About

Norman Lamont is a timeless, classic singer-songwriter, as much at home in echoey electronics as in intimate acoustic settings. His songs are always melodic and memorable, but his subject matter ranges from the surreal and spiritual to quirky humour.

Over the last 15 years he has produced four albums of original songs: The Wolf Who Snared The Moon (2004) set out his stall, with dreamlike story-songs, humour and two fan favourites, the award-winning Ballad of Bob Dylan and the Bond-theme rush of the title track. Two subsequent EPs of 'relationship' songs were later repackaged as Romantic Fiction, approaching love stories with both tenderness and knock-down humour.  The most recent two albums Roadblock (2008) and All The Time In Heaven (2013) were darker, dealing sensitively with themes of loss and grieving.
He has also produced a live album, an album of instrumentals and a compilation, Anywhere But Here.
He is about to release In Another Life with his band The Heaven Sent, an upbeat, acoustic-based album with a more positive spin, including a revisited Ballad of Bob Dylan. 

Norman Lamont in his own words

Robert Burns (wikimedia commons)I started playing and writing in response to the singer-songwriter boom of the early 1970s, but my musical roots go further back than that, into classical music, film music, old-time music hall and, inevitably for a native of Ayr, Robert Burns.

Like so many others, writing songs and posing with a guitar were my chosen (and only) routes to social acceptance as a teenager.
