Owen Lamont emerged with the folk and blues-steeped single ‘Hold On’ in late 2017, and has been carving out a name for himself as an exciting solo act ever since.
Drawing influences from jazz and rock, 'I-Revolution' is a statement release from the Irish musicians who combines big band energy and sound with a soulful, delicate intimacy.
The track itself tackles the Arab Spring and the revolutionary state of geopolitics in general.
Lamont’s signature vocals stand out in the ’80s inspired musical palette alongside a colourful visual accompaniment.
The music video was initially set to be an experimental animation, but the song itself takes action against tyranny with a similar tone to Yeat's iconic poem 'The Second Coming'.
As a member of The Delawares in the early 2000s, Lamont shared a stage with legendary alt rock group Focus, blues legend Henry McCullough, Devon Sproule, Bap Kennedy and many others.
He was deemed as one of Hot Press' 'Hot for 2019' acts as a solo artist to watch in the folk, soul and blues genre.
