ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Damned if he didn't come up with another roots-pop gem. There's plenty to like here. Lamb's gift for melody and angelic voice combine for great rootsy-pop. An easy top ten.”~Absolute Powerpop

"Though his music shares a genre populated by last name folk-rock icons such as Dylan and Petty, Lamb's music vibrates with a level of originality and personal authenticity that rivals the heavyweights."~Vintage Guitar Magazine

"This is an album of solid roots rock that is easy to enjoy. A strong suite of songs with highs ,lows and in-betweens. Great band. What's not to like?"~Americana-UK

“Lamb’s cool, hear tfelt vocals are caressed in layers of killer guitars and propelled by a superb rhythm section that is seductive and hypnotic. His pure pop music is anything but contrived and samey. Instead of making canned pop for cash, Shane writes and records catchy pop music that is genuine, credible, and real.”~Babysue Magazine

"He's being compared to some of the giants of his genre, like Bob Dylan and Neil Young. But folk rock singer/songwriter Shane Lamb also brings his own indelible, introspective rawness to the table and willingly takes the listener down his surprisingly sunny road, yet pointing out his weaknesses and scars along the way with unashamed honesty. Lamb's performances are vulnerable, yet strong; his lyrics revealing but hinting at mystery. His stories tell just enough, then leaving us to fill in the blanks."~Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville

When I was in elementary school, my neighbor, Mark, was the oldest son of the Halverson’s and played drums in a rock n roll band. Even though he was out of high school, he let me hang out and listen to the band rehearse in the basement, or go upstairs and listen to records.  I passed whole weeks in the summer at the Halverson’s house next door listening to Mark’s records in earmuff headphones while the floor shook as his band  played rock ‘n’ roll in the basement… practicing for their gig that night which was located up the canyon at the Oaks. It started for me with The Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, The Band, The Allman Brothers, B.B. King, and Johnny Cash. I daydreamed about the world I heard in the headphones, and I wondered about the mystery of songs and making records. I believed there was truth in there.”

Shane has called Nashville his home now for 13 years. “It is kind of funny that I ended up in Nashville, I guess. There is a great history here. I love rock ‘n’ roll, blues, soul, R&B, and older country. But I’m not much for the newer country music, and I wasn’t really exposed to bluegrass until I came here. Although country gets the obvious attention, there is a lot of different music here and a lot of great players and songwriters that don’t fall into that stereotypical Nashville thing.” After playing around town as a guitarist for some local artists, his first “break” came when he got the call to go out on the road with Lee Roy Parnell. “It’s funny,” Lamb says, “I met Lee Roy once and got the call a few months later to go on the road for some shows. The call came on a Friday around 6:00 p.m. saying to be at Lee Roy’s around 8:30 p.m. that night. I threw a bag together, went to Lee Roy’s, met the band on the bus, and waited till 12:30 a.m. for Lee Roy to get aboard. Then, we were off to Mississippi! It was all very up in the air. In Mississippi, I didn’t have a room and slept for about three hours on a pull-out couch full of food and change in a meeting room near the lobby. That is about how the next two years went,” remembers Shane.

Since then, Shane has worked as a guitarist and co-writer with many artists and songwriters around town. “I have been very fortunate with my time in Nashville. I’ve made great friends, and I have managed to make a living and pay my bills with guitar in hand. I have toured North America, and I have played all kinds of gigs.” He has played guitar on recording sessions with some of Nashville's most respected and sought-after musicians, and he has done the same with folks that may never be heard or known. “I have played just about every type of music venue out there: bars, dives, clubs, VFW’s, coffeehouses, the Ryman, large arenas, theaters, fairs, rodeos, and living rooms.” A few years ago, Shane decided to focus mainly on writing his own music and making his own records with friend and two-time Grammy winning engineer, Casey Wood. In 2009, Shane released, 'Disengage'. This record has drawn international attention and airplay, garnering Shane strong reviews and some pretty heady comparisons.

'Disengage' was also in consideration for three Grammy nominations. “Getting a nomination would have been unbelievable. We got close.  We made it to the very last round before nominations. I would have loved to have seen Casey nominated. It was about as indie as it gets; just us with the songs and recording with friends.” Shane says.
The release of  'Disengage' was followed up just three months later with a burst of new songs and the  tracking sessions of what would become Shane’s second record, 'Better Here',  from 2011. "We tracked the record live, in two days. It went really fast and really well. There isn't a take that wasn't the first or second. The plan was to get the record done, and then hit the road with TWO records to play live. Well, you know what they say about best laid plans," Shane smiles. Nashville flooded about the time we were set to finish overdubs then mix. "The tour was booked, so I left  Nashville with 'Better Here' unfinished. And when I returned home to Nashville, I immediately realized my music room and part of the house had been damaged by a slow leak caused in the flooding," says Shane. "Everything stopped. All the momentum from the tour, completing the new record...everything. I spent the next five months working on the house," says Shane.

“I’m really excited and grateful to be making music, it is all I have ever wanted to do. I enjoy the whole process: the writing, recording, and playing live. It is an amazing thing to write a song and bring it to a session with some great players and friends and see what happens. I would be thrilled just to be in a room with these great musicians, watching them do their magic.   But to have them playing on songs I have written, it still gives me the ‘chill bumps’ as Emily Dickinson would say. There are a lot of awards, credits, and mojo that comes with the folks I have been able to work with on these records. I feel really fortunate.”
“I still daydream about the world in the headphones; I still write on scraps of paper, and I still believe there is truth in there— it’s still stacks of books and poetry.  Although the mystery of making records and writing songs is a little less mysterious now, I am still enthralled and excited by the whole process. And after all those hours of listening to him as a nine-year-old boy, I did get to stand a few feet from Johnny and June Cash. That alone was worth the ride.”
