Madison Square Garden Entertainment announced that David Gray and Amos Lee will be co-headlining a concert on The Great Stage of Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 7:30 pm, presented by Madison Square Garden Entertainment and Live Nation.
David Gray’s return to the United States follows on the heels of his critically acclaimed 2014 studio release, Mutineers, hailed by The Guardian – which declared that there is “a rare comfort in hearing an artist in pursuit of joy.” Philadelphia native Amos Lee’s latest album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, topped the Americana charts for two consecutive months and received widespread acclaim.“A gloriously sexy voice - just the right amount of velvet and gravel, raved Associated Press. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
David Gray has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas. Gray’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and numerous accolades. His 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray's 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Line left off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots. Foundling debuted at #9 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart. David Gray’s tenth and latest Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. The lead single off of the album, “Back In The World,” garnered much praise and reached top 10 in the AAA charts. Mutineers is an experiment that seems to fizz with the joy of its own assembly. The sound of a musician making a clean break and some sharp turns but also reconnecting with the freedoms of an earlier dream, a rebuke and a salutation to all that’s gone before.
Singer and songwriter Amos Lee released his self-titled debut in 2004 and followed with critically acclaimed Supply and Demand (2006) and Last Days at the Lodge (2008). But it was with 2011’s Mission Bell that brought Amos to nationwide mainstream attention. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and contained the No. 1 Triple A radio hit “Windows Are Rolled Down.” Last year, Lee headlined amphitheaters and delivered main stage performances at top festivals supporting Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song (2013). He has been featured on numerous acclaimed television programs including Live from the Artists Den, Ellen and Live from Daryl’s House. Lee recently collaborated with Asleep at the Wheel on its star-studded Bob Wills tribute CD, Still the King Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, and joined the legendary western swing band during its Austin City Limits taping. Amos Lee will also record PBS’ Bluegrass Underground for broadcast later this year.
With a style that combines blues, country, gospel and roots-rock with a “strikingly soulful voice” (Entertainment Weekly), Lee’s career continues to reach new heights and earn the attention of fellow artists and discerning music fans around the world.
