The best part of what we do is being invited into stories from the heart. With a voice that echoes through all the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, Jess Lambert proves that she is no Creature of Fear but a survivor in every sense of the word. We are not defined by our challenges but how we rise up and imprint on others with the very best of who we are. Get her full digital album here. – Fresh Independence
Home is where your story begins … please tell us a little about yours.
Home is just north of Seattle. I live with a Labradoodle named Frodue, and a human named Chad. Guitars and music gear are strewn about the living room, and the walls are covered in framed posters of Cash, Davis, and Gillespie. It’s rarely quiet here. Music is usually flowing out of speakers or being strummed on guitar strings. This is where Creature of Fear was recorded.
How did music find you…
Music must have found me at a very young age because I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t in love with it. I always loved to sing but was too scared to sing in front of anyone, my voice usually managed to lodge somewhere in my throat. While growing up I wanted to write songs, but I didn’t play an instrument so I wrote poetry instead. When I was twenty-three I was given a guitar for my birthday. I started writing songs as soon as I was able to play a few chords.
