Never wanting to settle for a single genre or style, his evocative stories are often told against a backdrop of varying sounds and colors.
âI had a lot of genre issues because I never write a song with a specific genre in mind. It’s really more about the feelings I want to convey as well as the color or tonal description that matches the song. So I would say it’s a mix of all genres according to different songs, âsays LambC. the moving train.
His technical skills all stem from his winding journey through music. Always passionate about what he does, the “Dear caramel” hitmaker started his career as a drummer before finding a skill in writing and producing songs.

âOnce I entered Berklee College of Music, I said to myself that I had to learn something new, because it seemed a little pointless to me to come here and relearn what I already knew.

Since 2015, LambC has released a myriad of hits, both as a singer and as a producer. This includes his endearing track ‘Love like that’. Released as part of his 2017 EP Absence ‘Side A’, the sweet and heartfelt love song has resonated with listeners around the world and continues to be one of the singer’s most popular hits.

Drawing inspiration from all aspects of life – from the movies he watches to his adorable cat, LambC’s music reads like a diary full of love-fueled adventures and mundane reflections on life.
âI am inspired by everything. I can drink a cup of coffee and get a song idea, watch a movie, watch cool videos, read books.

âWe also liked each other a lot in songwriting so whenever someone had a great idea it was very easy to decide and move on. Basically it was the two of us just in our studios. at home everyday chopping songs, right and center – it was amazing. This album was also the first album I ever released, it was co-produced with someone else, this which also adds to the specialty, âhe adds.
