Singer-songwriter Amos Lee takes MSU Riley Center stage Tuesday
Singer-songwriter Amos Lee aims for the heart as well as the ears. The intimate setting of the MSU Riley Center, where he will appear in concert on Tuesday [Nov. 14], will provide the perfect showcase for his intensely personal lyrics and honeyed folk-soul singing. The show will start at 7:30 p.m.
Lee, a Pennsylvania native, has built a major following in the Mid-Atlantic states. Touring as an opening act for such stars as Norah Jones, Bob Dylan and Zac Brown Band introduced him to a wider audience.
He has also broadened his music from its original folk-based sound. After recording last year’s “Spirit,” his most recent album, he said, “We came away from these sessions with a hybrid sound I wasn’t able to find in my previous records, but which I’ve always gravitated to as a listener -- real gospel-soul-R&B stuff.”
Always, Lee tries to connect emotionally with his listeners. As he told the crowd at the end of a recent concert, “Hope you’ve been able to feel it more than hear it.”
Tickets are $68 and $62 at the MSU Riley Center Box Office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets can be purchased online at www.msurileycenter.com or by calling the box office at (601) 696-2200.
