BILLY LAMONT Brief BIO For New Year 2023

The Other Perspective Media/Management
& The Poet’s Eye:
BILLY LAMONT BRIEF BIO For January 2023

Billy Lamont is a NY based American poet, spoken word artist, recording artist, and experimental multi-media performance poet with a reformer spirit, and international reach. He has performed on national television a number of times, including the Joe Franklin Show, MTV and Much Music Television, and has toured and performed with rock festivals such as Lollapalooza 1994, 1995, 2003, and appeared on major and college radio stations, and given book signings at major and independent bookstores across the U.S.

As a young man Lamont was part of a two week missionary team sent from Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle to Ukraine, in 1992, where he additionally did public speaking which included him reciting some of his poetry. This experience of spending time with the beautiful people of Ukraine resonates in Lamont’s heart and prayers extra brightly now, in this dark time of Putin led murderous invasion of Ukraine.

Lamont has recited his poems of comfort for families of September 11th, 2001 disaster In Union Square, NYC a few days after the tragedy, and in 2013 for victims of Hurricane Sandy in his then hometown of Babylon, NY.

He has recited his poems of justice on behalf of Jubilee 2000, and a debt free start for nations of the global south at The Knitting Factory in NYC in 2000, when the largest amount of petitions ever was gathered (up to that point,) and days before the first national mobilization gathering in Washington DC. He would then serve on the board of directors for Jubilee USA for a number of years.

He also recited his poems of justice several times at Occupy Wall Street in NYC in 2011, and to kick off worldwide March Against Monsanto In Union Square, NYC In 2014. Lamont received a Guinness World Record in 2014 for his poetry recital part in the Longest Officially Released Recording by Mike Peters of The Alarm, to help foster peace between Muslims, Christians and Jews in The Holy Land, and to benefit Love Hope Foundation, and those fighting cancer.

Lamont has three books of poetry and nine album CD/digital download releases. His latest book Words Ripped From A Soul Still Bleeding: Poems For The Future Edition is a great success, and is available at Barnes And Noble and Amazon as a paperback, or as an eBook, and all his albums are distributed by The Orchard and can be streamed on Spotify and Apple Music.

Billy Lamont is an American Poet with an avant-garde approach to writing, music, performance art, politics and film. Lamont grew up on Long Island, and at the heart of his poetry is the passion to inspire hope, and to be a voice for everyday people. His unique vision for poetry into the 21st century, combined with a belief in the power of words for creation, reformation and healing brought his influence from grassroots to national success in the 1990s and then international recognition in the new millennium. His work encourages dignity, upholds life and serves as a catalyst for a world of readers and listeners, both in the mainstream and on society’s fringes. He inspires many to live in a more loving way, and to feel for different justice causes for the first time, to help with personal and social reform in this Global Age.

Lamont has recited his poems of comfort for families of September 11th 2001 disaster in Union Square, NYC, a few days after the tragedy, and in 2012 through 2013 for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in his then hometown of Babylon, NY, and the surrounding areas. He recited his poems of reform at Occupy Wall Street in NYC in 2011, and to kick off the worldwide March Against Monsanto in Union Square, NYC on behalf of food justice in 2014.

New York performance poet Billy Lamont has performed on national television a number of times including MTV, Joe Franklin Show, and Much Music Television, and appeared on major/college radio stations across the United States. Lamont has also performed at many rock festivals including touring with Lollapalooza ’94, ’95, 2003 and Cornerstone Festival 2004 and 2006. Due to the success of his first book of poems The Gallery Of Light, distributed by Ingram, Lamont began giving book signings at major book stores such as Barnes and Noble in shopping malls across the United States. The follow up, strobe light generation fueled Lamont’s passionate and thought provoking multimedia shows that combine his performance poetry with electronic music and synchronized film. His latest poetry with Electronic/Americana Pop music CD/digital download is titled Beyond Babylon.

Lamont’s third major volume of poetry Words Ripped From A Soul Still Bleeding: Poems For The Future Edition, distributed by Ingram, is a powerful successor to his earlier books and nine album CD/digital audio releases like billy lamont with the peculiar people, Eulogy: Flowers For The Living, and Beyond Babylon. Lamont’s entire CD/digital download catalog is distributed by The Orchard internationally.

In celebration of Christmas/Hanukkah Holidays and as a thank you for the success of Words Ripped From A Soul Still Bleeding: Poems For The Future Edition, Billy Lamont will also be a guest on the airwaves at WUSB 90.1 FM Radio at Stony Brook University, NY and streaming on the web at wusb.fm. On December 8th, the same day as the Barnes and Noble event, Lamont will appear on An Eclectic Mess show with Host Kevin Kovarik, at 7:30 – 8am.

“It is live radio, that will also be streaming on the worldwide web at wusb.fm, at its absolute best! A real pleasure to be on this awesome program with this incredible Host, and it is his birthday! So I am also looking
forward to wishing DJ Kevin Kovarik a joyful birthday that day! All kinds of people are responding to the hope and inclusive dignity within my new book of poetry. It is refreshing and an excellent alternative for people to have passionate, soulful and positive words burning from the pages of my new book, and within my music, in this fast paced and often robotic age of artificial intelligence,” Lamont said.

Lamont’s 1998 debut CD Into the 21st Century was a benefit for Teen Challenge, with performances by two of his greatest influences, the legendary Allen Ginsberg and the brilliant Songwriter/Recording Artist Mike Peters of The Alarm on the title track. In his later years, Ginsberg expressed love and support for Lamont’s poetry with permission to use an audio sample from his first recital of the legendary Beat Generation epic poem Howl.

In 2014 Lamont collaborated again with Mike Peters, as well as many other rock stars, and inclusive of everyday artists, on the recording The Scriptures to help foster peace between Muslims, Christians and Jews in The Holy Land. The Scriptures is a benefit for Love Hope Strength Foundation and those fighting cancer. Lamont’s contribution to The Scriptures earned him a Guinness World Record as part of ‘The World’s Longest Officially Released Song.’

Lamont’s career was also promoted by Larry Norman, widely known as the Father of Christian Rock. The music legend invited Lamont to open several of his shows from 1998- 2000 and to become an artist on Norman’s own Solid Rock Records. The result was an album of compositions written for release on Solid Rock, with preliminary sessions produced by Norman in 2000. However, Norman’s failing health made further sessions impossible. The album was never completed and the session tapes went missing from Norman’s archives. Lamont returned the favor of support by raising awareness and funding for Norman’s emergency healthcare with the CD/download billy lamont with the peculiar people.

During the creation of Lamont’s strobe light generation book of poetry he was also being encouraged by legendary Poet/Peace Activist, Jesuit Priest, the late Daniel Berrigan, as well as being kindly affirmed by the brilliant Peter Garrett, the front man of Midnight Oil, and the former Australian Federal Minister of Environmental Protection, Heritage, Arts and Education.

All of these experiences and influences are a huge part of Lamont’s vision for the future! In his recent poetry he encourages brothers and sisters globally, as well as locally to, “Imagine A Day, we need an intelligent heart, a loving mind, LOVE, intelligence of the heart will light your mind!”

“Community and spirituality, as opposed to alienation, is so important in these tumultuous times, that are also ripe with potential. I plan on using my voice to bring faith, love and peace to people, with all my strength, by God’s grace!,” Lamont concluded.

Lamont’s three major book releases and nine CDs/digital downloads are available through most major distributors such as barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com and
iTunes.com, and the albums can be streamed and listened to on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, and most popular sites.

The Other Perspective Media: Poet Billy Lamont “scattered (dizzy)” song collaboration with Le Pre Noir From Lamont’s Beyond Babylon album. Video Directed & Edited By Scott W. Perry, Cinematography By Steven Mark Glazzner. “This song was written about traveling with joy through some personal suffering as a single Father to my son Zion, as living in Babylon, NY, just prior to Hurricane Sandy. I had inspiration from the scripture ‘By the waters of Babylon I wept for Zion,’ from HOLY BIBLE on my heart and mind as writing this and the album Beyond Babylon. When Hurricane Sandy devastated my hometown of Babylon, NY it became more about traveling through that pain, much like a blues song or a psalm from HOLY BIBLE does, bringing strength to my hometown and community of people that suffered loss from Hurricane Sandy in NY and NJ. I asked Director Scott W. Perry to capture that visually and he came up with this videos concept of me journeying through one day of this devastation, visuallized amazingly by Perry and Glazzner in the days that followed Hurricane Sandy. This song video feels bigger than I, and I praise GOD for the comfort I feel within it, and above all the comfort it has brought to others.,” Billy Lamont said.
