_Justin Lamb grew up in Clarkston, Michigan after he was born in the banner year of 1983. Always having an emotional connection to music, Justin Lamb joined his school choir when he was twelve years old. Catching on to melodies quickly and developing an interest in love, he began writing songs immediately. He used this time as a curious adolescent to fine tune his vocal knowledge over the next few years. By the time he was sixteen, he had gotten a guitar and quickly began to teach himself basic chords and some of his favorite songs.
It wasn’t until after high school that Justin’s dreams of stardom really took flight and got him working on his first full length album, “Walking Away From You”. With best friend and music producer, Chad Nini, the album was released in 2002 to a number of new fans and future inspirations.
A short couple of years after the release of “Walking Away From You”, Justin moved out to California to once again collaborate talents with Chad Nini. After recording a number of demos, the two began to play live all over the greater Los Angeles / Hollywood area. Places including B.B. Kings and the Universal Bar and Grill. After exhausting all the songwriting one could take out of Los Angeles in their early twenties, Justin felt a hindering for home and moved back to Michigan.
Upon his return in 2006, old fans and new fans were exited to hear what had come from this 26 month stint on the west coast. Opening his return with a show at the Blue Note Cafe, Justin roped in his fans once again with songs about loves come and gone, anger, and a small amount of relative regret we can all listen to and understand. Justin then began fine tuning some of his California work, deciding what songs to keep and what wasn’t working. It wasn’t long before he recorded his next album, a small seven track acoustic album, “Living Room Sessions”. The name was as self-explanatory as it could be. All the tracks were recorded by himself or his friends in a living room somewhere. Whether it was on the west coast or in Michigan, there were friends, guitars, and conveniently placed furniture that made this album more successful than the previous. After countless shows, Justin calmed down a little and went back into writing mode.
His third album, Songs From Within was released in January of 2014. This is the first and only studio album with a full band. Taking an eclectic acoustic sound and adding the talent and dimensions of bassist Billy Perkins, drummer Rob Shannon and lead guitarist, Dustin Kring. The album was recorded and released in conjuncture with Kickstarter. The album got its funding from fans and friends alike and was able to be recorded in the famous Tempermill Studios, just outside Detroit, MI. Songs From Within opened a wide array of voices and is available through this website or any online venue you choose to get music from!
So as to not skimp on practicing and experiencing new music styles, Justin plays a set of covers and originals a couple times a month at local bars and lounges. Keep up to date by checking the music page on this site, or by contacting Justin directly through the contact form on this site!
