”, Lee released his fifth studio album “Mountains of Sorrow, River of Song” in October 2013.
