If Ray LaMontagne, Loudon Wainwright III, M. Ward, and Keb Mo were passing the guitar in a songwriter-in-the-round session on your back porch it would sound something like Sam Lamont’s eponymous album. It is a simple, honest mixture of folk blues, adult pop, and country rock with soulfully gruff vocals and sepia-toned harmonies. This multi-instrumentalist has shared the stage with many famed Americana and Mountain acts and is quickly making a name for himself along the way. - CD Baby


Sam was selected from over 100 entries as a finalist for the WV-OH-KY region.

"My intro to Sam Lamont was listening to him one evening at the Black Bear, covering a Springsteen tune and thinking he was lip syncing a CD. Yeah, he’s that good. The front man for Tanglewood took advantage of the band’s current hiatus to produce a great disk — think of some of Stills’ best solo efforts and you’ll get a feel for this disk...Four stars" - WV Graffiti Magazine


“Sam, from Morgantown, plays a lot of acoustic blues, but not entirely blues. Got there about 9:30pm, just in time to hear him get out his slide guitar and play thru a great 2nd set that included some Blind Blake, Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Mississippi Fred McDowell and others, along with many originals. Sam can play slide with the best of 'em. And his originals were nice also. Also appreciated his attitude and sense of humor. Hope to catch him again sometime soon and if you happen to be in the Mo-town area be certain to track him down. Ain't gonna be disappointed.” - Crawlinkingsnake, a contributor to the Blues, Jazz & Folk Music Society of the Mid-Ohio Valley (http

Bio

Sam Lamont is a musician, songwriter, and singer whose music expands outward from the roots and folk traditions. As the singer and rhythm guitarist for an acoustic string band he has shared the stage with the likes of Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, The Avett Brothers, and The Hackensaw Boys. In 2007 Sam was selected a regional finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song contest and in 2008 Sam won the West Virginia Blues Society’s blues contest in the solo/duo category and went on to represent WV at the 2009 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.

In early 2009, The Sam Lamont Band debut CD “Good Intentions” was released featuring electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, and organ. Twelve previously un-released original songs and one revisited from his solo album; a somewhat eclectic sound described as guitar-driven, groove-oriented roots rock.

Sam’s self-titled, self-recorded debut solo CD (2007) is a collection of eleven original songs on which he sings and plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica. The CD has won warm praise from the Editors at CD Baby who compared him to M. Ward, Keb Mo’, and Ray Lamontagne.

Sam performs regularly as a solo artist and with his band and tours the mid-Atlantic region from Tennessee to NYC and points in-between. He would love to hear from you and see you along the way.
