About

I'm Norman Lamont (no relation to the other guy with that name), a songwriter and singer in Edinburgh, Scotland. Here's my life's journey in music.

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.
