I was put onto this singer/songwriter, Amos Lee, by good friend Michael Ackerman, along with amazing bands like Death Cab For Cutie and City And Color.
He’s a mix of acoustic music with a touch of R & B. While I initially thought he wasn’t alternative enough for me, I’m really enjoying his lyrical sensibility and artful songwriting. I’m getting inspired to do some songcrafting this summer, in the non-corporate genre, and some of these guys and their music are giving me nudges toward internally familiar territories.
Enjoy. This song is called Seen It All Before.
