Amos Lee Shares the Surprising Musical Artist Who Inspired His New Album

Musician Amos Lee shares the artist who played a tremendous role in inspiring his latest album, "My Ideal"—and how the pandemic led him to this iconic artist.   

"March 2020 things got pretty rough for everybody, and my two favorite musicians of all time John Prine and Bill Withers... both passed away within three weeks of each other," Amos explains. "I was listening to a lot of their music early on in the pandemic time, [but] when they passed, I couldn't listen to it anymore, it was too heartbreaking." 

Instead, he says, "I gravitated to Chet Baker, because first of all, there's an immense amount of sorrow in his singing. The songs are so beautiful, but in some way, for me, there was also something that was lifting me up." 

Amos' newest album, "My Ideal," is out now.  

Wait, There's More ...
