The Reverend Shawn Amos is a true blues man. He may have been raised in the world of mainstream R&B, where he was fortunate enough to get an inside look at how masters like Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones honed their craft, but once Amos gets on stage, he brings the vibrant energy of a Chicago blues club with him. His latest, The Reverend Shawn Amos Tells It, finds Amos paying tribute to his blues heroes with energetic takes on Junior Wells and Elmore James placed alongside his original songs. Give it a listen, and then head out to Herb Alpert’s Vibrato to see Amos bring the goods in person. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Vibrato website.
