Meet The Band
LAME THE BAND
Steve Cox and Chris Johnson met while serving on the praise team at church, they both had been writing songs separately but soon discovered that when they collaborated the songs became more than they ever would have been. For four and a half years they wrote and performed countless songs as response songs and simply songs that were being stored away for this moment, when they could develop them more and present them in a way that would reach more people for the Lord.
In 2011 they decided to start recording their songs. Bill Bentley, a longtime friend, fellow musician, and owner/operator of Vintage Music Store and Studios began to record and add his guitar, mandolin and various instruments to complete the sound. After the 3rd album “I’m Not Perfect” was complete, it was decided in order to play these songs live they needed a percussionist and a bass player. Kent Redd (a very talented singer and guitarist as well) offered to step in and become “Lame”. Ash Foreman, a very talented and dedicated percussionist, became LAME as well. He adds all the shaker, drums (and whatever sound required) to complete the live performance of the songs LAME has published so far. In late 2013 LAME began to put together material for their first cd as a full band. After several months of recording, editing, mixing, mastering and developing artwork, the new CD “LAME the Band”was complete. Check out a sample of a song from it on the home page.We most recently completed our 5th CD”5 + 1”, a CD with 6 songs and is half the price of the other CD’s. LAME is continuing to make new music, 5 new songs have been written and are being presented in upcoming LAME performances.
All of the songs are original songs, but the flavor and styles of music are so familiar you will feel like you have heard them before, the style or Genre is hard to characterize, but people have stated that we have a sound that falls somewhere between James Taylor, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and Gordon Lightfoot. Please come give us a listen and Decide for yourselves!

All glory to God and our Lord Jesus Christ!
