Bruce Hornsby's work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s 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, Béla Fleck, Justin Vernon, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. His performance offers a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push into new musical terrain. His new album, Absolute Zero, releases in April.
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 Billboard’s Top 200. His most recent album, My New Moon, opens with "No More Darkness, No More Light," a song that Lee reworked after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
