Amos Lee Live in Concert with the Seattle Symphony

Singer-songwriter Amos Lee joins the Seattle Symphony for a one-night-only concert event. Lee will perform songs from his latest studio album, Spirit (released August 2016), an ambitious self-produced album that marries modern rhythms with classic instrumentation and was inspired by his recent collaborations with orchestras and choirs. While his last two albums bore the stamp of strong producers (Joey Burns of Calexico and Jay Joyce of Little Big Town, Eric Church, Cage the Elephant), Lee finally felt ready to take over the helm with this latest record. Over the course of more than a dozen years and six studio albums, Amos Lee has continued to evolve, develop and challenge himself as a musician. With Spirit, he makes his biggest creative leap yet.

Amos Lee

Singer-Songwriter

Over the course of more than a dozen years and six studio albums, Amos Lee has continued to evolve, develop, and challenge himself as a musician. With SPIRIT, he makes his biggest creative leap yet. Most notably, for the first time, Lee acted as his own producer. While his last two albums bore the stamp of strong producers—Joey Burns of Calexico on 2011’s Mission Bell (which debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200, Amazon, iTunes charts, and spun off a hit single with "Windows are Rolled Down") and Jay Joyce (Little Big Town, Eric Church, Cage the Elephant) on 2013’s Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song—Lee finally felt ready to take over the helm. “I’ve been wanting to produce my own record for a long time,” he says, explaining that he met with numerous candidates before concluding that he should make the move.
