A lot of my favorite artists are under the radar, so I've decided to start a "Listen Proud" section of my blog to help share them with the world. First up is Amos Lee, a chill dude who makes my soul smile. His songs are in the singer songwriter vein of Ray LaMontagne or David Gray, but with an added splash or two of jazz.
I was lucky enough to see Amos live at The Ark in Ann Arbor earlier this year. The show sold out immediately because he's far too famous to play at the 500 or so seater venue. I love that he does though (and he does pretty often), because the intimacy of the place makes for a really memorable show.
Listen Proud to all his tracks, but definitely check out the following:
Arms of a Woman
Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight
Shout Out Loud
