LAMONE - BIOGRAPHY


Who is Lamone? Lamone, the self proclaimed "X-man" aka (Lomon Andrews), pulls in the crowd. He is a must hear, multi-talented vocalist, songwriter, producer, and must see performer with an incredible vocal range. Born and raised in Waterbury Connecticut, and being a product of "Generation X", Lamone is no stranger to going against the grain, or straying from the norm. Never a follower, always a leader, this "soulja" of music and art blazes his own trail. With his ability to channel and evoke the artistry of such legends as Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke and Donny Hathaway, Lamone has devolped a soulful yet eclectic style all his own. That ability combined with his dynamic stage presence commands audience attention at every show. Growing up, "Lomon" heard music all the time - "day in and day out."

His mom sang at home and in church and his dad always listened to all the latest music, which had a tremendous effect on Lomon growing up a 70's soulchild. Influenced by his idols: Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Patti, Chaka and Aretha, Lomon started singing at the age of 10 and hasnt stopped. When asked what singing does for him Lamone replied: "Singing is my high, it relaxes me and reduces all tension."

He is currently touring America with Najee. Lomon sang "Falling in Love" on Najee's cd, My Point of View, released in August 2005 Lamone is also working on his much anticipated cd entitled "Eclectically Speaking",which is currently in production with various producers such as Michael Terry, and Jay Rowe. Lamone has performed as part of opening acts for Phyllis Hyman, Keith Washington, The Stylistics, The Chi-Lites, and the Dramatics. He has also performed on stage with Chaka Khan and Anita Baker and sang background for Melissa Morgan.

Ladies and Gentleman, this is one "exclusive" artist you don't wanna miss. So stay tuned! The wait will soon be over.
