    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

  • 'Featured Artist...14/February/2020...Katie Knipp'

    My name is Katie Knipp and I have been an indie artist for about 20 years. Out of all my previous projects, this one means the most and has just floored me on so many levels. It wasn't too long ago that I wasn't sure I would be able to perform and release more music, at least the way I wanted to. I recently had two babies in a row , they're now 2 and 3, and it was a pretty hard time in the beginning. During my second pregnancy I got carpal tunnel from the swelling and I wasn't sure if it would go away. It was pretty scary because I play guitar and piano as well as teach piano for a living. I was also silenced for about a year and a half due to the natural demands of my toddler that didn't want attention taken away from him whenever I tried to practice. Most days I could hardly sing or play a note. The best I could do was type lyrics into my phone at 3 in the morning while up with the baby and read articles on how to get the most out of your one minute of practice time. Since music is who I am, this was a very dark and depressing time for me and it was just last year.

    Fast forward to this year. In January I finally stopped breast feeding which allowed more flexibility in getting the chance to perform again. My parents moved closer and were therefore able to help babysit while I practiced. When I got back onstage as a solo act everything changed. It changed because my attitude was different. My love for music had been tested and I couldn't be more grateful now for ANY time I get to play. I started writing songs from a more natural state of just pure love and they come easily to me now. I'm no longer trying to prove myself because there's only one me out there. Nobody sounds like me. With the luck and help of Scott at SBL (who also provided harmony vocals on a track), I was able to do a mini tour opening for Robert Cray, as well as opened for The James Hunter Six, and also my idol, Jon Cleary. Ben Nieves, owner of The Recording Place and Piano Store, and his partner in crime, Chris Horton, came to one of my local shows in Sacramento. It was there we quickly decided to team up and make the best record we could. These songs were brought to life by the band I have always wanted to play with. Neil Campisano on drums, Zack Proteau, on bass and tuba (he owns Octupus Audio and plays with Cover Me Badd), Brett Vaughnrechtfertig on guitar, he leads a killer band called The Mindful, and some extras on a tune with Chet Chwalik on trumpet and Al Bent on trombone. When I first rehearsed with the rhythm section, it was such a weight off of my shoulders. Finally, I found some guys that got it. They brought the songs to life. We were all listening to each other instead of playing over each other. Now I am getting these mixes from Chris that bring out the songs even more than I thought possible. So, we make a great team. After my ears, Ben adds his production touches as well and we're a trifecta of success! This record goes from psycho to mardi gras and all the feels in between.

    So, I have a goal. I want to be the first woman in my position to still get on the Billboard charts, get onto commercial radio, not just college and internet radio, sell a million units, get songs placed on TV shows and movies, without being gone 200 days a year on tour. I still want to be able to raise my boys, perform whenever I can, because I LOVE performing, but also be present for my family. I believe all of this can be accomplished if the product is good enough, and it is. We're so oversaturated with highlight reals of people on social media, fake music, fake art, and this is something real and refreshing to grasp onto. Real musicians playing real instruments on songs written by a woman as real as it gets. Mother. Wife. Piano teacher. Soon to be chart topper inspiring millions of other people around the globe. You can join me in support of this goal by making sure to purchase this record either during the month of October Presale, or the first week it is released on November 7th. When I can sell a bunch of units in this short amount of time, bells and whistles go off to the proper companies that can assist in ways that I can't. For 20 years, I've been wearing all the hats. Now I'm asking for some help.

  • 'Featured Artist...21/February/2020..."Ed Romanoff"'

    Ed Romanoff is a chronicler of American experience whose voice recalls the gritty baritone of Leonard Cohen and the wit of Guy Clark, the New York singer-songwriter pens wise, big-hearted, occasionally whimsical, usually melancholic tunes about lonely souls and romantic dreamers.

    Ed Romanoff's second album The Orphan King (Feb 23) was produced by Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes) and includes contributions from Rachael Yamagata, Kenneth Pattengale of the Milk Carton Kids, guitarist Cindy Cashdollar and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, along with Larry's wife and duo partner, Teresa Williams.

  • 'Featured Artist...07/February/2020...fiveoclockcharlie'

    fiveoclockcharlie is the very embodiment of Georgia Long.

    I've been performing since I was seven, experimenting with multiple genres. Being from Lubbock, Texas, country music was "the thing." That progressed into rock, then jazz/R&B, and has evolved into electro-pop. Starting, I was in a band with my sisters — Lindsay and Stephanie. We would sing to karaoke tracks, wherever anyone would have us; sometimes that included being on a trailer singing to only a man and his dog.

    After a few years, The Long Girlz formed a rock band called The Shock, mostly playing in seedy bars around the Lubbock area. That's when I started writing my music. The first song I wrote is called "There" and it's actually on my EP — The Angel.

    After venturing off on my own, to Charleston, New York, LA, back to Lubbock, then finally back to LA, I've settled out here and am creating as fiveoclockcharlie.

    It's not been the smoothest of roads. While I was living in New York, my sister Lindsay and brother-in-law, Will Boreing, were in LA. They convinced me to move out here — under the pretense that it would be temporary. It didn't take long for me to realize that this is where I was meant to be.

    About a month in, Will allowed me to record my first album with him and Steven Solomon. Just as I was set to release it, my mom, unfortunately, passed away, which took Lindsay, Will, and myself back to Texas to be with the family. While in Lubbock, I co-wrote and illustrated a children's book in my mom's honor, and wrote my next album.

    Now that I'm finally back in LA, I feel more focused and serious about my art. I've released my first album, and am planning on releasing its follow-up in 2020, so things are (currently) looking up!

    Previously of the bands The Long Girlz, The Shock, and The Alchemists, Georgia is finally stepping out onto the music scene as a solo artist and putting out the music previously kept only for herself. By constantly performing professionally and moving back and forth between TX, LA, and NY; Georgia has assumed a balance between hustle and art usually only known by the taste makers at the very top.

    She thrives in the public eye and has a flare for all things fantastic; proven by the success she's achieved with her many creative endeavors, including comic illustration and mixology. If art represents the artists emotion, mood, and ideology, it's clear what is on Georgia's mind... the party. With her electro pop brainchild fiveoclockcharlie, she has finally struck pay dirt with producers and co writers Steven Solomon and William Boreing. As you read this, the first string of singles under fiveoclockcharlie are being released to very good reviews from labels, PR firms, and YouTube reviewers.

    Georgia is a party so fiveoclockcharlie is a party.
    Drive to it, dance to it, or drink to it- but listen, because it's incoming, and its five o'clock is here.

  • 'Featured Artist...31/January/2020...Harper'

    An amalgamation of blues, soul and world music, multi award winning Australian singer/ songwriter " creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. By combining traditional and modern influences, borrowing from Western and World music, Harper has created a highly original take on the roots genre which many have labeled "World Blues". Harper has received an amazing 14 x Music Awards in four different countries. His innovative use of electronic enhancement and feedback, breaks the traditional boundaries of the harmonica, giving his music its distinctive harmonics and effects. The powerful guitar sounds and the unique drone of the didgeridoo create raw yet eerie sonic textures, some how sounding primal and contemporary at the same time. Harper is backed by his very talented Detroit based band "Midwest Kind"

    Born in the United Kingdom, Harper's musical journey began early, performing in brass bands playing the trumpet and euphonium. At the age of ten, his family moved half way round the world to Perth, Western Australia, and his Grandfather introduced Harper to the harp. In Perth, one of the most isolated cities in the world, there was a thriving blues and folk scene. The blues had a rawness, an honesty and a passion of the soul which spoke to Harper deeply.

    Fascinated with the spirituality and culture of the American Natives, he found the same qualities present in the Australian Aborigines of his homeland. On adding the native didgeridoo to his music, Harper says "It is a sound I grew up with, so it seemed natural to add it to my songwriting particularly when the lyrics related to the plight of the Aborigines in Australia. When I added the didgeridoo to the more traditional blues instruments, it worked. The deep woody qualities and its haunting drone seemed to enhance the emotional quality of my stories. The didgeridoo is a spiritual and healing instrument, and it seemed blues music accepted it with open arms. I also owe my life to a tribe of nomadic Australian Natives who saved my father and I from starvation when we were trapped at The Fitzroy Crossing (Western Australia), in between two fast flowing river torrents. They gave us enough food and water to last us until the flood had subsided. I feel my music is my way of giving back to these wonderful people".

    Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Peter D. Harper -- known in the music world, as "Harper" brings forth his latest release "RISE UP' featuring 10 original tunes released on February 11th 2020 . "RISE UP" profoundly expresses Harper's creative use of the harmonica and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo with underlying meaningful lyrics, which reflect the divisive times, we currently live in.

    Harper is known for his powerful soulful voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to the roots genre. This new release is an expansive musical and lyrical journey, stirred up with masterful harp and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo. "RISE UP" follows the highly acclaimed "Show Your Love" (2016), which reached # 3 on the Billboard Blues Charts and stayed in the top ten for 6 months.

  • 'Featured Artist...20/March/2020...Clare Free'

    Sublime blues guitar songstress, CLARE FREE, is back after seven years with a brand new album, WHERE ARE YOU NOW? was released on on Fri 06 March 2020 and available to pre-order CD in gatefold digipak and across all streaming and download platforms.

    Having taken a break from recording to raise her youngest child, Where Are You Now? is her first release since her acclaimed Dust And Bones album in 2012.

    And the production team behind the new release reads like a who's who of the modern music industry, including Richard Flack, Bob Kidby & Frank Arkwright.

    Clare explains, "I went for lunch at the Old Jet Arts hub which is run by Jesse Quin of Keane. While I was there, I met the massively acclaimed music producer Richard Flack. Richard is Robbie Williams' producer, and he also works with other huge artists including Tina Turner, Olly Murs, Rudamental, the Spice Girls, Pulp, Stereophonics, INXS the list goes on and on.

    We got chatting and I mentioned to Richard that I wanted to record a new album. When I spoke to him a couple of weeks later, he said he would be interested in producing and mixing it as long as we worked well together, and he invited me into the studio to do a trial song to see how we got on.

    We went to the most amazing studio called The Barn, which is run by Bob Kidby who co-produced and engineered the album. The studio is over two floors and is jam packed with an astonishing array of mint condition vintage gear. Every guitar, amp, effect pedal, and instrument you could dream of is there, and I was allowed to use any of them that I chose. I used vintage Telecasters, Stratocasters and Les Pauls mostly, and some much more 'off the wall' guitars too. I was in heaven!

    The test track went well, and we all enjoyed working together, so Richard said, if I could fit in the recording in the days he had between flying back and forth to LA etc we could do it. I jumped at the chance and what an opportunity it was! Working on the album with Richard was fantastic, and Bob's engineering skills are second to none. They got the absolute best out of me. I was lucky enough to have Jamie Kruppa join me on bass, I've worked with Jamie before and he's a great bass player. On drums we had Dave Jackson, who is a phenomenal session player. Once it was all mixed, I asked Cenzo Townshend (Engineer Of The Year - twice) if he would master the album, he told me he doesn't do mastering, but that I should contact his mate Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road as he would do a good job of it for me. So, naturally, I contacted Frank, who masters for the likes of Coldplay, U2, Oasis, Snowpatrol, Bryan Ferry, Biffy Clyro and loads more. He did the mastering for me and wow, the album sounds absolutely amazing. I am so, so proud of it.

    I have had the opportunity of a lifetime, and I feel so lucky to have had that chance."
