Chill with Amos Lee in Aspen

Marina ChavezSinger-songwriter Amos Lee performs Sunday, Aug. 17, at Belly Up Aspen.

ASPEN ” Tired of the manic pace of Aspen/summer/the world? Amos Lee has the cure. The singer-songwriter has no trouble easing into relaxation mode.

On “Ease Back,” from his new album “Last Days at the Lodge,” the former Philadelphia elementary school teacher sings about sitting around talking with an old friend and a glass of wine: “Everything is fine/ Ease back, brother, let this clear your mind.” With Lee’s buttery voice and backing from the softest strings imaginable, Lee seems capable of bringing listeners along into peacefulness. The 30-ish Lee doesn’t offer up only vague good vibes; he’s also pretty good with creating characters and mood.

He performs Sunday, Aug. 17 at Belly Up, opening with singer-songwriter Priscilla Ahn in her local debut. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 the day of the show.
