Soulful singer-songwriter Amos Lee will perform at Pensacola’s Saenger Theatre in March, theatre officials announced this week.
Lee, whose musical style encompasses folk, rock, and soul, is touring in support of his new album, SPIRIT. The album, released in August, has drawn critical acclaim. 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 wrote, “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, which wrote, “It draws on a range of sounds that have influenced him.”
His previous effort, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, earned acclaim from The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Paste, and others, while his fourth album, Mission Bell, took #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Along the way, Lee has performed on late night television shows such as Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and The Late Show with David Letterman, in addition to being a musical guest for The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Tavis Smiley on PBS.
Lee is scheduled to perform on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the reserved seating show are $49.50, $39.50 and $29.50 (plus applicable service charge) and will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 18 at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, charge by phone by calling 800-745-3000, or online at ticketmaster.com.
