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.
