For his fifth album, Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song—released in 2013—Amos Lee shook things up by bringing his touring band into the studio with him for the first time. "In the singer-songwriter world, it can be sort of a solitary creative process, so it's good to collaborate with people and bring songs to life together," says the Philadelphia-based former schoolteacher in his online bio. The result is a rock/blues album that's full of ear-delighting surprises, from the ragtime-style piano solo at the end of "The Man Who Wants You" to the dark, weighty beat of "High Water"—no conventional acoustic-guitar strumming here. And Lee expertly melds his relaxed, bluesy voice into each style. Provo's own Desert Noises will open the evening; it'll be a treat to experience their rowdy rock & roll energy filling the enormous amphitheater. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
