His musical journey began early and was influenced by family and church. After high school, Lamont’s cousin Bobby Sanders, manager of Little Anthony, The Imperials and The Young Hearts, included him in their rehearsals. Lamont had the unique opportunity to sing, dance and practice choreography with these groups, inspiring him onward in music.
In college, Lamont was offered and accepted a gig singing second tenor and writing lyrics for ‘New Birth’. The group toured with such notables as the O’Jays, Blue Magic, The Dramatics, Four Tops, The Moments, Chi-lites and George Clinton -all sounds from the Motown era.
As Lamont’s talents increased, so did his desire to play a bigger role in the musical industry. Lamont ultimately started his own studio and launched the label World Movement Records. World Movement Records became the place where artists could be who they truly were. Artists thrived under Lamont’s direction, leading to Platinum Records for Ghetto Hippie and Bobby Caldwell and a Gold Album for Jeffrey Osborne, among others.
As the industry changed so did Lamont. He began moving into the digital age and following technical trends. World Movement Records supports artists as an entire entity from music distribution to merchandising and publishing, to TV and film roles, with the Internet playing heavily into P.R and distribution.
Lamont launched the “I AM INDIE” radio show 4 years ago where he interviews the superstars of indie music to discuss upcoming projects, play their music and talk the "business" of entertainment. His show airs on the Blog Talk Radio network every Wednesday.
Lamont will be bringing his talents to Urban Indie Radio Los Angeles in performing feature celebrity and artists interviews.
