September: 7 For 30: Michael Lambert

Editor’s Note: We’re trying this again. Getting 30 artists to answer the same question. For the month of September–one for each day–we’ll be getting 30 Lubbock-West Texas singer-songwriters to answer the following question. For the complete list of September answers, click here.

Is there a song that you’ve written that you find yourself singing with your eyes closed more often than not when performed live? Why?

“The song I tend to catch myself singing with eyes closed is “Nostalgia Isn’t What it Used to Be.” It’s a song that hits close to home for me. I found myself pulling a lot of influence from family while writing this album. It’s starts very soft and quiet, intentionally done to entice attention while the second verse, in contrast evokes hope, only to fall back into an orchestral void. And trust me, I feel every emotion along the ride. I suppose it seems more likely to want to close your eyes while singing something personal or emotional, but I also get lost in the atmosphere of the music as well. It’s a totally different experience when music alone can move you. I try to sneak in an instrumental moment or two in a song just for a little personal pleasure.”

Michael Lambert, Slow Relics, singer-songwriter
