New Artist of the Week

Amos Lee – Amos Lee
2005
EMI

Amos Lee is proof positive that it is worth while to channel surf obsessively.

I stumbled upon Lee closing a rerun episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien. I listened to the album online and felt a brisk breeze of musical refreshment.

In a time when record companies jam more and more tracks to a recording, Lee’s simple approach is a breath of fresh air. The album magnifies his rich voice, great lyrics and a small ensemble of instruments. The last time I heard something this “fresh” was when I listened to Norah Jones’ first album.

Mmmmmm, that’s what I’m talk’n bout…
