WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
Amity and Eoin
Over the last month two of our founding members have played their last "as members" gigs with The Julie Lamb Outfit. Eoin Williams (Awesome guitarman) and Amity Alton-Lee (Wonder Saxes) have stepped away. We wish them well and enjoyed immensely having them in the #LambFam. We remind them here, that what goes on tour stays on tour... :)
Andrew and John
It is an absolute honour to welcome John O'Connor - guitarist of undeniable brilliance and Andrew Clouston, a saxophonist of the same calibre, to the band. Adding these fullas to the mix will allow us to play music from winged dragons while shooting gold from our instruments! Actually. You'll need to attend the next gig to see what truth I speak!
HOW HUMANS THINK
"How Humans Think" is the 5th offering from Lamb - this time with a the band The Julie Lamb Outfit. The album is an 8 track featuring 5 songs penned by Lamb, with trademark character, and 3 by keys player Shan Jordan, who offers amazing works. Keep an eye on the tour schedule to be announced soon as! Picture is a cover concept by the brilliant Debe Mansfield.
What people say about our music
Matt Jensen, Divideandconquermusic.com
After spending some time with Ordinary Days by Julie Lamb I was thinking to myself that this is music that deserves to be heard live. Why you ask? Well for one thing the music contains a lot of instrumentation. Apparently, the band had twelve members at one point. The other thing that stuck out to me was a lot of the music was funky, upbeat and fun. That being said there is also a 70’s rock vibe. Groups like Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead came to mind.
Ordinary Days is a slick, smooth collection of beautifully composed lyrics, Julie has a wonderfully melodic voice, which is enhanced by her backing vocalists and band. I found the whole album enjoyable, the lyrics and composition captivated me. This is honest and upbeat and Julie's pride and love of music shines through in every song.
