Amos Lee's 2011 LP, Mission Bell, signaled the maturation of an artist who'd for some reason or another been relegated to the easy-listening set. While maintaining roots planted in a tradition of honest blues and folk, Lee's tendency to eschew much experimentation was given a sound makeover with Mission Bell, thanks in no small part to producer Joey Burns of Calexico. Since then, Lee's output has continued to expand, splicing his heartfelt acoustic ballads with denser arrangements and more dramatic movements. His most recent album, Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, is a return of sorts to his neo-soul background, his voice given rise to shine with collaborations from Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin, among others.
