Sam Lamont’s self-titled folk blues CD is a taste of sheer brilliance sure to inspire spontaneous fits of joy.  Pure, clean accoustics, earthy down-home vocals, and a musician who can do it all.  Lamont’s style is an easy, free-flowing sound with fantastic harmonies which gives the listener a break from the fast-paced soundtrack to life most uf us are accustomed to.  Lamont writes some clever lyrics as well, reflecting the things we all can relate to – broken hearts, worrying about wasting life’s opportunities, enjoying the perfect day with the perfect girl.  Hist oft-times Dylanesque stylings will have you lost in singing along.  Track #10, Nebo, gets me belting it out every time, now that I’ve heard the CD numerous times.  Many of these songs already feel like old friends.

Probably the most impressive aspect of Lamont’s feel-good music occurs when you realize he’s every guitar, bass, vocal, harmonica within the Cd.  he composed every song – a one-man folk and blues band, the production of such a work may just make you feel like quite the underachiever.  But no need to fret over your possible lack of self-motivation – just pop the Sam Lamont CD back in the player, grab a spot of sunshine on your porch, and press the play button again.  When you’ve got this one playing, everything’s gonna be alright.

When I first gave The Sam Lamont Band a listen, I knew it was my kind of band.  What I didn’t immediately pick up on was the why – the “Steve Miller” why of my attration.  I’m a longtime Miller fan – been to a few concerts, have the t-shirts – so I was pretty happy to have discovered The Sam Lamont Band has the same groovy, laid-back easiness as that ’70s icon with the subdued persona and dark sunglasses.  Other bands you could add to the comparison list:  Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, perhaps a dash of Eric Clapton.  All good reasons to give this band a serious listen.

Good Intentions is Sam Lamont’s first CD with a full band.  It’s a warm mix of folk and blues, and Sam’s subdued voice lends itself well to the acoustic guitars, drums, and an occasional organ. Original music written by the 2008 West Virginia Blues contest winner Sam Lamont offers a great lineup of tunes sure to make a fan of you, even before the end of the first song.

Swinging grooves, laid-back tempo, easy flowing voices; a great mix for a Saturday afternoon with nothing to do but sitting back with a few friends, remembering.  The Sam Lamont Band hails from Morgantown, West Virginia and they perform all over the mid-Atlantic region.

The Sam Lamont Band has kindly provided a copy of their Good Intentions CD for us to give away to a random winner here at carp(e) libris reviews, and I wanted to make sure to offer it during the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival Week because I believe this CD will appeal to a wide variety of listeners.

Look for an upcoming review and giveaway of Sam Lamont’s self-titled solo CD.
