Lawrence Lambert - Vocals and Guitar
Raised on a farm in rural Virginia, Lawrence Lambert started singing as a child with his twin brother and older brother and sister. Although the group could never replace the Jackson Five, it gave the kids a great way to spend those quiet nights in Pungo, Virginia. Music has always been a big part of Lambert's life. Nicknamed "The Voice" for his unique vocal style and crystal clear delivery, Lawrence has toured nationally as a member of the vocal group Big Wide Grin. He has recorded with many artists in Tidewater, Virginia and has released a critically acclaimed solo album “Soul Folk.” Inspired by the great singer/songwriters of modern times, Lawrence “The Voice” now brings his great talents to bear upon the Great American Songbook.
The mid-twentieth century was a great era for the popular song. The golden age of movie musicals brought us classics like “Over the Rainbow” and “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” At the same time, the sophisticated jazzy tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and many more captivated listeners. A few years later, great artists like Etta James, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder brought us one gem of a song after another, each one woven into the fabric of the lives of all who lived through those dynamic times. The classic soul music of the sixties and seventies is also a rich source of memorable music, with an emphasis on danceable rhythms and messages of peace and love.
Little Doors is a musical group that wanders through this seemingly endless canon of great songs, gathering tunes like shells on the beach and taking them home to enjoy again and again. Simply presented with vocals, guitar, upright bass and percussion, these songs take the listener to a place in their past ; a place of nostalgia evoking forgotten joys or heartaches, sometimes with a fresh appreciation that comes from having been away from an old friend for too long.
