An acoustic guitar lovers CD, flatpicked acoustic guitar music with passionate vocals, not just bluegrass, just great music.
Eric Lambert has been writing, playing guitars, recording and performing for over thirty years. He firmly adheres to the old school philosophy of those ground breaking masters who inspired him , that music should know no bounds. His restless spirit has driven him into a variety of projects that have enabled him to tour extensively throughout America and Canada over the years as well as be a guest on several albums by an array of artists.
Lambert is a likeable chap with a cherub face and a friendly smile that is framed in a graying beard, making him almost wizardly looking, in a warm and cuddly Jerry Garcia kind of way.
While that former Grateful Dead icon is a musical hero of Lambert, he is but one of many from all genres of music whose influence seeped into the nooks and crannies of Lambert's artistic fiber. Gram Parsons,The Allman Brothers, Lowell George, Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs,Clarence White,Tony Rice and Doc Watson likewise have inspired his own creative output over the years.
Playing music since the age of thirteen, Lambert honed his skills in a variety of Chicago school bands while growing up, and today shares those skills as private musical instructor himself.
Lambert successfully filters bits and pieces of the disparate artists who inspired him into a sonic brew of eclectic and amazing music. Music lovers with broadband tastes will find much to enjoy in Lambert's enthusiastic approach, fueled by his genuine love and deep respect for all walks of traditional Americana music.
His no bounds mantra comes into play every time Lambert steps onstage or into a recording studio. Rock, folk, bluegrass, country, and blues all play equal parts in his musical output. Lambert excels at each style and bounces back and forth between them with an uncanny ease and smoothness.
