Amos Lee - As the Crow Flies

Discovered by Norah Jones, Lee made his mark with a soul-folk sound that drew comparisons to James Taylor and Bill Withers. But the Philadelphia native has found a new muse in Joey Burns, of dreamy indie-rockers Calexico, who produced Lee’s fine Mission Bell album. This six-song CD continues the collaboration, with standout tracks like the country-tinged “May I Remind You” and “The Darkness.” Most inspired is the shuffling, harmony-infused “Say Goodbye,” which may give Lee the hit he deserves.
