Amos Lee, Lake Street Dive

The Philly-born singer-songwriter Amos Lee, a “gentle genius” (Billboard) of R&B and country-inflected folk, hit his stride with last year’s Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, a record that “brims with introspection about life and love.” (Entertainment Weekly) He follows Lake Street Dive, a captivating indie-pop-swing foursome whose knockout lead singer Rachel Price “has the soulful howl of a young Etta James.” (Daily News)
