Amos Lee performs his “My New Moon Tour” at the Paramount Theatre.
Amos Lee has announced the first of his 2019 U.S. headlining tour dates, in support of "the most personal and deeply felt of his seven studio albums" (Billboard), My New Moon.
My New Moon has received some of the highest critical praise of Lee's career, lauded as "music to help listeners heal" by Salon and for his "soulful voice and empathetic lyrics" by NPR Music.
