Marc Schuster and Brian Lambert
Brian Lambert: Based in Denton, Texas, Brian Lambert has reinvented himself more times than he can count, but his current indie-rock sound has been heavily influenced by a constantly evolving and rotating list of artists including Gang of Youths, the Replacements, and Spoon. He used to play gigs all over the Denton-Fort Worth metroplex, but took a break from gigging to focus on a 52-week song challenge that saw him writing, recording and producing mind-blowing new jams every week for a year.
Marc Schuster: Marc Schuster has been hanging around the fringes of the Philadelphia art and music scenes since the 90s. His projects are too numerous and obscure to mention, but recent highlights include the EP There Is No Down and the children’s book Frankie Lumlit’s Janky Drumkit. When he isn’t making music, Marc interviews indie musicians on his blog, Abominations, and teaches English at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA.
Praise for Brian Lambert and Marc Schuster (Respectively):
“Lambert’s taken a step back to reshape at his own style, leading him to cozy up more to the likes of Grimes and Spoon than to the classic country folk acts he’s historically been compared to. That’s not to say that Lambert doesn’t still carry the standing of songwriters like Ol’ Hank and Dylan, but this new undertaking of indie rock is undeniably refreshing to hear, especially in this year of surprises and hard left turns.” – Jack Anderson, KUTX
“Fuzz-laden pop rock, that jangles in every conceivable place, yet still retains an air of languid melancholy… Lambert does modern pop-rock without frills and pretenses, just relying on his lived in voice and superb musicianship.” – Darrin Lee, Janglepop Hub
“Honing his craft Lambert - who has been compared to such artists as Tom Petty and Hank Williams - has been finding inspiration and writing songs since he was a teenager. Now, his blend of country, folk and rock has made him a fixture on the Texas music scene.” – Jessica De Leon, Denton County Magazine
“One of my favorite humans on the planet is Marc Schuster, who’s not only insanely creative and multi-talented, but also incredibly generous, funny and kind... Not only are his songs infectiously catchy, he has a wonderful knack for putting a youthful, often tongue-in-cheek perspective on everyday situations and problems many of us have faced at one time or another.” – Jeff Archuleta, Eclectic Music Lover
“If there was ever the perfect way to contemplate our place in the universe, then Marc Schuster’s plaintive R.E.M-meets-subtle-fuzz-pop, delivers it.” -- Darrin Lee, Janglepop Hub
