    Visit The Nut Drivers.

    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

  • 'Featured Artist...19/June/2020...Cabela & Schmitt'

    Two Schmitts and a Cabela, that's how it all started. Two brothers and their best friend looking to rock the world. Like most kids with dreams of fame and fortune, all they really wanted to do was jam out with their buddies. Like all who came before them, they tried everything they could think of to get into the music business.

    This passion to play and sing and share their songs found them playing out anywhere someone with a building and electricity would let them...school dances, a garage, backyard parties, weddings, and more. Almost immediately, this young trio of "brothers" started writing and recording original songs. Oddly enough, when playing out they found that they really preferred playing their originals instead of covers, and they were connecting with their audiences.

    Well-rehearsed and armed with some studio recordings of their original songs, they started sending out packages to anyone who would listen. Very quickly, they determined that the music business was not as much fun as they thought it would be. However, their God given gifts for creating and sharing original music that was important to them grew stronger.

    Throughout the years, all three members have learned to play multiple instruments, honed their vocal chops, and refined their songwriting. Their musical goal has always been and will continue to be to write, record, and share with the world their songs of family, faith, and God. Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, home studios, and the internet, the trio have found a way to record and release 10 albums to date.

    Constant students of the business side of music, Cabela & Schmitt continue to find new and different ways to market and promote their music to their ever-growing legion of loyal fans around the world.

    Cabela & Schmitt are: Rich Cabela (guitar, keyboards), Wayne Schmitt (guitar, keyboards), and Tom Schmitt (bass guitar, keyboards).

    A MESSAGE FROM CABELA & SCHMITT

    We are a trio of friends who have been collaborating for over 40 years. We come from the heart of the United States and humble beginnings. Our only goal as a group at this stage in our lives is to share with others what we have so freely and abundantly been given.

    Every person has the God-given ability to choose how they want to view the world. We are all given a voice, in some way or another, to communicate how we see and experience the world. It is each person's choice how and when to use that voice.

    Cabela & Schmitt have chosen to expose our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings in the best way we can....through a song. We have always wanted to share our music without giving up this wonderful life we've been given, and we are so very happy and excited to be able to share with you!

    We want to express how grateful we are that you have taken the time to listen to one or more of our songs. We hope they have touched you in one way or another.

  • 'Featured Artist...12/June/2020...Ordinary Elephant'

    "Keep kind all that rises from your chest to your tongue. Don't ever let your words undo the work you've done," sings Crystal Damore on "Worth the Weight," a song that beats at the heart of Ordinary Elephant's potent new album, Honest. In the song, it's a two-line enjoinder from an adult to a kid. In life, though, it's a mission statement for ourselves as much as for others. And the work that Crystal, along with her husband Pete, has done on Honest is both filled with kindness and worthy of praise.

    Interestingly, if not ironically, in order to accomplish this new work, Crystal and Pete had to set aside the work they'd done previously, as a veterinary cardiologist and a computer programmer, respectively. The two met at an open mic in College Station, Texas, in 2009 and soon moved to Houston together. With her on acoustic guitar/lead vocals and him on clawhammer banjo/harmony vocals, the work of music continued on the side as both had full-time jobs, until they threw all caution to the wind and hit the road in an RV.

    Leaving the stability of a day job and the security of a career didn't come easily for Crystal. "It took a lot of time — and help from Pete — for me to get to the point that I was okay with leaving the career I spent my whole life in school working toward, to the degree that I was leaving it," she admits, adding, "to be okay with the fact that it may not be what other people want, but it was what I needed, and that was the important part."

    Bitten by the creative bug at an early age, Crystal had set most of that aside to focus on school and work: "Living on the road, before doing music full-time, gave my creative side the breathing room it need to come back out."

    And, boy, has it ever come out now that they've both committed fully to Ordinary Elephant. In song after Honest song, the Damores take on what it means to follow your heart and eschew all the expectations, assumptions, and limitations projected upon you by others. They also use their own life experience to point out that the "safe" route can be anything but safe, as they do in "Rust Right Through."

    For Crystal, though, it's just about telling the story in the truest, kindest way. "I think part of it could also have to do with empathy," she says, adding, "and empathy can take the form of telling someone else's story in song, no matter what gender that person is."

    Which brings us back to "Worth the Weight" and its stunning chorus: "You will wonder if it's worth the weight, the worry that wears you down. Half your life spent figuring out how to make the other half count." Honest is worth so much more than its weight, and Ordinary Elephant makes every kind word count as it rises from their chests to their tongues.

Currently gigging in Southern California supporting his debut album titled - Bridges Burned & Other Such Disasters

    Jimmy grew up surrounded by music, church choir and singing songs with family members helped him find his voice early. When he picked up the guitar at the age of 17, it took on a new dimension. He immediately began writing songs, and has not stopped since. A Black Eye Affair performance is always honest and heartfelt, with a song selection that anyone can enjoy.

    Drawing from broad influences, Black Eye Affair mixes easily recognizable elements with fresh perspective to create music that is instantly familiar. There is no rocket science to be had here.

  • 'Featured Artist...31/July/2020...Angel Forrest'

    In 1988, Angel Forrest began a musical career which would span over three decades – and counting. Her first album, Secondhand Blues, featured several classics. The energic vocalist's work immediately gained attention from critics and new fans. Her tribute show to the legendary Janis Joplin brought Angel into the public eye. The live performance was immortalized on her Angel Sings Janis Live album.

    Her first original composition album, Here For You, then sold over 30,000 copies and was followed by the other LPs, including her Wonderland Christmas album, the award-winning album Come Alive, as well as Mother Tongue Blues, which won her the Lys Blues Album of the Year in Québec and was nominated for the Recording of the Year at the 2014 Maple Blues Awards. Her last live opus, Electric Love, topped the charts around the world.

    The Montreal artist was named Female Vocalist of the Year six straight times by the Toronto Blues Society between 2013 and 2018. Never limited to blues, the 2018 Memphis International Blues Challenge Finalist sings in the whole country, blues and rock spectrum.

    Up to here, Angel Forrest has had a glorious three-decade career that's led her everywhere around the globe. Now in her 50's, the vocalist still has to go out there and rock. Throughout Hell-bent With Grace, her new album, Angel will give the perspective of an aging woman in the public eye and her lessons learned, as she feels like a little girl living so many changes in what can be perceived as the peaceful autumn of her life (She's Gone). The opus will also explore tough subjects – The Blame Game is about mental illness – as Angel takes a retrospective look at her own life, as wells as her relationships with the rest of the world and herself.

    Musically, the album reflects the rock influences of Angel, but she stays true to her country and blues roots, meaning that the songs still have this heartfelt, raw groove, which has always made the singer's success.

  • 'Featured Artist...24/July/2020...Shawna Virago'

    SHAWNA VIRAGO is a transgender trickster celebrated for her striking lyric-based songs. Her music twists together folk and punk, offering raw observations about survival in a predatory world, queer love, and sticking up for the underdog. Virago is celebrated as a music pioneer – she was one of the nation's first openly transgender women to perform and tour nationally, and has performed as an out transwoman since the early 1990's.

    Virago's performances are a fusion of original songs, storytelling and standup. Virago has been profiled online, in print and on radio including Bitch, Louder Than War, No Depression, Paste magazine, on NPR and PBS, and on left-of-the-dial radio.

    Shewired named Virago as one of the nation's "Top 25 Hot Femmes." The Advocate named Virago's song 'Objectified' as one of the nation's top transgender anthems.

    Virago is the Artistic Director of the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival. Virago is also a filmmaker, and her music video Transsexual Dominatrix has screened at more than 30 film festivals around the world, and was awarded Best Music Video at New York's CineKink Festival.

Virago has been featured in documentaries aired on PBS and NPR. Virago has composed original soundscores for transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey.

    When you think of traditional, "folk singers," transgender singer/song-writer Shawna Virago may not come to mind, but she should. She's the definitive of "folk music," which is not just an expressive body of work, it's a cultural movement, it's not just lyrics, it's a beautiful poetic story authored over a melodic soundtrack. - No Depression

    This San Francisco native is a singer-songwriter pioneering music space not only for her visionary talent but also her ability to be a voice for the transgender community – Eat Sleep Music

    "In these turbulent times, you may often wonder, 'Where's our Bob Dylan? Where's the bard of the 2010s translating the dicey political and social climate into musical stanzas?' ... Enter Shawna Virago." – POP DOSE

  • 'Featured Artist...17/July/2020...Grapefruit Sound Lab'

    Producer Robert Cotnoir aka...Grapefruit Sound Lab has honed an eclectic and infectious sound that pays tribute to many classic influences all while being refreshingly modern...

    New Jersey-based Grapefruit Sound Lab has brought a surprising twist to his unique brand of electronica with this departure track off his upcoming album, Eight Days Across America. "Dum Dum Gun" is a reflective, folkish departure from GSL's usual driving house beats and synth-heavy sound. Taking influence from medieval folk music, classical solfeggios and collaborating vocalist Sarah Naughton's pitch-perfect tone, this unique single relays a stark lyrical message couched in beautiful music.

    Sarah Naughton @illuminaughton

    Sarah Naughton is an actress, singer, dancer, and voice-over artist who hails from Syracuse, New York. She studied acting at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Sarah narrates a wide variety of genres, ranging from romance to young adult to mysteries and thrillers. Notably, she narrated the Audie Award–nominated Fairest by Gail Carson Levine. A Song About Freedom" is the second single from the full length Grapefruit Sound Lab album "Eight Days Across America"

    Amuka (real name Sheila Brody) got her big break after being discovered by George Clinton. She subsequently became a member of the Brides of Funkenstein, a P-funk spin-off act.

    She has since achieved five top ten hits on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, including the 2006 #1 "I Want More (Cling On To Me)", and has collaborated with artists such as Public Enemy and Pete Rauhofer.

    There is an undeniable immediacy, fluidity and inherent familiarity that is driving, narcotic and invigorating. Grapefruit Sound Lab is pensive, self-referential and philosophical with themes about pleasure seeking, wandering souls, loss, pride, jealousy, redemption, salvation, and the struggle between faith and fact, spirit and mind, good and evil. The mood is always thoughtful, sentimental and celebratory, seducing listeners with sinuous and ardently uptempo grooves...

    Bethany Ferrie is a 22-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter. Her recent successes include being made Richer Unsigned artist of the week. She has played extensively live at venues and festivals across Scotland including King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, The Blue Arrow Jazz Club, The Ice Box Arts and Music Centre, Queen Margaret Drive Street Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

    During the lockdown, Bethany has been writing new material that has enabled her to sign her first professional music publishing contract with EMI. She has also played for The Music Venue Trust and been interviewed by the CEO of MVT Mark Davyd.

    "A wise head on young shoulders, exemplified by the stunning lyrical execution" – Turtle Tempo "Bethany Ferrie has one of those voices that just feels warm and inviting right from the start" – LA on Lock

    "It's now just a wait to see when she blows up on the national scene" – It's All Indie

    Following the success of her previous single, Stayed, 22-year-old Glasgow born singer/songwriter Bethany Ferrie returns with a new track called Under.

    The song, which is being released on the 10th of July 2020, is about the heartbreak of being let down by people that you expect to be there for you.

    "It's always the hardest heartbreak when they're the ones to let you down. Friendships, relationships, family relationships; they're the things that can really make you or break you completely. I've never been the person that someone never wants to lose, and that sort of thing can eat away at you if you think about it too much. You end up questioning your own self-worth. It's a headspace that you slip into but have to claw your way back out of."
    When I started working on the production of the song,I was going off of two chords throughout the full thing. Back and forth, super simple. I took a lot of inspiration from John Mayer on this track–a lot of electric guitar and really narrowing the focus in on the lyrics of the song."
