Music Box at the Borgata presents Amos Lee

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- Amos Lee comes to the Music Box at the Borgata on Saturday, July 13, 2024 as part of his US 2024 tour, spanning the country with dates in June, July, and September. Fans at shows get a preview of his stunning forthcoming 11th studio album, Transmissions, the artist's first body of original work in over two years. The LP is a testament to vulnerability, with his live shows creating an open, emotional space for performer and audience. Showtime is 8:00pm.

Lee just finished his May tour celebrating Transmissions and his incredible career, which included a special three-night stand at Nashville, TN’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center accompanied by the Nashville Symphony (Andrew Lipke, conductor). Lee will begin the next leg of dates at the end of June and continue through July. He will then join forces with Indigo Girls for a co-headline tour getting underway September 13 at Vail, CO’s Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and featuring sold-out shows at Dillon, CO’s Dillon Amphitheater (September 14), Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (September 15), and San Francisco, CA’s The Masonic (September 25).

Transmissions is Lee's 11th studio album and first new collection of original songs in more than two years. The album was heralded with the premiere of the graceful first single, “Hold On Tight,” available everywhere now. The official music video by Anthony Mulcahy & James Delahunty is seen here.

Transmissions sees Amos Lee continuing to expand his sonic range while sharpening his closely observed lyrics that squarely address death, aging, and love. Self-produced by Lee for only the second time in his chart-topping, RIAA Gold-certified career (following 2013’s Spirit), the Philadelphia, PA-based artist returned to an old-school style of recording, working with his longtime band in a studio in rural Marlboro, NY built by drummer Lee Falco and his dad out of reclaimed wood from an old church. Playing live on the floor for long hours in close quarters, Lee and his fellow musicians were able to capture the album’s twelve songs in less than a week. Despite the simplicity of the set-up, Lee augmented his band’s soulful, folk-funk sound with arrangements that extend the scope of songs like the autobiographical “Beautiful Day” and the upbeat, jam-powered “Darkest Places.”

“There’s a lot of existential stuff in these songs,” says Amos Lee. “If you really listen to what’s in between the lines, there’s a lot of grappling with your place in the world, grappling with loss. There’s a lot of grappling with the balance between bailing out the boat and rowing at the same time – the experience of writing music and playing songs while trying, as we all are right now, to make sense of a world that feels like it’s changing really quickly.”

Transmissions represents the first release of original music on Lee’s recently launched label, Hoagiemouth Records (distributed through Thirty Tigers), following last year’s Honeysuckle Switches: The Songs of Lucinda Williams. A full range of exclusive merchandise is available now at his official web store HERE.

Lee recently released "Beautiful Day," the second single off the album, that bathes the listener in the freedom of openness, and the vitality of empathy.

Tickets for the show in Atlantic City are available for purchase online. Music Box at the Borgata is located at One Borgata Way in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
