Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers with Amos Lee

About

Bruce Hornsby's work displays a creative iconoclasm that has been a constant in his 25-year recording career. The Way It Is, the title track of his 1986 debut album, became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bla Fleck, Justin Vernon, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny and Robbie Robertson. Philadelphia-born singer-songwriter Amos Lee began to break through when he opened for Norah Jones in 2004 and shortly thereafter for his idol, Bob Dylan. His music and vocal style reflect his love of blues, country and R&B. Mission Bell (2011), featuring guest artists including Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson and Sam Beam, reached the No. 1 spot on Billboards Top 200.
