Dillan Lamb

Biography

I realised from an early age that singing was a passion of mine, but I kept it away from my family and friends. It was not until I entered the school's battle of the band's competition at 15 for this passion to be heard. It took everyone by surprise as all my pals and my Mum and Dad thought I had secretly learned a musical instrument. I remember the audiences reaction and the teachers surprise when I sang in front of them for the first time and loved it.

My first big gig was at the end of year leavers assembly where I sang in front of 1200 people and knew then this is what I wanted to do. Although I went to college and took music it was too academic for me, what I wanted to do was perform. What it did do though was show me how to structure a song, so I started to write my own material.

I've been fortunate to work with a couple of exceptionally talented musicians of my age, acoustic guitarist Jack Lyons where we performed on Silk Radio and did a couple of charity gigs one being for the Gap Centre in Birmingham, thanks to Dayton Grey and his lovely partner Nicki Mawby for the invite. And currently, Harry Richardson who lives locally, an amazing pianist. We first met on the football pitch at under 14's where we played for rival teams, who would have thought then we would have hit it off musically.
