Daz Lamberton - drums


Where it all began

Drummer and songwriter Daz Lamberton starting writing and recording in the late eighties working with singers Melanie Williams (Sub Sub) and the late, great Denise Johnson (Primal Scream).

Following this he played for a couple of years with Gary Hughes of TEN recording a few songs and performing a number of showcases in Germany including Koln Music Hall, Frankfurt Music Hall and a tv slot supporting Roger Chapman from Family.

His services were very much in demand as we went into the new millennium and this includes stints with funk rock band Omkara who released a self financed album and did a UK tour supporting Skin. Geordie rock band Whatever who played Splash Festival in Venezia Italy headlined by Skunk Anansie with another UK tour supporting Skin on their promo tour for the album ‘Lucky’.

From Then to Now

We’re so excited to have a musician as experienced as Daz on board with White Skies and on joining the band he commented:


« I hooked up with Mick White for the first time earlier this year when I stood in for a video shoot for a song on his solo album. It was a great day and we got on like a house on fire. Fast forward, which is Mick’s walking pace, another album, great songs, great bunch of guys. Next few months will be a very exciting time in bringing the album to the stage »

The Future

In 2011 Daz joined up with guitarist Myke Gray in Red White and Blues and went out on tour to promote the album Shine. This included supports with Chickenfoot, Whitesnake and Lynyrd Skynyrd on their UK tours throughout 2011/12 and a slot at the Download festival in 2012.

During lockdown Daz contributed to the debut solo album Songs From A Common Man from actor Stuart Wolfenden (Deadman’s Shoes) which received positive reviews from several name artists including Badly Drawn Boy and Reverend and the Makers.

Daz is currently recording material for another album project at Lisa Stansfield’s studio for his own band “North Blood” set to be released later this year.
