Weeknight Concerts and Memorable Moments

About a year and a half ago I stumbled upon a musician that quickly became a favorite. Not many know of him, although songs like Sweet Pea and Skipping Stones are often heard on television and in movies. It only took one listen to the song  Careless, and I was an instant fan. I am not one to care about attending concerts, but I knew that if Mr. Lee ever toured through Atlanta I was going to attend. After receiving a tip from a fellow fan that Mr. Lee was coming to Atlanta, I had secured concert tickets in less than five minutes. It was risky: the concert took place at eight o’clock on a week night, and as much as I hate to admit it, this girl needs her beauty sleep. But I HAD to go, and I am so glad I did.

I am not sure what my favorite performance was. It may have been the impromptu song he sang about things I cannot discuss without blushing, it may have been Shout out Loud, it may have been Southern Girlbut what I know is this: Amos Lee was at least ten times better sounding (and looking)  in person! And according to concert goers of other musicians, this is not the norm. Thank you Amos for a great night; I was wide awake the entire performance. I cannot wait for you to come back and perform again. And if you’ve never heard of Amos Lee before, then I am proud to have introduced him to you.
