Amos Lee: Not one particular thing inspires me. I look to the heart of the matter and how different things make me feel. Then I try to express that.
Amos Lee: I don't see any point in pursuing fame for fame. It is not fulfilling. It is perfect if you work at a craft, and people recognize it for that. That's a good thing.
Amos Lee: (on his affection for his music) It was just like falling in love with a girl. You want to be around it all the time. It keeps you coming, like a well. You can't get away.
Amos Lee: You never really get a chance to sit down with the people you love, unless you really make an effort to do it. It doesn't just happen naturally anymore.
Amos Lee: I'm not a jotter, but for the most part I'm constantly reciting lines in my head and sifting through them in that way. And when I find something I really like, or if something strikes me, then I'll write it down.
Amos Lee: (on how he feels about his record "Supply and Demand") As an artist you always question yourself to the end. But I can live with it. And I think I can listen to it, which is important. If I couldn't listen to it then I'd probably be pretty upset with myself.
Amos Lee: I definitely hope [my music] means something to people ... I can relate to soul, r&b ... whatever people want to call me is fine. I just hope it makes them feel something.
Amos Lee: The cool thing about being a songwriter, or a writer, I guess, in general, you can take on a lot of different things, experience a lot of different things, just by writing about them.
Amos Lee: My favorite time in music is probably 1970-75. Still Bill by Bill Withers, Harvest by Neil Young, John Prine's first album, James Taylor's One Man Dog--I hope I can bring the same sort of spirit I hear on those records.
Amos Lee: I am constantly thinking about songs and working out melodies in my head. Some arrive fully formed, but most come in pieces that need to be connected somehow and for me, connecting them is a continual process.
Amos Lee: I love what I do but there's certainly a part of me that always thinks what my life would be like if I did stay as a teacher. I think it's a beautiful job, although thankless in many respects. It's a job that is really vital to society and vital to children, and it's something that can make you feel really whole and full.
Amos Lee: (on entering University of South Carolina) I met my kind of people in there: down-to-earth, sincere folks who didn't belong to any club. They were all musicians, and they taught me how to treat my music with sincerity and integrity.
Amos Lee: As far as privacy goes, there's not much I can do about it. I put a record out and I really want people to like it. I think celebrity is something to choose. There's popularity and then there's celebrity.
Amos Lee: When you mix music, art, commerce, and business, sometimes you have to deal with things you might not normally want to deal with.
Amos Lee: There's always gonna be something you don't like about your job; and there are times when I get tired or whatever, but the up-sides far outweigh the down-sides with this job.
