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.

PRESS RELEASE: RECORDING ARTIST BILLY LAMONT’S NEW ALBUM “EULOGY: FLOWERS FOR THE LIVING” IS RELEASED IN CELEBRATION OF PASSOVER/EASTER 2021

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

RECORDING ARTIST BILLY LAMONT’S NEW ALBUM “EULOGY: FLOWERS FOR THE LIVING” IS RELEASED IN CELEBRATION OF PASSOVER/EASTER

New York rock poet, performance artist, singer, activist and songwriter Billy Lamont just dropped a new concept album/CD/digital release titled “Eulogy: Flowers For The Living” in celebration of Passover and Easter. The album contains eleven unreleased songs spanning his recording career and includes new song collaborations like “LOVE Is A Revolution” with Mike Peters of The Alarm, and “If I Were A Singer” with the late Larry Norman, widely known as The Father Of Christian Rock. This album also contains a never before released early experimental recording Lamont did with electronic/industrial music pioneers Klayton of Circle Of Dust, Celldweller and Scandroid fame, and guitarist/songwriter Bill Poulos, called “The Poet’s Eye.”

“It is meaningful to me that this album dropped in the holy timing now during Passover and for Easter. This soulful, hopeful album filled with faith and light, was born during the challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic, and propaganda narratives assaulting people’s minds from every direction. It feels like the grace of GOD that it was released, after many delays, in the high holy day timing of Passover, the festival of first fruit offerings to GOD when darkness is rebuked, and also for the celebration of the resurrection of JESUS , with the eternal new beginnings Easter represents,” Lamont said.

“Eulogy: Flowers For The Living,” an eleven song Alternative Rock album arrives hot on the heels of the success of Billy Lamont’s latest book “Words Ripped From A Soul Still Bleeding: Poems For The Future Edition.”

“This album is similar to my latest book in that it is torn from my real life, with its warts and all imperfections and vulnerabilities, but also has a rawness, wisdom, and grace to it, like it is bleeding light. I was very close to my Nana as a child and she used to say, ‘Give me my flowers while I’m living, not when I’m dead,’ and that is where the concept of the songs and gorgeous page six page booklet got it’s inspiration ” Lamont shared.

“Eulogy: Flowers For The Living” can be purchased and digitally downloaded on iTunes and Amazon.com, or can be streamed and listened to on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon Music, Pandora and many other popular sites.

Billy Lamont has appeared on national television and radio shows, given in-store multimedia performance book signing events at major bookstores, such as Barnes & Noble in the U.S., and toured with rock festivals such as Lollapalooza several times.

“My new album is filled with passion and is alive in spirit! It is filled with heart and the light of original thought, which Is refreshing in this era of artificial intelligence being sold to, and forced on everyday people, in an attempt to control them. My prayer is that my new album brings liberty and love to all those who will listen,” Lamont concluded,
