The rock performer suggests, “maybe love is all we need”. It sounds like Nick is on to something and we just had to take a listen.

As Nick Lamb sings, “yeah I’m just a simple man doing the best I can, just trying to make ends meet”, he connects with everyday listeners who happen to come from all walks in life.

Nick Lamb MusicAccording to Nick Lamb, “music is the soul’s interpretation of life’s moments”. Hailing from a small coal town in Central PA, Nick was the third son of a musical couple Tom and Lorraine Lamb. Tom, Nick’s father was known about town and recognized as a local celebrity because he played music and performed country on local rock and roll radio stations and at town functions. Nick’s father was recognized for his voice, charm and acoustic guitar, ultimately “bringing down the house” during his performances. WPHB in Philipsburg, PA held an all-day tribute in Tom’s honor when he passed away.

Nick’s mother, Lorraine was a passionate writer who juggled managing the home, raising 5 boys and being a wife to Tom who was affectionately named “the Animal!” (Nick Lamb). Lorraine wrote 3 romances, one contemporary novel using a traditional typewriter and conducting research for her work at the public library. Nick says Lorraine was the “greatest author you’ve never read!” She once told him, “you have the best parts of both your Father and I” (Nick Lamb).

Around the age of 13, Nick received his most prized gift which was a one-speaker cassette deck and two Def Leppard cassette tapes. It was at this time that he started to dream of a career in  music.

Nick’s foray into a music career was inevitable, sealed by fate as he suggests. He is a self-taught musician who not only sings, but plays the guitar, bass and drums. At 29, Nick Lamb earned his Bachelor’s degree in film and video at Penn State University and later went on to get his MFA in creative writing from Wilkes University.

Nick has a variety of influences in creating his signature sound. According to Nick, “there is something special about a guitar accompanying a great rhythm section that awakens his spirit inside” (Nick Lamb).

Though Nick grew up in poverty, it did not stop him from from appreciating some of the best things in life to include family, friends and passion. He was able to see beyond the superficial and now writes music about personal moments in his own life, friendships he has made along the way. To Nick Lamb, music is his religion and he has been described as a master at capturing emotions in life’s moments through storytelling and composition. Though Nick respects all genres of music, he has a special preference for Rock & Roll. Nick says, “life is a storm and music is one of the may forms of shelter we seek” (Nick Lamb). For Nick, music has provided shelter his entire life (Nick Lamb).

The latest music release by Sam Neher “What You Gonna Do About It” ft. Vivian Lam from his album ‘Travels to Nowhere’ is a slow-tempo song that carries a catchy tune. Sam Neher creates an entertaining fusion of pleasant melodies, smooth vocals and tranquil instrumentals. The track consists of ambient waves, the orchestrated sounds of the violin, deep grooves of indie-soul and drum and guitar sequences which are unmistakably rock. Sam’s vocal performance on “What You Gonna Do About It” is compelling and his songwriting as an artist is inspirational. In fact, we were blown away by this artist’s talent and cannot wait to share it with you! Check out our music roundup below…

Sam Neher is clearly a great musician and fantastic singer. Fans of the art will find this to be true when first coming into contact with the musician’s work. Sam spent over 200 hours in the studio putting together his project ‘Travels to Nowhere’ and we must say that the album is certainly impressive.

On the track, “What You Gonna Do About It”, Sam performs with a soulful voice that has a calming ambiance. He has a youthful tone when he sings, one that will most certainly resound with younger audiences. The song opens up with gentle harmonies sung by Sam along with a musical accompaniment to include a deep percussive sequence, the pensive strumming of a guitar and emotive piano chords. Instrumentally, the song transitions to complement the tonal changes in Sam’s voice and his personality at specific moments on the track. His voice as an instrument works well to communicate the message embedded within his song. As a vocalist, he showcases himself to be a calming force.

As “What You Gonna Do About It” progresses, the song delivers textured sound layers that navigate through various tempos and levels. The track, which is more alternative rock than pop has some very cinematic nuances mostly driven through a compelling string performance which expressed throughout the entire track. There are some pop vibes that are conveyed through some bouncy notes ⅓ of the way through the song when Sam sings, ‘“reap what you sew and I’ll share with you and it’s not a place that you want to see”. This measure quickly morphs into a melodic phrase which then opens up into an acoustic section where the singer scats a few harmonies before converging with the string and percussion-infused chorus.

The lyrical content on “What You Gonna Do About It” is deceived by the title itself. Prior to listening, audiences may expect to hear just another pop song, but this is not at all the case. “What You Gonna Do About It” shares an copious amount of songwriting. Each verse on the song is penned with poetic lyrics. For example, Sam sings, “turning pages on a park bench, the pages of your life that are turning too fast”. He asks, “what are you gonna do about it?”. Sam later sings, waiting on the payphone, and the land line stops ringing”, “what you gonna do about it?”. The verses on the song are powerful and likely to get listeners thinking about significant moments in their life. Sam is sure to let audiences know that he can relate.

Sam uses a selection of vivid imagery to create a sonic experience. Through every verse, fans can visualize with great detail and imagination what is taking place on the track. He brings it down with an inspiring chorus and hook using metaphors such as, “caught in the water of the open sea” and “fire’s in the air like the Fourth of July” and “the story of a leaf in a cloud of blue”. The singer tells audiences that the world isn’t some glitzy show, he wants to know what’s really going behind the facade.
