Equally at home singing and playing in a quiet cafe or in front of a crowd, singer/songwriter Roberta Lamb rocks to the beat of a variety of musical styles, from blues to rock, and Americana. She picked her first guitar as a child in Texas and took to singing folk songs, Spanish traditional tunes, and ballads. Roberta honed her vocal craft as a classical musician, exploring concert singing and opera in college and later in Vienna, Austria.
Back home in the USA, she took time to raise a family in Massachusetts and she eventually found her way back to her first love: American music. Once her children were launched, she picked up the guitar and started playing and singing covers while practicing guitar and listening to whatever music came her way. Strongly influenced by the vibrant music community in Boston, she started writing originals and rebranded herself as a singer songwriter. She completed her first album and performs across New England at a variety of venues, from cafes, coffeehouses and restaurants to small concert stages, porchfests and farmers markets, singing and playing her heart out.
What People Are Saying
"It's awesome. Your singing is amazing! I love how it had all the beauty of your classical singing, but still feels idiomatic and at home with blues, folk and pop. Music is sophisticated and varied-and beautifully played. Hats off to the instrumentalist! Cool songs, too. Funny!"
~GP, California fan
"Roberta, wonderful collection of music! Opening with a blast of great guitar and rhythm on Four Legged Love. Kenny knocks it out of the ballpark. I will be the first to buy the next album btw."
~ LSH, Colorado fan
"One thing I really like about your songs is the way they say something that rings very true, but in a slightly tongue-in-cheek way with rhyming lyrics."
~SG, local fan
