Joseph Lamm

Joseph Lamm began writing at the age of 17, when his schoolmates encouraged him to become involved in the writing of a theatrical show being produced during his senior year. As his contribution grew, Lamm realized he had found an avenue for his creative expression. He took this idea a step further once arriving at University (to study philosophy) and co-founded a troupe of players that would eventually go on to stage several well-received shows.

Lamm started contributing pieces to local and eventually nationally syndicated radio and found work as a commercial television actor, but his wildly eclectic musical and literary influences led him into the themes now pervasive throughout his recordings and writings. The mystical religious imagery of William Blake and the beat generation sensibilities of Michael McClure find themselves merged with the emotion of impressionist painter Claude Monet, while the universal appeal of a Lennon/McCartney lyric dances with the surrealism of Yes composer Jon Anderson.

His first two albums, Watching the Coming Storm and Standing in the Tower, were both critically well-received, with songs like "Still Waiting", "Awaken In My Heart" and "See No Evil" reaching the Top Ten on radio playlists across the US, Australia and New Zealand. The music video for "Awaken In My Heart" spent 6 months on the CCM charts, eventually peaking at No. 3.

Lamm completed the book Bull Headed Saviour in December 2008. Bull Headed Saviour reached No.1 on its publisher's list for poetry titles and remained near the top for 48 consecutive weeks. His third studio album, the award-winning Hot As Sun, Vol.1, was released in August 2009.

A remastered and expanded version of Watching the Coming Storm (Anniversary Edition) was released in July 2015 and, spurred on by tens of thousands of streams worldwide of the song "Still Waiting", reached No. 1 on the Amazon Avant Garde album chart in early September of that year.

Working as the trio Joseph Lamm + Music Hypnotica, the electronica/trance/rock influenced 2016 Andean's Ascent was hailed as "Remarkable" by PROGRESSION MAGAZINE. It is a 'songtrack' inspired by the themes and numerous poems found throughout the companion book, which is scheduled for publication in early 2019.

Lamm's new 2017 artpop single "Good Doctor Tom" (featuring Lani Williams) was released 22 September.
