Mountains of Sorrow Rivers of Song[CD]
~ Amos Lee
For his fifth album, Amos Lee took a different path for the recording, working in a new city with a new producer. Recording with Amos' road tested touring band, the album was the first project to be recorded in a brand-new studio, built in a converted church in Nashville by producer JAY JOYCE (Emmylou Harris, Little Big Town, Eric Church). The follow-up to 2011's chart-topping MISSION BELL brings the artist into new sonic territory, while retaining the trenchant impact of the scenes, characters, and stories in his writing. Joyce introduced a broader palette to Amos' work, creating a richness and a variety that's never distracting or self-conscious. Being in Nashville also allowed several remarkable guests to come by the sessions including Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin lend heavenly vocals. Amos last album was a surprise entry at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and in an amazingly consistent career he's now sold a million albums over his first four albums. With each album, Amos has deepened his connection to the Nashville community earning fans and performing with an a to Z of the country world, from Lady Antebellum from Zac Brown. Making the album with a proven country hit maker and doing a much-buzzed about showcase in Nashville in June has furthered that cause. Major daytime and late-night TV looks, NPR looks, AAA domination, a series of high-profile synch placements and an amazing sold out tour this fall and early next year will insure that there are drivers for this album well into 2014.
