    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

Michael attended The Johns Hopkins University B.A., The Peabody Conservatory, and Berklee College of Music. He is a founding member of the world renowned Drummers Collective NYC, where he taught for over twenty-five years. Michael is currently Professor of Drum Set Studies and was the head of the Jazz Department (2005-2010, 2015-2017) at the Escola Superior de Música, Artes e Espectáculo (ESMAE) in Porto, Portugal. He is also the founder and artistic director of The International Drum Academy, Lisbon,Portugal.

    Michael has performed and/or recorded with Paul Anka, Chuck Berry, Charles Brown, Tom Jones, Darlene Love, Milt Hinton, Tom Harrell, Bob Stewart, Teo Macero, and The Michael Lauren All Stars, whose debut album "Once Upon A Time In Portugal" was chosen as one of the 10 best national albums (Portugal) of 2016. Michael has worked in Broadway theatre productions, in the studios of New York City recording jingles, industrials and albums, and was also a staff drummer for the music publishing company Famous Music.

    The Michael Lauren All Stars play exciting, eclectic, accessible, contemporary Jazz rooted in the Hard Bop tradition. Their new album "Old School / Fresh Jazz" presents a mix of duets and larger ensemble pieces which not only showcases Michael's versatility as a drummer, but highlights the talents of the All Stars.

  • 'Featured Artist...30/Nov'/2018...Carlos Jones & The P.L.U.S. Band'

    Carlos has been entertaining audiences for over 35 years throughout the eastern half of the United States, first as a member of the roots reggae group "I-Tal", and then with the legendary "First Light", before finally pursuing a solo career with his current group – the Peace, Love, Unity Syndicate (aka "The P.L.U.S. Band"). Choosing to focus on bringing a positive message with his music, Carlos has continued to win a diverse group of new fans everywhere he plays.

    With headline performances at Cleveland ROCKSNYEVE, Jamaica's 'JamRock 2010', Idaho's 'Marley in the Mountain Fest', Wade Oval, Painesville Party in the Park, Warren Amphitheatre, Springfield Amphitheatre, and the Midwest Reggae Festival to name but a few, Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band will be rockin' the house with their unique brand of high energy "put yer dancin' shoes on" reggae.

    At the age of 50, he's married to a family of fans that come out every week to see him.

    "It's the love I get from the people that enjoy the music," says Jones, explaining his longevity. "It's that sense of community and camaraderie; that's what I live for. Because we're so insulated from each other and so isolated from each other, when we get together under that umbrella of one love — it's such a beautiful feeling."

    Recorded with the help of Jacob Fader, leader of the Cleveland Afro-Pop group Mifune, who engineered and co-produced the recording, Leave a Trail is a collection of 12 songs written by Jones in his trademark roots-reggae style, with inspirational messages woven throughout with his warm, compelling voice.

    Carlos Jones & the P.L.U.S. Band has been one of the top regional draws over the last 5 years, performing at clubs, festivals, and concerts such as Cleveland House of Blues, Midwest Reggae Festival, Springfield (OH) Arts Festival, Nelson's Ledges Quarry Park, The Tall Ships Festival, and the Kneadmore Reggae Festival.

    The group attracts a widely diverse crowd, showing an almost universal demographic appeal. The group's first release – "Roots With Culture" saw modest success as the song "Torchbearer" was picked up by XM/Sirius Satellite Radio and broadcast to a national audience. The song was also licensed to and included in a college textbook (World Music: A Global Journey/Miller & Shahriari/Routledge Publishing). Jones also had one of his tracks included in the movie trailer for the recent Matthew Mcconaughey movie, "Surfer Dude."

  • 'Featured Artist...18/Jan'/2019...Sam Sliva'

    Take one listen to Sam Sliva and you'll remember why you fell in love with music to begin with. Now based in Austin, Sliva grew up in the Houston area listening to everything from Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin to George Strait and John Lee Hooker.

    "I like to combine all of my influences and make one collective sound," Sliva says, and he did just that on his most recent disc, "…And the People Say.". Elements of reggae, country, rock, blues, R&B and folk all intertwine to create something indefinable but coherent. Although it may best fit into Adult Contemporary or Americana rock playlists, the music retains a distinct edge and bluesy swagger that marks it as characteristically Sliva.

    As adept a guitarist as he is a lyricist and songwriter, Sliva admits that he's self taught and says "It really shows through in my music.

    Radio immediately took notice as introductory single from "...And the People Say," "It Is What It Is," initially charted at #51 on the AC charts and opened the door for Sliva to reveal more of himself and peel back the layers of his distinctive style and sound. Even before radio took hold, Sliva was already developing a following throughout Texas, Oklahoma and the Midwest and has built his fan base the old fashioned way: one show and one fan at a time.

    With roughly 1200 live shows logged in over the past 6 years, Sliva thrives on the road. More recently, his touring schedule has seen him branch out from the Texas circuit to the midwest, southeast, westcoast and beyond while sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the industry.

    Sliva's soulful vocals and ability to craft not only catchy hooks, but also vivid and memorable lyrics as well as his eclectic style and ability to meld genres puts him in good company, allowing him to sit easily in playlists next to everyone from Michael Franti to Eli Young Band to John Mayer to Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

    "It's been said before, but the only way I know how to be immortal is through music," Sliva says. "I don't care about making a million dollars or selling a million records. Basically, I just want to be liked and appreciated by people who know what good music is."

    Those two things don't have to be mutually exclusive and as his last two album show, Sliva has the talent and ability to accomplish both. His reputation and following can only grow, spreading from the Midwest to both coasts, as he tours behind his next project and continues to break genre barriers for anyone who simply loves good music.

    LILITH AND THE KNIGHT are surely one of the most visually captivating bands on the UK rock scene. Assisted by a technically superb trio blazing a trail through the landscape, Lilith's mesmerising vocals and contagious refrains set the band apart from the pack. The up-and-comers release their brand new single, Fallen, on Friday 4th May. The song is also accompanied by a supremely powerful and hauntingly atmospheric video that ideally compliments the track.

    Reared on Black Sabbath and The Beatles, LILITH AND THE KNIGHT produce a hypnotic blend of hard rock rammed with ferocious and driving riffs and a thunderous backbone. In vocalist Lilith, the group have a truly unique character; outside of the band, Lilith spends her time volunteering in Namibia - working with children with AIDS, as well as performing as a competitive pole dancer. Helping the needy and swinging on the pole demands strength in all capacities.

    After their inception in 2016, the London quartet released their debut single, Wake Up - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uJWD52iRBo, to much support and praise. The single was playlisted by Total Rock for over six weeks and it firmly placed the emerging hard rockers on the map. LATK continued their surge with their debut EP, Insanity, which garnered acclaim from Moshville Times, Metal Gods TV, Mayhem Music Magazine and Metal Talk, to name just a few. The foursome also dropped a video for Insanity - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aGaAB0XQWU and this only furthered their growth and reach. Now with an army of followers in tow, the release of their new single,

    LILITH AND THE KNIGHT will take over your world.

  • 'Featured Artist...28/December/2018...Deborah Crooks'

    Deborah Crooks

    Born and raised in rural area of California, Deborah grew up surrounded by nature, but close enough to San Francisco to be influenced by the city's history of social, musical and political upheaval. Her lyric-driven and soul-wise music draws on folk, rock, and Americana and is often compared to Lucinda Williams and The Cowboy Junkies. Venturing into everything from funk and reggae to rock and blues, her expansive and eclectic sound has evolved over her years earning an Environmental Studies degree at UC Santa Cruz; studying writing and poetics at The Naropa Institute in Boulder, CO; voice and yoga in Mysore, India, and co-writing and collaborating with her Bay Area peers.

    She's released several CDs and EPs of critically noted original music, including the acclaimed 2013 release, Little Bird (produced by Art Khu and described as "a masterful piece of work"). She again worked with Khu on 2016's 7-song CD, Beauty Everywhere, which was recorded at Tiny Telephone Studio in Oakland.

    Regularly performing regionally and throughout the US, her music has appeared the PBS Series Road Trip Nation and several compilations including the Songwriters From the Fog Compilation V1. Along with her solo work, she confounded the band Bay Station with Kwame Copeland; contributes prose and poetry to Deborah Slater Dance Theatre; has led writing groups and spoken about songwriting and creativity at Macworld and SXSW. A life-long writer, her writing has appeared in many publications including No Depression, The Sun, Common Ground, and "The Thinking Girl's Guide to Enlightenment."

  • 'Featured Artist...14/December/2018...Brock Zeman'

    When it comes to storytelling, Brock Zeman is a master craftsman. The Canada-based singer-songwriter has spent the past 12 years carving and chiseling Americana soundscapes, drawing from roots-rock and alternative country. But what separates Zeman from his contemporaries isn't a willingness to speak truth – it's his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville and the traditional framework of genre. What gives Zeman's stories force isn't that he's just singing a narrative – he's living it.

    Over the course of his career, Zeman has released 12 studio albums, one live record, toured North America extensively and received praise from numerous press outlets. "His songs have more depth than can be realized first time through, which only enhances with each listen," wrote Penguin Eggs. Zeman has also won a slew of songwriting awards, including 2nd place at both 2016's Unsigned Only Competition as well as the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) for his track "Pulling Your Sword Out Of The Devil's Back." In 2017 he returned to ISC as a finalist with his song "Dead Man's Shoes."

    "I was inspired to write from the feeling I got when I listened to music," Zeman recalls about his childhood. "I always hoped I could pass on the same overwhelming feeling to others."

    Beginning his career as a punk rocker, Zeman's musical tastes gradually expanded to a love for country, bluegrass and roots. After years of experimentation, and with the help of longtime collaborator Blair Hogan, he carved a place for himself in the realm of Americana. His discography spans 12 albums – plus one live record – over 12 years, including his most recent releases: The Carnival is Back in Town (2017), Pulling Your Sword Out of the Devil's Back (2015) and Rotten Tooth (2013).

    With an acoustic guitar and rhaspy voice, à la Greg Brown, Tom Waits and Mickey Newbury, Zeman has managed to preserve the DIY ethos of his punk rock upbringing. He's an engineer and producer who not only tracks his own material, but has recorded other artists in his Ontario studio (called The Big Muddy), including Nashville troubadour David Olney. He also does voice-over work for television, and created his own booking agency named Green Room Music Source Canada.

    Brock Zeman's 13th studio album is expected out in spring 2018. He'll be out supporting the release on tour in North America and the UK throughout the year.

  • 'Featured Artist...07/Dec'/2018...Lana Blac'

    The punch of thrash, the lyrical mysticism of doom, the monastic stylization of goth rock and the angular grooves of industrial music. Individually each one of these heavy rock subgenres is a force to be reckoned with, but when wrapped together in the epic new single "Suck You In" by up and coming metal singer Lana Blac, they make for a hybrid that will literally destroy anything that comes in its path. Blac's debut album Nocturnal is a leviathan of an LP; its content is diverse, multilayered and exotically packaged in a firm but generously well-produced format, and this song perhaps captures its acerbic artistry better than any other in its track listing. Defined not by its booming drums or gruff guitar, "Suck You In" is a testament to Blac's skills as an original songwriter and surprisingly agile singer in a genre sadly dominated by replicators in as of late.

    The relationship between the bassline and the drums is a major focal point in this track. While the bass is fine with hanging back in the shadow of the guitar and generating the gravity in the grooves, the drums are impatient and competitive, trying everything they can to stamp out the effect of the other instruments. In this sense Lana Blac is sort of like a sonic referee – she's keeping everything moving at an even pace through her simplistic execution behind the microphone, while the submissive bass and the abusive drumming create their own set of theatrics to entrance us and keep us glued to our speakers. Mindy McCall

    Lust, betrayal, revenge, and independence are prominent themes that rise from the ashes as Blac stalks and propels her way through Nocturnal. A rocky, ruinous, but ravishing relationship is the focus of "Recipe for Disaster". "The Game" is a sexy, but strong MF, while the spellbinding vibe of "In The Darkness" is a perfect track for Halloween.

    "Blac Ice" chills and thrills with monster movie organ notes, baroque harpsichord runs, and sinuous guitar motifs. The shivery instrumentation is an uneasy bed for Blac's winding vocals to lie in, as she builds to a vocal crescendo that's full of regret. She's looking back at a past relationship that's broken beyond repair, ruefully sighing, "You will crash and burn / for what you did behind my back / Deceit – I'll show you how it feels…"

    The reflective "Soul Stalker" amps up the alt-rock with supple, but lurching guitar and bass lines, subdued drum beats, and simmering cymbals strikes. The song splits into a different personality midway through with shouted vocals and more lumbering pace.

    Closer "Crave" sweeps by with more romantic (and maybe morbid?) sentiments as Blac sings bittersweetly about her love, "I know… that nothing will ever last / I want to hold your hand / from now to the grave / I want you, I love you / It's you that I crave." http://www.rebelnoise.com/reviews/nocturnal-lana-blac
