Greg Lamboy has been singing since he could speak. Starting at age 3 he would sing himself to sleep with the songs he heard on the radio. The music continued through grade school where he got his first taste of indie stardom. “My 1st grade choir teacher found out I ‘played’ guitar and asked me to bring it to class. I stood up in front of a bunch of 6 year olds with my Sears plastic guitar, strummed one open chord and the crowd went nuts. I thought ‘Hey, I could get used to this.’” he says with a laugh.
He started writing songs in high school after purchasing his first real electric guitar (a Fender Strat he still owns), and began playing with local bands near his New Jersey home. From there he attended NYU where he studied Music Technology, showing an aptitude for production and arrangement. After a few years performing on the East Coast circuit, Lamboy moved to West Coast and settled in the San Francisco Bay Area. He quickly became a fixture in the local music scene, through his involvement with the West Coast Songwriters organization and in founding the New Acoustic Movement, a series of singer/songwriter showcases around the Bay Area.
Lamboy was fortunate enough to study vocals under the renowned Judy Davis, whose former students read like a who’s who of the music world: From Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennett, to 60’s icons like Janis Joplin and Grace Slick to later hit makers like Eddie Money, Journey, and En Vogue. “She was truly a musical mentor.” Lamboy says. “The lessons went so far beyond simple vocal exercises, going into presentation, repertoire, and music business savvy. It was the best graduate school any singer could hope for.”
2002 saw the release of his first full length album, “Every Drop of the Good”, an 11 track fully produced effort about which Music Connection said “Acoustic-pop troubadour Lamboy offers consistently melodic songs that are heartfelt observations on everyday life” followed by “Lift” in 2007, of which Evolution of Media affirmed “Lamboy, with vocals to knock you off your feet and break down hearts of stone, has the ability to reach out to the audience, connecting him to the listener, and make them think that he's talking only to them.”
Always looking to stretch his boundaries, Greg formed the Greg Lamboy Band with some top Bay Area musicians and produced his 2009 follow up EP, "Where You Are". "It was more about getting a group together and emphasizing performance over production", Lamboy says. The American Songwriter Show opined “A night of Greg's songs is like opening up a window in a tiny room and seeing out to the big beautiful world beyond" after the band's performance on the program.
