Hot Video Alert: Amos Lee - Flower
Lee's music is a mix of styles and genres, specifically folk, soul and jazz and his voice suits each of them. Touring with the likes of Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, Merle Haggard, Dave Matthews Band and more, Amos has gathered up quite the little fan following. That fan following helped get his fourth album, Mission Bell to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart back in January when it was released on Blue Note Records. The album also peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart. Very impressive! Lee's previous album, Last Days at the Lodge, peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200, making Mission Bell his highest charting album to date.
Featuring collaborations with Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Priscila Ahn, Pieta Brown, James Gadson, Sam Beam (from Iron & Wine) and members of the band Calexico - it's no wonder Mission Bell was such a hot ticket! His music is also very soundtrack suitable, appearing in episodes of House, Parenthood, Army Wives, ER, Brothers & Sisters, Grey's Anatomy as well as in a couple of films.
