SPIRIT – Lee’s sixth full-length album and first for John Varvatos/Republic Records – has drawn critical acclaim from various tastemakers. Billboard wrote, “Amos Lee is ready to take his fans on a journey down to Memphis for a little bit of old school soul.” Huffington Post initially premiered “Vaporize,” while American Songwriter debuted the title track and claimed, “The soulful piano ballad adopts the perspective of the anonymous street singer, who, as Lee imagines him, plays music to ‘feel the spirit’.” “Till You Come Back Through” debuted on Relix who wrote, “It draws on a range of sounds that have influenced him.” Lee also performed a stunning three-song set on CBS Saturday last weekend.
