Amos Lee performances: Jay Leno, PBS, Rachael Ray + Tour [Video]

Amos Lee

Having returned to the U.S. after a sold-out tour with British songstress Adele, Blue Note recording artist Amos Lee is making several television appearances and resuming his U.S. tour this month in support of his current album Mission Bell and an exclusive eight-song iTunes collection Live From SoHo that was released in August.

Last night, Lee performed "Hello Again" from Mission Bell on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Backing him was Calexico's John Convertino and Joey Burns, who both play on Mission Bell, which was produced by Burns.

The Calexico crew recently joined Lee for a taping of the Public Television program Live From The Artists Den that will air during the series' fourth season, which begins in early 2012. The performance was captured at the historic Fox Theatre in Calexico's hometown of Tucson where Mission Bell was recorded. A sneak peek of the performance, featuring the album's lead-off single "Windows Are Rolled Down," premiered on Hulu on October 6th.

Lee will perform "Out of the Cold" on Rachael Ray on October 17th.

He will also perform "Cup of Sorrow" at the 10th Americana Music Association Honors and Awards ceremony at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on October 13th, which will be shown live locally on PBS and nationally on November 19th as a special episode of the new season of the highly acclaimed PBS series Austin City Limits.

After earning raves for his U.K. shows with Adele (who lavished praise on Lee during her set), the artist kicks off a series of U.S. tour dates on October 20th in Portland, ME, with support from Pieta Brown (who appears on Mission Bell), followed by a hometown show in Philadelphia with support from Brett Dennen on November 5th, and an appearance at KBCO's Holiday Concert Series in Denver (also with Dennen) on December 9th.

Also in December, Lee will perform two shows with one of his heroes, singer-songwriter John Prine, on the 16th and 17th. Please see below for all upcoming tour dates.
