Amos Lee On World Cafe | January 28, 2011 |

Click to enlarge

An elementary school teacher turned musician, Philadelphia's Amos Lee takes his inspiration from the soul and folk artists of the '70s, including John Prine, Neil Young, James Taylor and Bill Withers.

Last Days at the Lodge came out in 2008, and reception for its alt-folk sound was enthusiastic. Lee took the feedback and brought together a standout list of people and music for his newest album, Mission Bell, released this week. The album features Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Priscilla Ahn, Pieta Brown and Calexico as guests.

Here, Lee performs live in the WXPN studios and chats with World Cafe host David Dye.
