    Our Client Testimonials

    Elisa Brown Singer/songwriter Host of The Heart of Art-on PBS

    "Tom's talent for selecting an impressive array of gem stone tunes for his weekly broadcasts is consistently stellar. So, while I was expecting to bookend some great music for my week as the Featured Artist, nothing could have prepared for the caliber of artistry that Tom chose for the week that my recordings were aired.

    I was literally blown away -- and truly honored -- to have my works featured alongside such a world class line-up of songs.

    Thanks,Tom, for getting my music out into the world!" Visit Elisa

    A wonderful opportunity for independent talent." Visit Danie

    Steve Ratchen From recording artists Division 1.1, The Wizards of Winter and formerly of Alchemy X

    Tom is an absolute pleasure to deal with! His breadth of musical knowledge is surpassed only by his affability and charm- Having been in the recording/performing industry for many years, I have worked with a plethora of radio personalities and music show hosts and sometimes the process between artist and media can be confrontational or awkward at best. From our initial contact Tom was nothing but professional while being as cordial as if we'd been friends for years!

    This is a man who appreciates the diversity of artists on his programme and truly champions the cause of eclectic, independent music, that is, none the less, every bit as polished and produced as any record you'd hear on mainstream radio! And that is no small feat in and of itself- In an industry that has eroded so badly due to the generic refuse that passes as "music", it is only on programmes like Tom's Independent Music Show, as well as other like-minded grass roots shows that one can hear artists and genres that you would never be aware of otherwise- A noble and imminently necessary endeavor and one that I think Mr. Lambert is excelling in- Visit Steve

    Steve Vozzolo Tragic Poet Records

    Every now and then, something very good and very special happens in the music business. Being named the "Featured Artist" on Tom Lambert's "The Independent Music Show" is one of those very special events for me.

    I am an independent Singer/Songwriter, Recording Artist and Record Producer. I operate my own indie record label, Tragic Poet Records. I have released four CDs and I am currently working on my fifth CD, "The King of Vagabond Road - Songs Inspired by the Paintings of Jack B Yeats." My recent CD release is, "Fifteen Minutes Of Fame - Music Inspired by the Art & Times of Andy Warhol - Steve Vozzolo & The Tragic Poets." My songs have been covered by a number of other artists, most notably, Arlo Guthrie.

    The benefits I have enjoyed as "Featured Artist" are quantifiable in that my music has been heard world wide on over 190 syndicated radio stations by many hundreds of thousands of listeners resulting in new fans and increased music downloads and CD sales. My status as "Featured Artist" has resulted in significant interest and airplay for my music by other radio stations, as well. While I do have a presence on social media, Tom Lambert has made an "art form" of effective promotion on social media sites which has also been of great benefit to my music. Also, the acknowledgment, validation and recognition of my music serves as wonderful motivation for me to keep working. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to Tom Lambert and The Independent Music Show.

    Warm Regards, Steve Vozzolo Visit Steve

    Deborah Henriksson D.H.P Records

    Being "Featured Artist" on 'The Independent Music Show' has been a GREAT experience for me! Not only did the program air two of my recordings – one to begin and one to end the show – but Tom's commentary sparked extra interest that "only" airplay alone could not supply.

    I definitely recommend the Featured Artist promotion to other artists. Visit Deborah


    It´s a pleasure for an artist to deal with Tom.

    The Independent Music Show is a great opportunity for independent artists to get the word out. Tom handled everything very professional. Many thanks and our appreciation to Tom Lambert. Highly recommendable!

    'Featured Artist...09/March'/2018...Bruce Gibson'

    Bruce Gibson, 51, is an Americana singer-songwriter who lives just north of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He has jumped back into the music scene with his new album Moments in Between. Gibson first collaborated with Chris Cunningham (of the duo Storyhill) at Basecamp Studios in Bozeman, Montana, to produce his first album: Love & Lust & Hopes & Dreams & Fears (2010). The single Holding On from Bruce's first album was featured on radio airplay in the UK during summer 2011. After a hiatus, Gibson returned to the Montana studio to record his second CD, also produced by Cunningham. "I was out performing and promoting my first album and definitely kept songwriting with the intention of doing a second album," Gibson said.

      Gibson has been playing guitar for more than 30 years, but life has its interruptions. "In my 20s I had an music project in Florida and made the rounds of college frat parties and late night clubs," Gibson said. "But for 20-some years put my guitar down to pursue life: college, marriage, kids, and career."

    Gibson picked up his Taylor acoustic guitar a decade ago and quickly began writing again. His earliest musical influences were John Denver, quickly followed by Lennon/McCartney. Gibson carried that strong songwriter influence into his own music. His songwriting today holds the lyric as a centerpiece and includes hints of relationship, romance, family, strength, nature, heartache, and tenacity. These words are wrapped in music that incorporate elements of folk, gospel, country, R&B, and rock.

    "Most important to me though are the lyrics; I spend a lot of time on lyrics that connect the listener to the music," Gibson said. In Moments in Between, Gibson's songwriting draws upon observations, storytelling, and intimate experiences. "I worked on songwriting as a craft with marriage between lyric and sound. I also introduced a rock edge into this album." One reviewer observed: "Truly heartfelt tunes .... Gibson sings with conviction as he pours his heart out."

    The multitalented musician's latest CD Moments in Between includes a range of Americana styles from folk to rock. "It is a nice blend of stripped down acoustic and electric guitar," Gibson said. The new 10-song CD includes fully-produced electric tracks such as Sonny Liston, Soldier On and Know What I Know. Listeners will also hear stripped down heart-stirring confessional acoustic tracks such as Quiet Heart, Small Hotel and Light of Day. The folksy romantic duet My Way Home features X Factor top finalist Tara Simon.
    "This album is quality driven. Lyrics, music, and production took more time." Gibson said. Writes one reviewer: "His voice gives the song soul, and all the instruments bring it all together."

    The album is comprised of Gibson's vocals and ukulele. Studio collaborations include top music talent from Georgia to Montana: Chris Cunningham on acoustic guitar, additional vocals, resonator, electric guitar, accordion, piano and percussion. Parker Brown on electric bass, upright bass, electric guitar and vocals. Chris Cundy on Hammond B3. Drew Fleming on drums. Tara Simon on duet vocals and piano on My Way Home. Megan Makeever on flute and vocals. Jake Fleming on saxophone. David Poisal on mandolin.

    "My goal is to make relevant songs and connect with folks in lyric and music," Gibson said. The new CD is being promoted globally for radio play and TV / film. Gibson will be supporting his new CD release with shows and live appearances in and around the Southeast.

    'Featured Artist...16/Mar'/2018...Saint Jaimz'

    Based in California, singer - songwriter - producer Saint Jaimz has overcome incredible obstacles in order to follow his musical journey.

    A 16 year U.S Army Veteran, Jaimz served his country with great pride. "The army is where I got my start in recording & singing live." says Jaimz. It is because of a military talent show in Germany, that he is involved in the music business today.

    Once you initially listen to Jaimz's vocals, you are immediately taken back to the legendary R&B slow jams of the 90's. He is amazing! His creative approach to marketing have allowed him to entertain many offers from the biggest moguls in the business. Once you've heard him, you are hooked!

    His lyrics, his melodies, his voice, his productions can battle any major record label artist. Saint Jaimz has sewn up a seamless blend of throwback classics & present-day contemporary soul works, sure to please the most refined R&B critics & fans. Neo Soul, Pop, Hip Hop, & Rock, flow through his veins when he is creating his masterpieces.

    Most poignant of Saint Jaimz' testimonies is the night he sang at The Sugar Bar in New York and wowed an audience that included Melba Moore, Stephanie Mills, El DeBarge and Freddie Jackson. "I sang Maxwell's Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder) - blazed it - and everybody loved it". Freddie said, "Man, you can sing!! Come sit down". He was real cool‚ telling me to stay focused. I broke it down and told him, "Look, man, I don't know where I'm sleeping‚ tonight". He reached in his pocket, gave me some money for a room, gave me his number and said call if there was anything else he could do. "I will never forget that".
    > A few years later, Saint Jaimz returned to the Sugar Bar with a band and backup singers on a Wednesday night. He packed the place.

    He has the ability to make the legendary old school sounds, new again with his modern approach. "I write and sing "LIFE Songs" not "Love Songs." says Jaimz. Working with an incredible management team & celebrity publicist Danie Cortese, will most certainly veer his career to unbelievable heights in the months to come.

  • 'Featured Artist...02/Mar'/2018...Clay Hawkins'

    Blending rapid-fire finger style guitar and honest, heartfelt songwriting, Clay Hawkins creates his own unique brand of acoustic rock. Influences like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, John Fahey, Nick Cave and even Radiohead melt together behind his well worn yet lush vocal style. The music unfolds naturally, taking the listener on a ride that is both familiar yet entirely original.

    As far as his "story" goes, well that began in Phoenix, AZ...

    Born into a household of professional rodeo cowboys (truly) it wasn't immediately obvious that music would be the chosen path. But the nights spent on the road, listening to country music, (when it was still good) on the way to the next town made an impression. Since carrying a guitar around is a lot easier than hauling horses..., maybe there was something floating in the dust all along.

    Fast forward to the discovery of guitars, classic rock and the life sustaining qualities of coffee and a warm smile. It was all uphill from there. Eventually all roads led out of town. Clay refined and supported his new songwriting habit up and down both coasts, across Europe, in and out of clubs, cafes, street corners, bars, barns, back yards and back alleys.  Hanging his hat in New Orleans and then San Francisco, he listened and turned the sound echoing in those halls into the basis of the music he makes now.  What he calls, "Late Night, Boot Stomping, Road Music from the Heart".   That road became home, and eventually the wild hills of Northern California claimed another as their own.  With a rolling band of co-conspiritors, an assortment of slide guitars, old amps and a great affection for good times, (and a dog),

    Clay spends his days playing music around California and taking it one mile marker at a time.

    He still doesn't own a horse though.

  • 'Featured Artist...23/February/2018...The April Fools
    'A Blackberry Way Records Presentation'

    A killer combo comprised of Twin Cities music scene veterans who blend rock, country, pop, and more into a cohesive and timeless groove

    The April Fools began as a studio project for singer/songwriter Brian Drake, who intended to record a batch of his songs with help from a wide network of players to flesh out the tunes. Guitar, bass, and drums would be augmented by horn players, strings, woodwinds, keyboards, vocalists, and more depending on the specific song. The songs themselves spanned a broad spectrum—rock to straight-up country to alt-country/Americana to blue-eyed soul to Brit-pop to folk to 70's AM radio and more.

    The four original band members got together for their first jam on September 15, 2013 with the agreement that this was simply a project—a project with a beginning and an end. Then, a funny thing happened; they became a band. The ease of collaboration—the charmed chemistry that presented itself—was apparent almost immediately and they all knew, without saying anything about it, this was something they wanted to continue to do as an ensemble.

    Finding a cohesive thread with which to bring together those diverse genres, they began recording sessions for what would become their debut album. Released in April 2015, The April Fools garnered airplay on more than 100 radio stations across the U.S.

    The April Fools' self-released, self-titled debut in 2015 enjoyed airplay on over 140 radio stations across the US and Canada, including 90.3 KFAI and 89.3 The Current in the Twin Cities. The New Release "COLORWHEEL" on Blackberry Way Records is witness to the band's growth and musical breadth that can only occur after years of live performances and countless hours in the recording studio. So strap on your seat belt, kick back and enjoy the ride.

    For Brian Drake, personally, releasing the newest; "Colorwheel", on Blackberry Way Records is super rewarding in that it's a "full circle" kind of thing. You see, one of Brian's early bands, Idiot Savant, released what was not only his first ever release, but also the very first record on the label in 1984. Landing back at Blackberry Way after all these years feels like meaningful continuity - a homecoming of sorts.

    Things change—people come and people go as a matter of routine in the world of Rock and Roll—and life rolls on. If you're in it for real, you simply pick up and move forward. And, that's what we did.

    We're very pleased to introduce our two new members: Dallas, TX transplant and guitarist/vocalist extraordinaire, Brad McLemore; and the beautiful and crazy-talented Minneapolis veteran (Flamin' Oh's, Tetes Noire, and more) Terri Owens, on guitar, mandolin, and vocals. They are both killer performers, singers, and writers. We knew exactly who we wanted and were beyond thrilled when they both enthusiastically said "yes!" After our first rehearsal it was pretty obvious we all made the right choice

  • 'Featured Artist...20/April/2018...Banasfh'

    BANAFSH is a music band from Tehran, Iran that arranges and performs the compositions of Payman Abdali (aka Paiman Abdali, Paymon Abdali, IO Music Project, NIRUGAH).

    The music career officially started on October 27th 1987, when Payman (Paymon) performed his and the University's first "Electronic Music Recital" in Music Room 157, college of Music of California State University of Sacramento.

    After Payman's return to Iran in 1991 he concentrated on scoring for Theater, TV and film. He released his second album "Angel of Thoughts" (XDOT25 Productions) in 1994 in San Francisco and was nominated for "Best Theater Score" in Fajr International Festival on 1995 in Tehran, Iran. After years of recording music and scoring for Theater, TV and Movies and working as an Audio Engineer for other artists, in 2013 the idea of a performing band was formed. At that time the concept album "A Pledge for Peace" was initiating as poems from Iranian poets (some dating back one thousand years) about peace, harmony, respectful coexistence, comradery and joy of humanity were collected and translated into English. They were then turned into lyrics and songs were written for them.

    BANAFSH then evolved over the last five years with different members. The concept album "A Pledge for Peace" was recorded and mixed in Tehran by Payman Abdali and then mastered in Germany by @15Hz studios. It was consequently released in 2017, following an August 27th 2016 performance of six of the tracks in the University of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Iran.

    As far as the concept is concerned, the album is hailed as an important achievement by an Iranian artist/band as a true representation of the peaceful ideology of most of the Iranian people, independent and away from all political strata.

    Musically, it represents a cross-genre, unique and refreshing "East-West" style of music that transcends through all political, cultural and social barriers.

    The songs are in English and Persian and some instrumental.

    Band Members:
    Samyiar Mazaheri - Nima Ayubi - Aryobarzin Abdali - Reyhaneh Rajabi - Ava Menbari - Ali Naraghian - Amirhossein Khalili - Shohreh Kheiri - Payman Abdali

  • 'Featured Artist...13/April/2018...Rosie Cunningham'

    My name is Rosie Cunningham, and I am 23 years old. I've lots of experience session singing and gigging across the country and abroad including Park Pop in Holland with an audience of 300,000, session work with Amy Winehouses band, Sam Smith and Tom Odell to name a few. Hard working, determined, persistent, hungry, eager, team player.

    Ever since she could speak, Rosie Cunningham has had a passion for music and singing. Since honing her skills at the infamous Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM) Rosie has further developed as a performer by providing vocals for various artists such as Blues/Soul artist, Jo Harman, "The Earthquakes" and Brit award winner, Tom Odell.

    Rosie started her first commercial band Ipso Facto in 2007.

    The band Ipso Facto then broke up midway through 2009.
    Since the break Rosalie has been composing and recording material for a new project called Ketu. 'A mix of cinematic orchestral scores with dark progressive rock.'

    Rosie has also been working on collaborations, writing and recording pop music. Also working with the band Magazine as a backing vocalist, appearing on stage with them on their recent tours and also The BBC Electric Proms and Later with Jools Holland.

    Rosie was also with the band Purson and Purson officially called it a day back in April of 2017, but now vocalist Rosalie Cunningham has given us an update of her future plans. Last year proved to be difficult for the singer, however she has amassed a pretty hefty catalogue of songs it would seem. So much so, that she's now on the lookout for some lovely new band mates to help bring these tracks to life.

    Rosie's warm and bluesy vocal style has grabbed the attention of the music industry and now she is promoting her debut solo EP, "Black Jacka Hacka Man". Influenced by the music of pop legends, Beverly Knight, Aretha Franklin and Beyonce (to name a few) as well as good old fashioned Rock 'n' Roll, everyone is on the edge of their seats, waiting to see if Rosie will join the hall of fame among her idols.

  • A Danie Cortese Entertainment Presentation
    'Featured Artist...06/April/2018...Sirens'

    "Never give up on your dreams!" Based in Washington DC, SIRENS the all male band, is made up of 3 talented singer - songwriter - musicians & two touring supporting members (Merch) & (Production).

    Band members include:
    Stevie Lee Kinzer from Detroit "Rock City" Michigan,
    Josh Barnhart from Fairfax Virginia,
    Jacob Barnhart from Fairfax Virginia.

    The guys met at a show in Wyandotte, Michigan at the ZUBA music festival while playing in different bands. Interestingly enough, many great things have occurred from the show in Detroit, Michigan.

    Literally speaking, a band of BROTHERS was formed that day, along with a solid friendship & a common passion for music.

    Sirens (USA) was born after Stevie Lee Kinzer decided to move from Michigan to the Washington DC area in spring of 2017. "We quickly started writing songs and have developed some sweet melody, vibe and lyrical content." says the band.

    Each one of these talented musicians plays a critical role in their own right. Steve Kinzer plays Keyboards holding down the bass sections and synth sounds "So important and fills the room". Josh Barnhart plays the drum and SPDX for those sweet sounds you ask yourself "where is that coming from?!" Jake Barnhart Singer and guitar player will always leave people like wow, "I was FEELING his voice and lyrics".

    SIRENS is inspired by the sounds of "The Killers, Weezer, One Republic, Imagine Dragons, Sublime, Post Malone, and Tom Petty" There are other influences as well, but those stand out for the guys of Sirens.

    "We just love playing our original music!" says the band.
    "Watching our audiences enjoying our music & performing together is when we are at our best . Music is our life & our lives revolve around moving people with our music and making great memories in the process.

    Stay tuned for upcoming developments and SEE YOU AT THE SHOW!

  • 'Featured Artist...30/March/2018...Alicia Champion'

    Alicia Champion is 35 years old and has been a professional producer/ composer/ arranger and performer for almost 18 years with past credits in music/ film/ tv including, but not limited to Interscope Records, Universal Music Group, MTV, Disney, ESPN, plus many more. Her work has been endorsed by artists like Steven Tyler and Patty Larkin, and she's also clocked time on the TV screen, winning VH1's reality-based contest, "You Rock With Melissa Etheridge," and appearing on Fox's musical series, "Glee."

    Alicia's debut music video, "Bi," was hailed globally for its unapologetically bold declaration of bisexual pride.

    "The bisexual rock anthem you didn't know you needed." - HuffPost

    Alicia produces music of all genres and works very closely with a multitude of bands and artists every year to craft and refine their sound. She is an avid perfectionist and aims to impress.

    In June 2016, Champion released her first new original recording in thirteen years and debuted a music video for the single, "Bi." In 2018, she followed up that release with "My Super Girl," which is currently making rounds on the global radio circuit.

    Alicia's homemade tribute song and video to her wife, Danielle LoPresti, quickly became a viral hit after Supergirl actress, Chyler Leigh called it "insanely beautiful and inspiring" in a touching tweet.

    "My Super Girl" is an original song and video tribute by Oakland-based musician, Alicia Champion, to her partner of 14 years, Danielle LoPresti.

    Uploaded to YouTube on her birthday, January 25, 2018, the day also serves as the five year anniversary of LoPresti's late stage cancer diagnosis.

    The moving imagery in the video that chronicles the couple's decade-plus love story is underscored by a performance from Champion so passionate, it could water the most stoic of eyes.

  • 'Featured Artist...23/March/2018...Kyle Carey'

    Possessed of an elegant grace, on 'The Art of Forgetting' Kyle Carey weaves together resonant threads of Celtic and American roots music into a rich tapestry of acoustic storytelling. Produced by four-time Grammy winner Dirk Powell, the album unites an all-star international cast of musicians: Louisiana's Sam Broussard on guitar; Scotland's John McCusker on fiddle; the Netherlands' Ron Janssen on octave mandolin; Nashville's Kai Welch on trumpet; Ireland's Mike McGoldrick on Flute; and North Carolina's Rhiannon Giddens on backing vocals. Powell, one of the world's leading experts on traditional fiddle and banjo styles – particularly Cajun – lends his particular skills as well.

    Carey's own story is as worldly as her music, raised by her schoolteacher parents first in the Alaskan Bush (where she heard Yup'ik Eskimo spoken as often as she heard English), and then in rural New Hampshire. She studied literature in college, and then travelled to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia on a Fulbright Fellowship to begin her study of the Gaelic language and its music. Carey is one of those scarce-as-hen's-teeth Irish-Americans fluent in the language of her ancestors.

    That was followed by a two-year sojourn on the Isle of Skye; there she cemented her command of the Gaelic language and fell under the tutelage of Christine Primrose, a native of nearby Lewis and one of Scotland's most revered traditional singers. From Primrose she learned the secrets of pronunciation and tone that distinguish those who sing from the deep heart of that music.

    Carey has showcased that style in the traditional Gaelic songs—two on each album—that have graced her previous CDs and also this third one. Her 2011 debut, 'Monongah' was recorded in western Ireland and produced by Donogh Hennesy of the acoustic super-group Lùnasa. 'North Star', released in 2014, was recorded this time in Scotland, and was produced by Seamus Egan, a founding member of Solas.

    In her original material, however, she breaks new ground in her ability to make that style the pulse of a new American sort of folk music. The essence of that revolution lies in the real distinction Carey draws between Celtic Americana—i.e., the well-traveled path of American musicians performing in the style of traditional Celtic music—and the Gaelic Americana that she writes and performs. Her music is innovative not only in its bone-deep feel for Celtic tradition, but in all that she is able to graft on to it by way of a personal vision as capacious as the North American continent.

    The "Americana" portion of this synthesis has been plucked variously from bluegrass, gospel, and Appalachian ballads and fiddle tunes; in the lyrics from personal experience, Appalachian folktale, Dustbowl narrative, the Old and New Testaments, Greek mythology, and the rough-hewn poetry of West Virginia's Louise McNeill.

    Celtic Beat has noted that some Celtic purists have found Carey's Gaelic Americana upsetting—which is good, as "that is what makes her such a valuable artist." A spokesman for the World Music Network, which will be distributing The Art of Forgetting, entirely agrees: "Carey represents the true vision of a transatlantic artist."

    There may well be a well-travelled path for folk music in these transatlantic lanes, but no one has done it like Carey—to shift into reverse, to go back to the graves of her ancestors, to learn the language they spoke, the songs they sang, and to use this knowledge in creating a new sort of American folk music, one that continues to cross boundaries, to forge alliances.

    "Take the North Star for your journey," Carey sings in that duet with Rhiannon Giddens. She has done so, and it has brought her—and her audience—to this, her third release, and the most fully wrought realization of her vision.
