Amos Lee is another of my favorites.  My only issue with him is that I have found his albums to be inconsistent.  In other words, he doesn’t hit my mark all the time, but when he does, it is very good.  He is out of Philadelphia and has recorded 4 albums.  I highly recommend the first (self titled) and the most recent.  All have some excellent tracks.  This cut is off his new album “Mission Bell” and is a live version of “Jesus”.
