From the structured sounds of the classrooms at Berklee School of Music in Boston to the years spent perfecting her storytelling on the stages of the Honky Tonks in Nashville. Don’t be mistaken by her colorful clothes, flying red ponytails or candid smile. When Lambert steps on stage you will witness all her experiences melting together to generate a result that defies music genres or styles.
