John Lambert began his career studying Graphic Design at Dun Laoghaire College of Art & Design, Dublin during which time the foundations for his debut album were concocted during late rainy evenings alone in 'the computer room'. Appearing in 2002, 'Gothica' presented a lo -fi splice of dense electronica and finger picked acoustic touches swirling in a wintery cauldron.
In 2005 the mini album 'Dictaphone Showreels' was then released on Lazybird records featuring a more stripped back acoustic sound intertwined with wistful melodies and distressed field recordings. Around this time Lambert began performing a one man, guitar and a plethora of pedals show, one of which drew the attention of inimitable Irish DJ Donal Dineen who subsequently teamed up with Lambert to perform a series of live shows with Dineen providing tailor prepared visuals. Around this time the song 'Konichiwa' drew the attention of John Kelly on Lyric FM who then invited Lambert to perform in a live night of acts played on his show The JK ensemble.
In 2007, Lambert then received a 6 month music fellowship residency in The Model, Sligo spending the year recording his next offering 'Penny Black' which was released on Lazybird to rave reviews in March 2008 receiving a much coveted 5 star review in the Irish Times music supplement - The Ticket.
During the Model residency Lambert brought mexican artist Murcof to Sligo for a one off show and was further commissioned to create an online sound project which became the Relay Project, an unbroken chain of sound pieces where each installment is created in response to the previous so that ideas and sounds shift, mutate and evolve over time.
The project which features esteemed artists such as Loscil, Bibio, Pierre Bastien, Hulk and Marie Guilleray has since featured as an installation in the DEAF Festival in 2009 and can be explored in full at www.relayproject.com
Having taken a hiatus from live performance for much of 2010, Lambert is now preparing his third album which is set to see the light of day in early 2012.
Lambert has also briefly played guitar live for Si Shroeder & Seti the First.
