Amos Lee - Amos LeeIt was only a matter of time before the male equivalent of Norah Jones appeared. Lee, who cites both Stevie Wonder and John Prine as influences, has already opened for Jones. Now signed to Jones’ Blue Note label, and with his debut album produced by her bassist-boyfriend, Lee Alexander, the Philadelphia native seems well groomed for success. While songs like “Dreamin’” and “Bottom of the Barrel” have a refreshing, folk-blues vitality, the best is “Soul Suckers,” which pairs Lee’s soulful voice with chilling cellos.
