Signed to jazz-heavy Blue Note records, former elementary-school teacher Amos Lee is the Norah Jones of the folk world. And instead of rocking the piano-heavy torch songs, he falls back on stringed instruments such as guitars and ukulele. His sound is reminiscent of folkies such as Richard Swift or Elliott Smithbut with a little more warmth and a little less edge. Perfectly geared toward the 30-something set.
