At the age of 11 Earl began his professional music journey singing with the renowned Newark Boys Chorus. Having attended this highly acclaimed boys chorus school through out junior high, established the ground work for Earl’s life long commitment to, and love for music. With this early exposure to diverse musical styles, Earl’s music appreciation was so enhanced as to cover the full spectrum from classical to Jazz, with many stops in between! Performance highlights of the Boys chorus includes: international tours, television performances, and a nationally aired Kraft Foods TV commercial featuring Earl. Concert Hall performances include Lincoln Center, (Avery Fisher Hall Dedication), the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Carnegie Hall and others. These concert hall performances were often led by world famous choral conductors including, Leonard Bernstein, Robert Shaw, Peter Schickley (PDQBach) and others. After these wonder years, Earl continued to exercise his music skills participating in local and regional High School and community talent shows. Instrumental in the formation of the University High School chorus, Earl functioned as student conductor receiving many accolades for his directorship and the high standards for which the choir became known. Earl, along with the UHS chorus, went on to participate in many local and regional choral festivals. With vocal and piano training remaining high priority, Earl enrolled as a student at the Newark Community School of Performing Arts, participating regularly in musical stage productions and vocal recitals at the Newark Symphony Hall. In addition, serving as director of his church youth choir, Earl along with his five siblings, established themselves, (The Lambert Singers) as a highly regarded local family gospel music group in frequent demand throughout the Tri State metropolitan area. He was also a long time member of a local Contemporary Gospel Ensemble, “Loves’ Message”, a group highly regarded and widely recognized for its’ intricate harmonies and unique inspirational style. While attending Lebanon Valley College, Earl continued vocal training expanding his repertoire to include popular Gershwin tunes and classical arias for Tenor Voice. As a member of the Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir, Earl traveled extensively through out the US on an annual two week music tour performing a wide range of classical and popular choral works at many renowned cathedrals and concert halls. Often featured as soloist for the Concert Choir’s Negro Spiritual repertoire, Earl pored himself into these heart felt, soul stirring melodies, resulting in what most regarded as a show-stopper. To this day, spirituals remain among Earl’s personal favorites. Still impassioned by music, Earl was inevitably moved to combine his unique personal style and creativity, thereby making a natural transition into the role of singer / songwriter. After performing as a studio session background vocalist for awhile, Earl refocused his efforts solely on writing and building an impressive repertoire of original songs.
