The duo AM and Shawn Lee might not be a household name, even in underground circles, but that will most likely change soon. AM was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, bred on Americana styles and Philly soul. Shawn Lee hails from London, and provides his own blend of electro-soul to the palate. The result is a sound that is centered in the future yet has a very distinctive sound.
The duo has signed to venerable DC-based label ESL and is touring Europe this spring. The album Celestial Electric is out now, and my favorite track, “City Boy,” has been on repeat. Check it.
