About

Kevin Lambert has a pure, stripped-back sound. Whether underpinned by acoustic guitar or piano, his songs create a comfortable and familiar living room feel. 

Singer-songwriter Kevin Lambert steers back to the simple sounds of the likes of Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson. Story is the backbone of his songs, much as it is with Bob Dylan or Ben Harper. 

Kevin Lambert’s songwriting process often begins with a melody and gibberish. The melodies are already infectious, and then out of the nonsense lyrics comes a word or a phrase that becomes the foundation stone of the song. Kevin Lambert builds out the song’s story from there. 

London-based since 2006, Kevin Lambert is as true to his stripy jeans as he is to his South African roots.

Debut Single - This Ain't an Ordinary Fire

SONG STORY - THIS AIN'T AN ORDINARY FIRE

This ain’t an ordinary fire is melodically and lyrically thoughtful and catchy. True to Kevin Lambert’s process, the title line emerged, followed by the words “I saw your hand in the light as you took my heart to yours.” Something about the imagery grabbed him, and he built that out into a story of two imperfect people stumbling through their relationship.

This Ain't an Ordinary Fire - Lyrics

VERSE 1
We made this fire 
Out of wood, sticks and brier 
Don’t know how we got this far 
There were days when we got cold inside 
But we held on for life 

PRE-CHORUS
This ain’t an ordinary fire 
Alive when we’re hurting 
Holds when we’re learning 
to love 

CHORUS
I saw your hand 
In the light as you took 
My heart to yours 

Freedom we found 
We forgive 
and we love 
We love

TAG 
This ain’t an ordinary fire 

VERSE 2 
The rain came down 
Thought it'd be over now 
But there was more than we could see 
Beneath the ashes, a smouldering comes alive 
Now a flame that lives in me
