BANDIT BRINGS THE LIGHT TO AMOS LEE'S 'MY NEW MOON TOUR'

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Amos Lee is out on tour with a lighting package once again provided by Bandit Lites. With a musical style that combines elements of folk, rock and soul, Lee’s seventh studio album My New Moon draws on his gift for purposeful storytelling, remarkable vocals and skilled instrumentals.

Lighting designer Jay Waddell found inspiration from listening to Lee’s music, pulling design elements that would both meet the needs of the artist and make sense logistically saying, “I like for there to be continuity between my designs and an artistic element that comes from the artist. I typically pull that inspiration from either album artwork or a theme for the tour. Sometimes the concept can be very literal, other times it is a looser connection, maybe a simple shape or a vibe.”
