    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

  • 'A Stephen's Indie Picks Presentation'--'Featured Artist...31/MaY/2019...Rusty Smith'

    As a young man, Rusty Smith made his living as a working musician playing bass and then transitioned into the field of recording and mixing in his thirties. He grew up in Dallas, Texas and was active in the local music scene as a bass player in the early 70's. The first band he was in was in 1965 at the age of 12. One of his band mates was Mickey Mantle Jr. , son of the New York Yankees player. Other local musicians he crossed paths with over time were Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Eric and Larry Tagg, Brent Bourgeois and Rocky Athas.

    After playing in club bands for several years, Rusty moved into being a session bassist in Dallas and played on several tracks for artists such as Texas songwriters, Don Magee and Jon Early. Soon he realized the process of making records was something he loved and he moved into being a recording engineer.

    Rusty relocated to Los Angeles in 1987 and moved into the field of sound mixing for movies and television. It was during the big switch from analogue post production to digital and he got to ride the wave of change while working on some high profile shows. The biggest show being The Simpsons. The opportunity arose in 1992 to mix the dialogue and music for "The Simpsons" and it turned into a 15 year ride with over 350 episodes mixed. He also earned three of his 7 Emmy nominations mixing the Simpsons.

    His career in mixing television included HBO's "Deadwood", "Rome", Showtime's "Masters of Sex" as well as "Ray Donovan". He mixed for 20 years at Sony Pictures Studios and for the last 2 years at Universal Studios.

    In 2008 he started sitting in with local musicians in Big Bear California, a small mountain resort town that had a lively music scene. Th Skeleton Key Band performed a lot of Grateful Dead which was something he had never really played before. It was a jamming environment and there was a lot of freedom. Making some good friends in Big Bear, he ended up collaborating with some other songwriters there and released his first album, "Time for Things to Change" in 2015. He followed with the release of a second album in 2016 called "Paint Brush Monkey". It contained selections from his pre 2015 recordings along with some new material.

    Rusty released a third album in 2017 that was a little more experimental than the previous releases entitled "Out of the Ordinary". He had been listening to some new releases from one of his longtime favorites, Todd Rundgren, as well as a lot of Jackie Greene and those had an impact on the sound of the record.

    "Make Some Noise" and "Take Me as I Am" are the first songs released from Rusty since his 2017 release of the album, Out of the Ordinary. There will be an album later this year which will continue the forward momentum of Rusty's continuing journey in the creation of music to move both the mind and body.

    Rusty is starting new projects with artists he has discovered and plans to debut his new You Tube channel and website, Record, Mix, Repeat.com. later this year. The site will feature live performances in studio and on stage of Rusty and various artists form the southern California area. Stay tuned!

    As Wootton states, "There's nothing fancy about them and they don't try to be something they're not. And that's what I like about them."

  • 'Featured Artist...07/June/2019...Erica Stone'

    Erica Stone, the epitome of a small-town girl in Southwestern Missouri who grows up to be a wife and a stay at home mom, with dreams of someday making music. That someday would involve years of twists and turns which nearly swallowed Erica Stone whole.

    Music City also came calling around the same time for Erica and her husband. Early 2004, music showcases and meetings with industry executives seemed promising for Erica and her then musical duo partner, and just as the duo was about to get signed to a major label, the doors closed.

    The music dreams dimmed and took a side-seat; but not due to the politics and roller coasters of Music Row. Erica and her husband opened an orphanage and an adoption agency to rescue the hundreds of children being beaten, traded, trafficked, separated, and displaced from their families. In the midst of the firestorm, they lost their precious daughter, Adama, due to negligence and corruption within the Sierra Leone borders. And without music and writing as her therapy, Erica felt like she was losing the core of who she was. But sometimes, it takes losing yourself to find yourself.

    Nearly a decade after she gave up her undeveloped dream for a destined reality, Erica is now sharing her story with the world, as an artist, author, and advocate.

    "I'm in a different position than I was the first time," Erica says. "I don't think I knew who I was. But today, I feel confident in my story and the mess of what I am and who I am. There's no façade--no putting on the best show in somebody's office," referring to a time when producers advised her not to talk about Africa in front of execs, for fear of losing her career. And when it comes to the future, Erica is learning to trust the process and surrender the outcome.

    NASHVILLE, TN. - (May 22, 2019) – In a room full of music industry VIP's, media, friends and family, Erica Stone shared several cuts and the stories behind the music she recently released on her current music project, Antidote. The long awaited and highly anticipated album was released on digital platforms on April 29 and featured on the New Music Nashville playlist. Download and streaming links available here.

    "I'm not the girl that came to Nashville ten years ago. I've been on quite the journey and the music reflects just that. This record explores love, loss, what happens in the dark, and how important it is to let the light in," reflects Erica Stone. "My hope is that each listener takes a piece of this album and keeps it tucked away... always knowing... regardless of the struggle... they are never alone." "Music should move you in some way; to action, to compassion, to change, it should touch your heart and move your soul. Erica brought all those things to the table when we started writing for the record, so the producing part came pretty easy," stated Producer, Brian White. "Brian Bunn & myself really just captured an artist just being herself. What an amazing record, what a stunning artist, what a beautiful story. I feel privileged to be a part of her journey."

    The twists and turns of life nearly swallowed her, but she rises to the surface with incredible new music, new lyrics to tug at your heart and melodies that offer you courage to stand or a safe place to find solace.

    Antidote, features two current singles by Stone, "Lies" and "Glass House." The video for "Glass House" spotlights real stories from individuals who messaged her, willing to share their setbacks and insecurities in front of a camera. The collaborators on this project are those in her tight circle that worked with her nine years ago and stuck with her, when others strayed.

  • 'Featured Artist...24/May/2019...Modern Mimes'

    Modern Mimes is an American music artist duo from Fort Lauderdale, FL. The duo consists of Adi Elcida Hernandez on vocals/guitar/sampling and Ernesto Paez on the double neck guitar bass. Their music can be best described as "Future Goth" a term they coined in order to explain the fusion of alternative heavy guitar riffs, powerfully haunting vocals, subconscious provoking lyrics, electronic drums, and catchy pop melodies.

    After almost 3 years of quietly creating and crafting their sound, Modern Mimes released their debut album "Wake Up" in early 2017. Their single "Love Hate," premiered on Blank TV and their video, directed by Carla Forte, was selected at various film festivals. They followed up their debut album with a cover of Type O Negative's "I don't Wanna Be Me." The Goth Metal Legends not only approved of the cover but quickly promoted the single and video before it's release. " I Don't Wanna Be Me" has resulted in a successful 30k+ views on Youtube and was featured on Loudwire.com amongst other media outlets.

    The duo has performed 2 years in a row at Riptide Music Festival, the biggest two day Alternative and Classic Hits music festival in Fort Lauderdale. They also toured the Southeastern United States, SXSW, and have a session on Balcony TV.

    Modern Mimes is a perfectly chaotic reflection of the inner workings of Adi & Ernesto who create music in hopes of inspiring listeners to journey through their subconscious and look within. Their sophomore album "The Gray" will be available in the Fall of 2018 and was produced by Rick Lander (Flaw & Dead Horse Trauma) and Anthony Santonocito ( John Hampson(Nine Days) & Brianna Taylor).

    Wang Chung, one of the defining bands of the 80s who conquered the UK, US and global charts, return with their original key protagonists, Jack Hues and Nick Feldman. Having become a staple of movie, TV, game soundtracks and commercials over the years, their name has almost uniquely passed into popular culture. The line "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight" from their mega-hit Everybody Have Fun Tonight has developed a life of its own, prompting the band to appeal to their fans around the world to have it officially recognised in dictionaries as a verb.

    Their upcoming new album, Orchesography, is an orchestra-boosted version of their best-known tracks, featuring the first single, Dance Hall Days, as well as Everybody Have Fun Tonight and Let's Go. As well as satiating the appetite for their legion of fans from back in the day, they are also introducing themselves to a brand-new audience who will have heard them featured across popular culture, from their breakout soundtrack to legendary The Exorcist/French Connection director, William Friedkin's 'To Live & Die in LA', to 'The Breakfast Club', 'Sex and the City', 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'; 'Breaking Bad', 'South Park' to Rick Grimes' first and final scenes in 'Walking Dead'.

    A band which have always looked forwards and well as back, Wang Chung have re-recorded some of their iconic tracks, combining their electro-pop, new wave sounds with the full backing of the City of Prague Orchestra. Their combined efforts bring new life to some of their classic tracks, including Dance Hall Days; Everybody Have Fun Tonight; Let's Go and Space Junk. For over 35 years, Wang Chung have enjoyed success around the world, with America, Canada, Australia and the UK in particular taking them to their hearts, with six top 40 hits, including a number one hit. Featuring tracks taken from across their six albums, Orchesography is an exciting opportunity to acquaint yourselves in a new way with a band who have broken through into popular culture like few before.

    After a twenty-year break, Wang Chung reformed in 2010 and have successfully toured the world ever since, as well as delivering the critically-acclaimed album of new material, Tazer Up in 2012. Dance Hall Days is prime Wang Chung, a track which has found itself as not only a huge international hit but also cementing itself across TV, film and video games up to the present day. Featuring in films such as Bachelor Party, The Fighter, Deadpool and Bumblebee; TV shows including Breaking Bad, Mr Robot, Saturday Night Live and Glee, not to mention to console phenomenon, Grand Theft Auto, Dance Hall Days sounds as fresh today with its new make-over as it ever has.

  • 'A Stephen's Indie Picks Presentation'--'Featured Artist...10/May/2019...Ashley Getz'

    Ashley Getz is an American musician, singer and songwriter. Growing up traveling from a young age, Getz has been able to explore multiple genres of music. Getz writes songs blending alternative, psychedelic and baroque styles of orchestration music that has created a significant buzz around her.

    Starting out with the release of her fist album 'Conceptions' in 2015 that began more as a pop feel, Getz is now embarking on the transition of her overall sound. With her second big release of her 2018 EP 'No Vacancy', she incorporated a psychedelic style of guitar and combined it with her love for classical music.

    Leading a free spirit lifestyle, Getz's music follows right behind with a wide range of sounds and textures. Now signed with TCB Records, she is working on her next big album release.

    My sound is alternative indie, I have a very unique and different vibe to my sound, part of my music is raw and down to earth leaning more to the natural indie sound but on the more upbeat and cool mixture side it has a cool feel of an EDM alternative vibe. I love the sound i create and it come from many aspects of my life, for example, my feeling and experiences, life in general, i like to write more metaphorically so anyone can relate to my music and put their own story to it.

    I also sometimes like to put myself in a character to see almost what life would be like in this aspect and i write about it. I have gotten great complements and reviews on my music like, "...one of Oklahoma's finest female voices...' and "...this girl has a hit on her hands..."!

    I do love my fans very much they are my base and lift me high, without them i wouldn't do what i do best. My motto in life is to always live extraordinarily so let's life extraordinarily together! Thank you and enjoy!

  • 'Featured Artist...03/May/2019...Fiona Ross'

    Fast becoming known as creating a new contemporary Jazz sound using fast paced Latin Jazz, a hint of vintage jazz club and at times a soul crossover feel with "distinctive vocal prowess who has the ability to knock an audience sideways", London Jazz Artist Fiona Ross – "The Jazz artist that gave Ed Sheeran his 'first push' - Daily Express" – has received rave reviews for both her recent album "Black, White and a Little Bit of Grey" and recent performances including the London Jazz Platform event, Nell's Jazz and Blues, The Pheasantry and Toulouse Lautrec. As Head of the British Academy of New Music, Fiona was responsible for the training of the likes of Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora and Jess Glynne, to name just a few, but now, it is her turn.

    There has rarely been a day since then for Fiona that has not centered around music. Enrolled in dance, drama and singing lessons at the age of two, piano at age six. At what moment did Fiona make a conscious choice to pursue a career in music? There wasn't a moment. There was never a time when there was any other choice. By the age of eight years old Fiona was starring in London's West End. Talent like Fiona's doesn't go unnoticed; soon she was signed to an agency and was featured in a string of television commercials and print advertisements and was recording radio jingles for everything from ketchup to Fairy dishwashing soap.

    At the age of fourteen she lied about her age and talked her way into gigging on weekends in jazz clubs throughout London, from the classy nightspots of the elite to some rather seedy pubs that were no place for an ordinary teenager. There were never any contracts to sign, it was always cash in hand at the end of the night. No one even suspected that a voice that startling in its maturity and passion could belong to a singer barely into her teens. "I will never forget going home to my parents," Fiona says;

    " Telling them that I had a job singing and playing Jazz as a solo artist in a club in London, I was so thrilled, but they were furious - well, I was only 14 at the time. "

    Fiona attended the prestigious Arts Educational School (the English equivalent of New York's High School for Performing Arts) where Julie Andrews, Catherine Zeta Jones and Will Young, to name just a few, also trained. Fiona's career has taken her all over the musical map. She has worked as a musical director, session musician, composer, choreographer, director, dancer, actor, model - She even sang back-up for a rock and roll band called Rocking Willie and the Y-Fronts when she was 15.

    Alongside this, educating young people has been Fiona's passion and she was Head of British Academy of New Music, London, for nearly nine years, where she was responsible for the training of Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora and Jess Glynne, to name a few. But now, it is Fiona's turn.

    " It is my pleasure and privilege to join the Insomniac Club Team as their patron. I am hugely passionate about raising awareness of mental health and more importantly creative strategies and support mechanisms to truly help and make a difference. As an educator and someone who has worked in the creative industry all my life, I have seen many people struggle with their mental health and just not knowing what to do and who to turn to. The Insomniac Club are starting to make a difference through creating and promoting a variety of ways to support and also stimulate our thinking about how we can truly help. Raising awareness is one step, actions are the next one and I am very excited to be part of this. "

  • 'Featured Artist...26/April/2019...Jah9'

    "Inspired by the fearless truth-telling of Nina Simone, and projecting the ethereal aura of early Erykah Badu," according to billboard.com; Jah9 has become a femiNINE icon of a movement based on universal consciousness. Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry and dub of Jamaican roots reggae. Her philosophy– profoundly spiritual, and her style – "Jazz on Dub".

    Born Janine Cunningham, Jah9 spent her first 9 years in Falmouth, Trelawny, on the rural western edge of Jamaica before moving into the city of Kingston, where she ventured inward and found an outlet for her feelings in the words that she wrote… Jah9 became a staple on Jamaica's underground poetry scene by 2009. The empty spaces of instrumental dub allowed a young Jah9 to find her voice, and her demos caught the attention of the legendary singer Beres Hammond as well as popular producer Don Corleon; meanwhile the passion in her live performance and her love for live music caught the attention of her peers and assisted in jump starting what is known to the world as the 'reggae revival'

    Jah9 has gone on to successfully release two albums; 'New Name' (2013) & '9' (2016). Her debut album, 'New Name' produced by pioneer selector Rory 'Stone Love', was voted album of the year by AchisReggae.com and brought forth the playful hit, 'Avocado'. In that same year Jah9 released the single "Steamers A Bubble" which has become an anthem for herb users worldwide. '9' album represents Jah9's shifts in energies to unveil a deeper more personal development of her 'Jazz on Dub' sound. The album was voted #2 Reggae Album of the Year by billboard.com.

    Described as "black magic," Jah9 and her dub inspired band, The Dub Treatment, is a staple on European and American reggae and world music festivals having performed at Boomtown (UK), Roskilde Fest (DE), Paleo Fest (CH), Rototom (ES), Caliroots (US) among many others. A certified yoga instructor trained in Kemetic, Ashtanga and Iyengar methods, Jah9 has been known to compel her audiences during her live set to pause, breathe deeply and feel empowered. Intimately engaging with her fan base, Jah9 also curates an organic music-based yoga experience she calls 'Yoga on Dub'. Jah9 is rooted in her African heritage and driven to serve. In 2015, while on tour in Italy and Malta she was intent on engaging with African refugees, sharing with them insight on the new environment they would face, natural wellness as well as yoga/breathing as healing therapy.

    Jah9 is currently working in studio with legendary producer Clive Hunt on her follow-up to 2016's '9' album. So far two singles have been released; "Love Has Found I" and " Feel Good". They will be both be featured on an exclusive vinyl EP dubbed "Feelings" to be released in the summer of 2018.

  • 'Featured Artist...19/April/2019...Scott Shipley'

    Scott Shipley is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and a sixth generation 'card-totin Hillbilly' from the Missouri Ozarks.

    Born into a family with a musical background, Scott began performing at the age of five. After announcing to his parents at the age of three that he was "going to play music for a living" when he grew up, they went into the studio and hit the road. His first bunk on the family tour bus was a bus wheel. He literally grew up on the road.

    In his nearly four decades in the business, Scott's travels have taken him across 48 states, five continents, and 27 countries.

    Scott has been blessed to share the stage with many of his musical heroes such as Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, Porter Wagoner, Kid Rock, and many others in every genre of music. Known for his 'without a net' style, his performances range from edge of your seat lightning fast Bluegrass, to classic Rock & Roll, to deep swamp blues, to his own unique brand of Hillbilly music. He's as likely to cover an Edgar Allan Poe poem as he is to do a Johnny Cash medley.

    When performing solo, he incorporates a bevy of instruments from guitars of every flavor, to dulcimer, mandolin, banjo, pedal steel guitar, harmonica, drums which he plays with his feet while playing guitar with his hands, to his most recent inclusion.......the theremin. All of these things combined make for a musical experience to remember!

    Like the Key Imperial overalls he wears, Scott Shipley is an American Original. From his haunting dramatic lyrics and voice, to his look that is a mix of mutton chop sideburn wearing farm boy and tattooed modern goth-infused darkness, everything about him is all Scott Shipley. A quick wit and a wicked grin helps to disarm even the staunchest critic, and leaves those around him with an appetite for his tales of real life told by a man who has lived it.

    Scott's move to the center stage mic comes as no surprise to those who have long respected his unique style and integrity. He is a walking juxtaposition: a throwback from days gone by with a vision for the future.

    Scott Shipley has spent his entire life gathering stories of sorrow, guilt, happiness, pain, and virtue and taken them all to make original music out of all these life experiences, told in a fashion that will make you thirst for each lyric with anticipation of the melodic movement of a life lived.

    Awards

    Voted #1 mandolin player in the US under the age of 16 by The Society For The Preservation Of Bluegrass Music In America (SPBGMA) in 1983, having been runner up in 1982.

  • 'Featured Artist...14/June/2019...The April Fools'

    The April Fools return for a celebration of "Third", their highly-anticipated new release, engineered and produced by Mike Owens at Blackberry Way Studios, and mastered by Andy Walters at Abbey Road Studios, London, UK.

    Members of this all-star lineup have rich histories that include work with Lowell George of Little Feat, Link Wray, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Chuck Berry, Roy Buchanan, The Hard Left, The Flamin' Oh's, Tetes Noires, and Robert Palmer, and have appearances on Austin City Limits and The Tonight Show on their credits.

    The appropriately titled "Third" finds the Fools in top form as personnel changes propel the band to a blues influenced Classic Rock feel while still retaining the Roots Rock and Americana sounds the band is known for.

    Their latest video is the first episode of a new series Blackberry Way "In Studio" The Making Of Third. The video currently has over 2000 views on Facebook.

    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.

    Fast-forward to December 2017. After releasing their second album Colorwheel, guitarist Clay Williams chose to exit the band. The three remaining members carried on with the addition of Minneapolis veteran Terri Owens (Tete Noires, The Flamin' Oh's, and others) and Dallas transplant Brad McLemore (Sara Hickman).

    Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the new April Fools!
