“If someone’s wearing a mask, he’s gonna tell you the truth.” – Bob Dylan, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story. Music has a long history of masked performers. Many have hidden themselves behind face paint and alter egos, blurring the line between person and artist and creating critical distance for their message to bloom. Dylan himself knew better than most the impact myth-making could have on one’s audience and art, but for pianist and instrumental songwriter Lambert, a Sardinian bull mask gives him something else, something he’s craved since he first started writing songs – freedom. Freedom to play a role, to be someone else, and to fully unleash his creative powers.
