I have been a big Amos Lee fan for a long time now. I've seen him in concert multiple times, including the Oregon Zoo and a bunch of different venues in S.F. from college. He does an amazing Michael McDonald impression sometimes, and he just generally has great banter between songs. He just recorded a cover of John Denver's "Some Days Are Diamonds" for the forthcoming "The Music is You: A Tribute to John Denver," out April 2nd.
Other artists contributing to The Music Is You include Dave Matthews, My Morning Jacket, and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. Pre-order now at Amazon and iTunes.
Here are some of my other favorite Amos Lee songs. I generally like his earlier stuff better (Amos Lee, Supply and Demand, and Last Days at the Lodge) and haven't been as wowed by his more recent releases.
