Words can either create or destroy. You can build someone up with a heartfelt compliment or easily tear them down with a hurtful remark.
Thankfully, today's guest - Billy Lamont - uses his words and his voice on the creation side. As a poet for over 30 years, his focus has been to help, inspire and bring some joy into the lives of others.
Whether it's performing skits with his family when he was a kid or reading poetry for a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving or performing at bigger venues including MTV and Lollapalooza.
He has published several audio poetry albums, including Into the 21st Century and Beyond Babylon.
Billy has also penned three poetry books: The Gallery of Light, Strobe Light Generation and Words Ripped From a Soul Still Bleeding.
He even has a spot in the Guinness Book of World's Records!
He encourages future poets to be true to thier own voice and reminds them that their words are needed.
I've known him since 2004 and always felt this artistic kinship with him.
As I hope you will.
Enjoy my chat with Billy Lamont.
