Bio

Paul Lamont is a Buffalo, New York based songwriter and filmmaker. His music is rooted in the tradition of American, storytelling folk – the kind that sprang from the smoke-filled Greenwich Village coffee houses of the 1960s. As a filmmaker, he thinks visually and he approaches songwriting in the same way, combining rich imagery with a sense of practical poetics; simple in language but complex in emotion.

Lamont draws his inspiration from artists such as Townes Van Zandt, Eric Andersen, Gordon Lightfoot and Guy Clark. His song, "Whiskey Before Breakfast" came to the attention of record producer, Werner Meyer of Meyer Records in Cologne, Germany and was included on Meyer Records Artist Compilation Volume 4, released on CD and vinyl in 2014.

A new album is in the works.
