    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!

    SINS, (formerly The Pretty Visitors) present their debut single 'Staircase'. The track shadows that cherished indie sound, introduced in the early 00's with a smooth injection of punk-rock attitude and swagger.
    As the saturated synths rise behind the lyrics "Just take your stamp off my design" on Josie Pace's driving single, "Battleground" we immediately understand this is not an artist who is weak when abandoned. Instead, this Detroit artist's music represents a piece of her solitude.

  • 'Featured Artist...14/January/2022...Josie Pace'

    As the saturated synths rise behind the lyrics "Just take your stamp off my design" on Josie Pace's driving single, "Battleground" we immediately understand this is not an artist who is weak when abandoned. Instead, this Detroit artist's music represents a piece of her solitude. The blistering glow of downtempo post-industrial beats, electro-pop melodies and layered soundscapes are home to Josie's captivating lyrics; she is a songwriter in the purest sense. The result is a pulsating sound that will haunt you with vulnerability while basking in Josie's world of self-reflection and unapologetic rock and roll attitude that Detroit is legendary for.

    When musician and producer Ken Roberts saw an acoustic performance of Josie on Facebook he was blown away, the raw and intimate performance captured the one thing all songwriters strive to achieve "believability", and he knew he had to work with her. The two started working together with Josie's songs as the foundation. As an accomplished guitar player, Josie molds and refines her songs acoustically only to tear them apart with Roberts' unique production style and his ability to create dark beats with grinding synths that compliment Josie's voice well. Songs quickly formed into a unique sound that pull from the likes of Depeche Mode and IAMX yet contain a high art fashion swagger as if you just bumped into David Bowie at a Halston Party.

    From the beginning, the style and the art of the music have been just as important as the melody and soundscape. Josie's latest music video "Pure Morning", featuring another collaboration with fierce femme fatal Sammi Doll (IAMX and Kat Von D), draws audiences to her unique brand of electronic rock and visual artistry. That theme continues with the videos for "Perfect Replacement" and "Fire" where fashion and desolation hold hands with Josie's in-your-face performance. The singles, "Underestimated", "Storm and Stress" and "Future" all test Josie's artistic style and the ever present desire to give her audience something fresh, new and authentic. The upcoming album "IV0X10V5", is to be released on Negative Gain Productions in February 2022.

    Josie carries the same commitment of style and artistry to her high-energy live performances. She has shared the stage with Combichrist, Powerman 5000, Stabbing Westward, Tim Skold (Marilyn Manson, KMFDM), , Daniel Myer (Haujobb, Architect) and Davey Suicide and has also performed successful headlining shows in New York, Detroit, and Los Angeles. With future songs and videos in the works, Josie Pace will continue the legacy of great Detroit Rock and Roll.

  • 'Featured Artist...12/November/2021..."SINS"

    SINS, (formerly The Pretty Visitors) present their debut single 'Staircase'. The track shadows that cherished indie sound, introduced in the early 00's with a smooth injection of punk-rock attitude and swagger. SINS introduce an exciting new approach to indie music, with embellished guitar solos and stir-crazy riffs, whilst still maintaining that underground sweaty gig application we all know and love – a true live experience.

    As heard on Radio X, BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing, and featured on ITV's - This Morning, SINS are a four piece unsigned indie rock band hailing from the South Coast.

    "For me personally, I just hear the music and melody, I've never been one to listen and fully ingest lyrics - unless they are slapping you right in the face. So, on that basis, I see it as an anthemic, spooky, whirlwind filled with a dash of pain. If it was a painting it would be Edvard Munch's - The Scream" - Aaron Evans (guitarist), Staircase.

    From meeting at college, jamming in a small shed, and playing dingy pubs in their hometown, the band have honed their craft and have created an unbreakable bond.

    After a number of years apart, through university and travels, the band have been writing and performing prolifically, with an arsenal of exciting new music to show. All music is co-written by the band collectively, with Connor Reid (lead singer and guitar) providing the lyrics.

    SINS are a charismatic and energetic live band who never fail to raise the roof. With an ever growing, loyal fan base, the band regularly sell out gigs on their home turf, whilst gaining support from local and national radio, extensive press attention and features with each and every release.

    Live, the band have headlined local festival Ice Breaker (Portsmouth), alongside huge sellout shows at The Wedgewood Rooms (Portsmouth), The Joiners (Southampton), Spice of Life (London), Heartbreakers (Southampton), plus countless support slots for touring bands such as Circa Waves, Jaws, Sisteray and The Family Rain.

    With their previous two singles 'Western Skies' and 'Head in the Sand', SINS have received plaudits from press, radio and fans a-plenty. Support has come from the likes of Radio X, BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, This Feeling,Indie Music Central, Modern Age Music, 3RRR, Orbital Radio and Express FM."

  • 'Featured Artist...22/October/2021...Pete Kavanagh'

    Where it all started:

    Pete was drawn to music from a young age, learning the basics in his local brass band. This is not a line you hear much in Irish musical biography, but in Co Kildare, where Pete grew up, there was a tradition of brass and reed bands, perhaps a legacy of the County's military history.

    Pete's instrument was the trombone. "I never got very skilful on the trombone", admits Pete, "but I did learn about tone, arrangements and key structure." In his early teens, Pete found a beat-up acoustic guitar in his grandparents' bin and something clicked. He became absorbed in the creative energy of music, honing his craft in earnest and learning to play and sing songs from the likes of Elvis, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Christy Moore and The Dubliners. In his early twenties, Pete began to write songs. He formed a band called The Scene, which was popular on the live circuit in Kildare. The Scene recorded four original tracks before disbanding in the mid-90s.


    In 1996, Pete met vocalist Pamela Halpin at a songwriters' session in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. The duo moved to Galway in 1997 and collaborated under the moniker 'Tongue'. Tongue was featured on two compilation albums released by Galway label Origin Records, produced by Jon Richards of Galway Bay FM, which featured artists including Ultan Conlon, Kirsten Hersh, Dean Friedman and The Devlins. Tongue performed numerous live shows in Galway and Kildare before moving to Edinburgh, supporting acts such as Juliet Turner, Scullion, Martin Stephenson and Luka Bloom.


    In the Spring of 2019, Pete began recording his debut album, Join up the Dots, at Arthouse Studios in Naas.

    Things didn't quite go to plan, however.

    In May of that year, Pete's father, Barney, sadly died.

    "I just withdrew from the world and retreated into a cocoon of sorts," remembers Pete. "I abandoned the remaining tracks I was planning to record – they just became less relevant. I began to write songs to channel my grief. I found refuge in music, which has always been a means of expression and healing throughout my life."

    As is the case for many artists in the year 2020, the coronavirus became a character in Pete's creative life. Just as Pete had finished recording tracks for the album, the virus hit Ireland and the album was put on ice again until June.

    After a long gestation, Join up the Dots, which has been recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Hally at Arthouse Studios, Naas, will be released on November 18th 2020.

    Pete is joined by a host of musicians on this album including Frankie Lane, Lenny Cahill, Mark Dudley, Patrick Hopkins, Noelie White, Jennifer McMahon,Barry Mulrennan, Joe Heffernan, Hally, Graham Hopkinsand Pamela Kavanagh. The songs delve into dark themes such as PTSD, mental illness, war, grief, addiction, unrequited desires as well as positive themes of love, peace and hope shining through. The music has flashes of alternative country, folk, jazz, and rhythm and blues, yet stays faithful to Pete's signature singer-songwriter/acoustic-guitar feel. Having said that, there is a rich array of instrumentation on the album with songs soaked in the sweet sounds of mandolin, banjo, dobro, Hammond organ, electric guitar, bass, acoustic guitar, piano, percussion with a sprinkling of synths. If Pete's strong voice carries the narrative in these songs, the female backing vocals add tonal tangents to the stories told.

    The first single to be released from the album is To Hold the Red Rose, an emotive song of love, hope, family and unity.

  • 'Featured Artist...17/Dcember/2021...Neu Sierra'

    Neu Sierra writes a new chapter in the story of Nordic Noir rock, as she and her warm insistent voice release the dusty and loud debut EP 'Sulphur and Molasses'.The title hand-picked from jazz standard 'Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most' refers to a 'spring tonic', that supposedly cleanses your blood after a long and dark winter.

    "The song describes a lasting melancholy that intensifies during spring, as life and light 'returns' and all you can do is sit there paralysed and watch. You wish you had a spring tonic to blow away the dark clouds, but it'd take more than just sticky, bitter-sweet sugar water"sighs Neu Sierra.

    Darkness is a recurring theme for the singer and auto-harpist, and the foreboding of a long winter wasn't easily missed on lead single 'Dirty Me' which marked Neu Sierra's November debut. Premier Danish music magazine GAFFA described it as a "folkish and gloomy song about abuse, channelling equal parts Nico and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. A raw, dreamy and relevant song about the seriousness of sexuality". This was followed by the alluring and sensuous 'For the Last Time', and between the two, Neu Sierra was able to celebrate more than eight months of heavy rotation on Danish national radio P6 Beat.

    Boy Of A 1000 Tears -'Sulphur and Molasses' also includes the romantic noise-ballad 'Boy of A 1000 Tears', a song with almost 40 years worth of history, since Nils Lassen - who also happens to be the producer of the EP - first sang it to his then girlfriend. The song has since been in the hands of some of Denmark's most prominent artists and producers. The song becomes something both filthy and grand as Neu Sierra breathes life into its thousand tears. The video for 'Boy of a 1000 Tears', edited by the singer herself, is cut from footage of abandoned refugee camps in both Syria, Afghanistan and Greece.

    "To me it's really a universal song of comfort. It's about wanting what's best for the 'boy of a 1000 tears' and all the other sad souls out there. I know I'm not alone in feeling powerless about how our elected representatives handle refugees. The video kind of became postcards from abandoned refugee camps, culminating in an eerily fascinating rain of missiles, that might as well have been fireworks at a wedding. And once again Afghanistan is even back on everyone's mind, which is just more proof of the futility of war"tells the singer.

    'Sulphur and Molasses' is out now on FIVE FOOT ONE Records.

  • 'Featured Artist...10/December/2021...Bad Boy Troy'

    The singer and songwriter known as Bad Boy Troy, has released his latest LP record, titled "Standing in the Shadows." The album is comprised of eight original tracks for an approximate listening time of 30 minutes. A modern taste of the stadium rock sound with a dose of southern comfort, "Standing in the Shadows" is an epic example of the American rock 'n' roll spirit, filled with octane and heat, heart and soul.

    Bad Boy Troy's style of songwriting is widely varied on "Standing in the Shadows," and showcases a broad scope of tones and tempos. The opening track, "Triple X Whiskey" even boasts a surprisingly jazzy melody riff in the country/rockabilly mode. His singing is reminiscent of Jon Bon Jovi's, and his guitar work is marvellous and unique to him, full of flair and character. His instrumentalists are likewise top-notch, the band respectively featuring Eric Brittingham of Cinderella (bass), Michael Hodges of David Bowie (drums), and Garfield Redden of ESP (drums).

    Intuitively, the studio crew for "Standing in the Shadows" is of a similarly high caliber. The LP is produced by Erwin Musper, whose credits include names such as Def Leppard, Scorpions, Van Halen, and a slough of others. Co Engineering was performed by Gregg Pressler, who has worked with Steven Adler, Warrant and Every Mothers Nightmare. Guitars were provided by David Yockey of Sammick/JTR Guitars.

    Having been inspired to make music by seeing the Beatles take the stage on the Ed Sullivan Show, "Bad Boy Troy" began a lifelong music career at age six. He cites as his main musical influence, father Sonny Tipton, mentioning others as an afterthought. These secondary inspirations include Jimmie Page, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Farner, Paul Rogers, and Jeff Beck.

    Bad Boy Troy has shared the stage opening for scores of titanic rock bands. These legendary names include (but are not limited to) Black Sabbath, Cheap Trick, Whitesnake, Loverboy, A Flock Of Seagulls, Air Supply, Sammy Hagar, Nitty Gritty Dirt band, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Deep Purple, Savoy Brown, Pablo Cruise, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Kool and the Gang, Ready For The World, Lisa Lisa, The Jets, Roger & Zapp, Starpointe, Steppenwolf, Black Oak Arkansas, David Chastain, and Toronto.

  • 'Featured Artist...03/December/2021...Tracey Barnett'

    Bridgetown is Western Australia's spiritual home of blues and roots, so it is no surprise that resident singer-songwriter Tracey Barnett has that music in her soul. Fusing traditional blues and country elements with modern rock rhythms, Barnett's music has taken her across Australia, earning her a WAM Award, chart success, and airtime on Triple J, ABC and community radio. Hitting the road in September, Barnett kicked off spring with a brand new album, a swag of regional shows and a sizzling new track serendipitously named Freedom.

    First making her presence felt in 2010, Barnett debuted with The First Of Many – a promising EP that introduced her authentic, heartfelt style. By 2013 her work was becoming more eclectic, and she captured a darker shade of her songwriting on the Blooming EP. Then, in 2017, Barnett reached the artistic milestone of a full-length album with the triumphant Heart, Soul, Feeling. Displaying more grit – lyrically and sonically – the album proved that Barnett's songwriting was maturing and had reached a place unrestrained by convention.

    Its follow-up (Barnett's forthcoming second album Eyes Forward) has already spawned three successful singles – Gotta Get Out, Eyes Forward and Darkness In The Light – each nominated for a WAM Song Of The Year Award. Produced by James Newhouse, the album shows off Barnett's ever-evolving songwriting, singing and guitar playing... not to mention the staggering arsenal she wields as a player (guitar, lap steel, resonator, banjo, harmonica, Hammond organ and percussion, thank you very much).

    Out on August 20th 2021, Eyes Forward's fourth single – Freedom – is what Barnett half-jokingly refers to as a 'therapy song'... something that she created to exorcise a demon within herself. She explains, "I wrote Freedom as a message to a part of myself I was trying to let go of. I needed to find a sense of freedom and stop being held back." This honesty and catharsis is only part of what gives the song its power... with its stomping rhythms and soaring vocals, Freedom is a barn-burning slice of the blues, itching to be unleashed on a live audience.

    And it will be given its chance to shine during the Eyes Forward Album Launch Tour, where Barnett will visit nearly a dozen WA towns throughout September and October. A multi-instrumentalist with powerful stage presence, Barnett is best witnessed in concert. Throughout her career she has made the conscious decision to remain solo, and as a result has created a closeness between her and her audience. This connection, along with her sheer instinct for songwriting, is what makes Tracey Barnett one the most exciting modern blues artists in Australia.

  • 'Featured Artist...26/November/2021...The Vaulted Skies'

    The Vaulted skies, a Post-Punk quartet from various locations around the UK, released their new single, What If I Were The Boy?, on the 5th November 2021. The band, comprised of James AJ Scott (Vocals & Guitar), Ben Singleton (Guitar), David Ferenc Korosztos (Drums) & Andy McFarlane (Bass), have been described as one of the most criminally underrated alternative acts in the UK

    Once described as the lovechild of Robert Smith and Boy George, the beard-afflicted, kohl-eyed singer-songwriter James AJ Scott put The Vaulted Skies together in 2013 to bring peace to the galaxy through a fusion of edgy alternative rock and danceable electronica, shot through with the dynamics of grunge and bouts of epic melancholia.

    Over the years, the band's performance has evolved from what was initially shoegaze level introversion to something altogether more engaging, captivating audiences everywhere from pubs and clubs to large outdoor stages. The team that booked The Vaulted Skies for their first London performance at Brick Lane's legendary 93 Feet East, reflected:

    "The crowd went wild for their set"… "A rocking, huge set - they sure know how to put on a show!"

    Career highlights include supporting David Bowie and Cure guitarist Reeves Gabrels on his 2015 UK tour.

    OCTOBER 2021 - What If I Were The Boy?
    Single Review - Aural Aggravation

    "So many bands over the last 30 years have striven to do the same or similar, but The Vaulted Skies have absolutely nailed it, and 'What If I Were The Boy?' is an absolute killer."

    Read the complete article by Chris Nosnibor. SEPTEMBER 2021 - A&R Factory - Live Review - The Angel, Nottingham

    "The Vaulted Skies is easily one of the most criminally underrated alternative acts in the UK right now. Anyone with a proclivity towards pensiveness and pioneering alt-rock should be paying attention." Read Amelia Vandergast's full review of The Vaulted Skies epic 24th September performance.

  • 'Featured Artist...19/November/2021...Karen Culi'

    Growing up in the suburbs outside of Washington D.C., and being from Oxon Hill, Maryland, there was always an abundance of great, cultural and progressive music around me. Ive always had an interest with music, but when I was five, If anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I'd say a police officer. Music often helped me when I was in a jam, so I decided to become a rock star.

    Not sure how I got to that point in my life, but perhaps it was from my elementary school teachers going over genres such as do-wop, pop, and swing — discussing great songs and the artist who wrote or performed them — artists ranging from Duke Ellington to Whitney Houston. To me, a performance is great only when the music is just as important. Without one or the other, the show can't go on. By the time I was eight, I was enrolled in piano lessons after getting an electric keyboard. It was arranged for me to get lessons from a man John McDaniel. Every Saturday morning, he and his feisty Pomeranian would greet me on the way in. He had a studio — inside sat two grand pianos and two organs for his students. There was always a slight smell of cigarettes in the air. I remember those days like they were yesterday.

    I was 11 years old, going on 12, when my family and I went out of town to visit my great uncle. There was an acoustic nylon guitar sitting in the living room, and I walked over to pick it up. My dad saw me and showed me the bare minimum when it came to guitars on the spot — everything from strumming and finger placements to produce a note. By the end of that summer, I had quit piano because I wanted to play guitar. I was HOOKED! I ended up buying a moded electric from a middle school friend. I got a few lessons from friends but eventually taught myself. I found it easier.

    When I turned 12, I went to the "Warped Tour" that took place at Jiffy Lube Live in Virginia — the venue used to be called The Verizon Post Pavilion. Bands like Hawthorne Heights, My Chemical Romance, and Fall Out Boy rocked the main stages and, of course, my heart. These were the types of bands that influenced me and led me to joining my first group. However, It was short-lived because I was kicked out for being too serious. I'm a perfectionist, and I know that can bother some people. I like to take my time in order to put out the best product I can. With this new goal in hand, I ended forming my own band. I learned from female artists like Karen Carpenter and Meg & Dia, and because of them, they've inspired me to be known for more than just my singing. My hopes are that people can see the passion I put behind my playing the guitar as well as my singing and songwriting.

    I was introduced to heavy metal and alternative by a girl named Nylisha — the music was great, and we became best friends after she gave me a mixed CD with songs from the Queen of the Damned soundtrack. I wanted to rock.

    I recently released a single called "Secrets," and I believe this showcases that aforementioned passion. It was one of my more difficult projects for various reasons. Writing and recording it was overwhelming, to say the least. Making a dope record was the goal.

    This song was produced by Austin Bello. He's a guitarist from Forever the Sickest Kids, who is also featured in this track. I am grateful for his help in creating "Secrets."

    I'm set to release more singles in the near future, and I'd like to invite everyone here to buckle up and join me for what's sure to be a heck of a ride! Thank you!
