    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

    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...07/October/2022...Emilie Lierre'

    Emilie Lierre is a singer/songwriter
    born in Manchester, raised in Portsmouth, with a unique sound.

    Emilie Lierre's low-toned, soulful, singing voice has a truly commanding presence. Backed up by the alluring chimes of her trustee Ukulele, the charisma that exudes from Emilie's performances is truly electrifying!

    A broken down relationship and a yearning to wander the earth lead Emilie Lierre to Australia where she busked to make a living and explored the southern hemisphere for 2 years. Appearances on ABC and Triple R radio in Melbourne gave her the confidence to pursue her musical dream and record an 8 track album on her return.

    A nomad by nature, Emilie was born in Manchester, brought up in Portsmouth, but comfortable anywhere. Lierre's debut album The Wanderer takes the listener on a journey of their own through her thoughts on life, love, and the world around us.

    Until now these 8 original songs have only ever been heard live or on the streets. And whilst a 'full band' album is in the works, our introduction to Emilie Lierre is a purely acoustic album featuring nothing but a lightly strummed Ukulele and Emilie's trademark deep soulful singing voice. Each song is recorded in just one take, stripped back to the way it was originally intended.

    This is an honest recording in every sense, portraying the message that Emilie's music is made with purpose rather than frivolity or exuberance. And the results are beautiful!

    The debut single, Extraordinary was released everywhere on 26th August and kicked off Part 2 of our Summer Singles series, celebrating the 1st year anniversary of the label.

    The closing line states "One day you'll see it's me that's extraordinary" and perhaps this sums up how we feel about Emilie Lierre better than anything we could possibly write here.

    We're certain you'll agree!

  • 'Featured Artist...12/August/2022..."Perpacity"

    Perpacity originally emerged as a collaboration between Ian Harling, based in the UK and Martin Nyrup, who lives in Denmark. Their 2015 debut album The Sinner Inclination was followed up by several well-received singles, including the silky beats of 'Obscene', the muscular 'Rule the Day' and a suitably darkwave take on Depeche Mode's 'The Things You Said'. Conflagration marks their fourth studio album release, which arrived via ScentAir Records this year.

    Prior to coming together as Perpacity, the pair had already chalked up many years of writing and composing music separately. Nyrup originally began writing music for computer games in the 1980s, while Harling had experience playing in live bands for many years.

    Intriguingly, their initial collaborative work wasn't music-oriented at all. Instead, the duo turned their talents to writing, with the subject of choice being mentalism – the psychological manipulation and hypnosis techniques that the likes of Derren Brown and David Blaine employ. In fact it wasn't until eight years working together as authors that Harling offered to sing on one of Nyrup's compositions, which led to the formation of Perpacity.

    Perpacity members are Ian Harling and Martin Nyrup residing in the UK and in Denmark respectively. Each has over 20+ years of musical experience, ranging from writing music and live performance to studio work and music production.

    "One of the reasons that Martin and I work well together is that we don't have the same tastes in music, often quite the opposite," says Ian Harling. Martin's musical influences include Depeche Mode, Yazoo, New Order, and Kraftwerk. These strikingly differ from Ian's, who says Irish bands, both indie and folk, such as Clannad, The Cranberries and Plague Monkeys have deeply inspired him, as well as Elsiane and Sarah McLachlan.

    Perpacity creates strong melodic songs and melodies characterized by their unique dark and moving electronic soundscape.

    The single "Granite" taken off of the forthcoming 12-track Perpacity album "Discordia" is about love lost and the repercussions that follow, finding that you are suddenly alone and vulnerable.

    The single will be available on all relevant platforms on 16 September 2022.

  • 'Featured Artist...23/September/2022...Cabela & Schmitt'

    Cabela and Schmitt on creating music 20 years ago as compared to today.

    1. Finding your road as a songwriter can be challenging without guidance.Where do you start, and how are you figuring that out for yourself in today's music landscape as compared to 20 years ago?

    When we discovered that musical ideas came to us as teenagers, we had no idea that we were "songwriters". We were only relaying the ideas that were coming into our minds. Even after 43 years, it really doesn't work any different for us. We develop the ideas we are given from God, create an atmosphere around them, and then a song. One thing we have held onto over the years is that we like to be outside of the box, allowing the inspirations to be what they are instead of trying to mold them into something they are not. We realize this isn't a popular route, but we enjoy being who we are. Music is fun marketing is work. Twenty years ago, the landscape of music was similar as today, as far as the most popular artist is concerned. The major labels seem to copy one another, trying to recreate someone else's big hit. Then basically, force-feeds that music to the masses by constantly pushing the same song until they reach the numbers they're after. As long as we have been listening to music, the industry has been this way. The music trends and technology are the things that change. Another thing that is different now is the number of genres. Today there are so many that it's difficult for new artists to figure out where they belong. We are fortunate to have had one another through the years to bounce ideas back and forth, not only about music creation but about music promotion. We have all learned together and are learning better ways to record, mix, and promote our music.

    2. What has been the most notable change for you today vs. when you started?

    Technology is by far the most notable change for music in general. When we started, music was listened to on 8-Track tapes, vinyl, and cassette tapes. The recording was exclusively on tape. Digital had not been invented yet. Today's home recording tools are excellent, especially compared to what we started working with. Today you can download albums in seconds on your phone!! Telephones back then were wired to the wall, and you couldn't walk across the room when talking to someone. Our instruments filled the back of a pickup truck when we played live or went to a studio to record. Today with the advancement with DAWs, plugins, and programs, you can carry a dozen grand pianos in your pocket. The way music is created and listened to today is mind-boggling compared to when we first started. It is wonderful what you can create with string ensembles and synthesizers with a touch of a key on a controller or your phone. Most of the advancement was unthinkable at the time. Technology has also helped us share music over the internet with one another. Today is much more powerful than handing cassette tapes to a few radio stations and mailing to record companies.

    3. What do you like least about today's music industry v the past decades?

    A lot of communication at a distance is fine and necessary but we miss some of the "in person" experience, not only creating the music but also sharing it with others. Sometimes when listening to the major genres it seems as though the songs are cloned in sound, structure and production. The sound is incredible, but a lot of the songs have similar chord progressions, melodies and arrangements. Every now and then one of the majors will come out with something different, but it's like they are afraid to take a risk, which is understandable. Growing up in the 60's and 70's, everybody's music was a salad of ideas and they were free to write what they felt. The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, Eagles, Led Zepplin, etc. They each had their own sound, but each song was unique. However, some of the new independent artists are putting out some great stuff these days! A very successful man once said…"if you want to be a success, look at what everyone else is doing and do something different".

    4. What do you like better about today's music industry vs the past decades?

    When we got started it always seemed like "yes" or "no', like we were depending on big studio and big music industry to get anywhere. Now we seem to be more in control of our own destiny by gaining listeners through our own and our associates' promotions. Also the sound! Production and mastering is miles above where we started. The impeccable tones and mixing techniques that are being used today are fabulous. We have yet to get a professional produced track, but we are seriously considering it. In closing we would like to say that music for us has been an incredible ride! We are not famous or wealthy, but we are happy doing what we do. Being able to share a talent that has been given to us warms our hearts.

    Sagreveht is a Mexican heavy metal band created by Hiram López and Aldo Hernández during the summer of 2021, in Culiacán Sinaloa, a bloody, violent and hot city located in Mexico's north-west.

    The original idea behind Sagreveht's music was just to have fun and keep Hiram's mid out of his recently (at the time) diagnosed cancer and the treatment he was going through as well as the pandemic situation happening globally.

    They recorded their debut album "Thanatology" in Hiram´s bedroom and released it locally, but due to the overwhelmingly good response the project had various local musicians joining the band such as Sócrates González and Feryn D Diaz on guitars, and Hugo Félix on bass.

    During winter of 2022 they got signed by worm hole death records to promote their debut album this being a game changer for the band in the foreseeable future.

  • 'Featured Artist...02/September/2022...Senja Sargeant'

    Rising from the club scene in Montreal as a teen, Senja Sargeant signed her first major record deal at 26 with her country band, Ladies of the Canyon. The all-female quartet quickly gained notoriety and a dedicated following, garnering award nominations from Radio Music Canada as well as from the Canadian Country Music Association for their singles "Follow Me Down" and "Maybe Baby" – both written by Sargeant. Senja toured extensively with the group through Canada, the USA, and Europe, sharing the stage with renowned acts such as fellow Canadians: Broken Social Scene, The Dears, Andy Kim, and Ron Sexsmith, and opening for legends like Kenny Rogers, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Alan Jackson, Lhasa de Sela, and Great Big Sea.

    After leaving the band and setting out as a solo artist, Sargeant relocated to The Netherlands. In 2020, just three years after the move, she was invited to appear on the enormously popular television program 'The Voice of Holland, instantly becoming a fan favourite on Team Waylon. Referring to her talent as "Godlike", Waylon ultimately pulled her from the competition, claiming he would prefer to collaborate personally rather than proceed with her on the show. Unfortunately, that claim never panned out. In 2021, Sargeant returned to national television on 'Beat Me: The Five Knockouts, where she again made a splash and won over the hearts of the jury comprised of Dutch celebrities René Froger, Ronald Molendijk, and Jan Dulles.

    Following her critically acclaimed appearance on TVOH, Sargeant was introduced to lauded LA-based singer-songwriter and producer, Shane Alexander who also has an extensive history of performing and touring in Holland. The two hit it off creatively and bonded over everything from David Bowie and Roy Orbison to Lucinda Williams and Johnette Napolitano from Concrete Blonde. Writing remotely on Zoom, the duo set out to make a timeless EP full of undeniable hooks and the kind of energy to connect with large crowds. Shane Alexander writes, "Our whole working relationship has been remote, which is absolutely nuts. Before Covid, I would have never thought it was possible. On our very first Zoom, I realized Senja was a monster talent and I wanted to help her write and record songs to complement her explosive voice and brutally-honest lyrics." The music for the EP was recorded live at Alexander's Buddhaland Studios in Southern California and features a dream team of A-list players including drummer Fernando Sanchez (Pete Yorn, Chris Cornell, LP), pedal steel ace Jesse Siebenberg (Supertramp, Lady Gaga, Lukas Nelson), bassist Vic Ruiz (Last American Buffalo, Conway), keyboardist Carl Byron (Hot Club LA, Jackson Browne) and string arranger/performer Stevie Blacke (Beck, Pink, Rhianna). Senja's vocals were recorded in Amsterdam with Alexander producing remotely. The songs on the EP deal with controversial subjects ranging from domestic abuse in "Thunderheads", addiction and mental illness in "Never Gonna Turn Away" to love lost in "Still Dreaming of You" and love found in "Now I Understand" – all from an empowered woman's perspective. Mixed by Grammy-winner Brian Yaskulka, and mastered by Grammy-winner Hans DeKline.

    Senja Sargeant's self-titled debut release show will be at Bitterzoet in Amsterdam on September 21st, 2022. The full EP will be available on all digital and streaming platforms on September 23rd, 2022.

  • 'Featured Artist...26/August/2022...Calvyn Cass'

    "I want to represent the people who stand in the shadows too afraid to be seen."

    Calvyn Cass is an artist carving out his own lane in a culture conflicted with change. With many in the world embracing the flamboyant rise of artistic expression, Calvyn dives right in. His soulful voice is inspired by artists he loves; Celine Dion, Destiny's Child, Bryan Adams, Brian McKnight, KC & JOJO and Mariah Carey, to name a few. The 90s pop era influences his lyrical writing style while the music fuses early 2000s sounds with today's modern pop twist. When it comes to his imagery, he goes all out. "For so much of my life I didn't want to stand out. I was bullied for being different and when I didn't know how I was different I would just imitate the guys around me to 'blend in'. It wasn't until I accepted my sexuality that I embraced the fact I appear more feminine. I can't control my natural features looking more feminine but I can control how I present them. I used to want to fight it but now I lean in. I'd rather stand in my light and be over the top than allow other to silence me anymore."

    Calvyn moved to Canada from South Africa in 2001. "The culture in South Africa definitely places men in the stereotypical masculine role. I always found myself more drawn to the girls in my life and around me. I loved playing dress up with my cousins in my aunt's clothing. I would run around in a wig... all behind closed doors. I never wanted to play rugby or anything like that. I was always imagining being a singer one day and would jam out to European pop hard singing to my imaginary fans. Coming to Canada there is a bit of similarity but the difference is that the kids who were different here didn't mind standing. I was only ever ok with being myself behind closed doors but here I could be myself. I didn't necessarily open up right away but there were people around me that recognized I was different and would often say it's ok to just be myself. I was in such denial I didn't want to listen but now I see it."

    Calvyn's music always comes from an intense place. A lot of his earlier years and experiences with cultural/life changes give him a unique perspective. "Everyone is going through something. My songs are sometimes about my experience and sometimes the things I see people I love experiencing. My goal is to write in a way that anyone could listen to my song and think of a time in their lives they felt that way." When it comes to creating imagery to embody a song, Calvyn says, "more is more. I love playing dress up and bringing my imagination to life. I've got an amazing team of people around me who cheer me on and lend their talents too. My goal is to do what Gaga did and have a creative team to constantly challenge ourselves with being inventive. It's about music meeting art for me."

    When asked what to expect from Calvyn, he said, "I have big goals. I want to create music that stands the test of time and that moves people. I want to represent the people who stand in the shadows too afraid to be seen. Expect the most."..

  • 'Featured Artist...19/August/2022...William Maselli'

    Composer, Writer, Producer, Criminal/Constitutional Lawyer, Historian(and ex-Chelmsford High Lion!). William Maselli, composer of the opera Draculette, works as a producer, composer, and writer in New York City. Draculette is the third of Maselli's three major works for voice and orchestra, being preceded in time by the John F. Kennedy Requiem (Lyric Symphony In Song), and the opera Spirit Fire.

    An Interview to get to know the man and his work;

    1. How would you describe your overall musical style?
    Melodic with an occasional edge of dissonance.

    2.Is there a particular person who influenced your music career?
    Beatles, Dylan, Wagner, Beethoven

    3.What can new listeners take away from your latest release The Dream?
    Originally an operatic aria and part of my Jefferson Opera Spirit Fire, it has taken on a life of its own as a rock recording, although without the typical rock trappings of bass and drums.

    4.Is there a particular piece of music you absolutely loved to create?
    I would say The Dream one of my all time favorites creating, as it just poured out of me melodically, true to the emotions I was feeling at that moment, and then the poetry perfectly captured what I was feeling.

    5.What is the best concert you have ever attended?
    Rolling Stones at Gillette Stadium; George Harrison at Madison Square Garden; Tristan and Isolde by Wagner at Staatsoper Berlin conducted by Barenboim;

    6.Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
    I see myself shifting back and forth between artistic isolation, return to travel to see performances and produce performances and recordings, and dealing with the practical world of survival.

    7. Is there a song on your CD "On The Back Nine" release that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?
    The Dream is definitely my favorite. It is mystic and real, classical ad popular, and very expressive of my spirit and self.

    8.How have you evolved as a composer & producer over the last 2 years during our pandemic?
    I feel that remains an open question.

    9. If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, with any composer(dead or alive) who would that be?
    Bob Dylan

    10.What's next for your music career?
    No one knows what is next, which is the mystery of life. I have in mind a large-scale performance of the John F Kennedy Requiem in November 2023to mark the 60th anniversary of his death, I intend to work on my major opera Spirit Fire to prepare for performances, and to get back to some live pop and rock to see if it inspires new compositions or recordings. And to produce some performances and recordings for my wife Olga Zhuravel Maselli, as well as to watch the progress of my son Claudio's burgeoning pop career as Clide. Seems perhaps enough.
