Billy Lamont, an internationally acclaimed Long Island born Poet, will be performing a special Beyond Babylon 777 Multi-Media Concert in celebration of his soon to be released book of poems entitled Words Ripped From A Soul Still Bleeding, that will be distributed to major and independent book stores nationally and internationally in September. This Beyond Babylon 777 event will be held on Friday, July 7th at Elwood Cinema, 1950 Jericho Turnpike, East Northport, NY 11731 as a 4:30- 6:30 PM Matinee. $10.


Global Poet Billy Lamont will be performing his avant-garde, post modern performance poetry with Electronic and Americana Pop Music from his latest CD/digital download album Beyond Babylon in its entirety and including synchronized film.


"I am deeply inspired and grateful about the reception my last CD/Digital Download Beyond Babylon has received and through the roof excited about my upcoming book of poems release!    It is year 5777 on the Jewish Calendar, that goes by the moon and not the sun, as is recognized by most Judeo Christians and this is part of the inspiration for this Beyond Babylon 777 event that will be held on July 7, 2017.. My innovative sacred art is all inclusive and will resonate in this Movie Cinema atmosphere,” Billy Lamont said.


Zion Lamont, Billy Lamont's 16 year old son, an aspiring Film Director, Actor, Screen Writer, Film Producer and Editor will be projecting a short video film he has made at the event to whet people's appetite for his first full length film that will begin production this summer.


"I always had a love for the art form of film and want to contribute to its rich history in some way,”  Zion Lamont said.


Recently Poet Billy Lamont was awarded a Guinness World Record for his contribution to Mike Peters of The Alarm's CD/digital download recording The Scriptures, that is a benefit for Love Hope Strength and is the 'Longest Officially Released Song Of All Time.' The Scriptures is helping foster peace in Israel as a benefit for the Love Hope Strength Organization and those fighting cancer nationally and internationally.


Poet Billy Lamont said, "Mike Peters' new recording entitled The Scriptures is like a prayer for PEACE in the HOLY LAND and is an outgrowth of his Love Hope Strength Foundation's work internationally helping Muslim, Christian and Jew fight cancer and saving lives in the Holy Land. I support this work with all my strength and wrote and recited a new four part poem I BELIEVE DREAM PEACE for this recording. The Scriptures is an all inclusive project that includes everyday artists as well as well known Rock, Punk, Pop and Gothic Music recording artists including members of The Alarm, Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros, Simple Minds, The Cult, Gene Loves Jezebel, Sisters Of Mercy, Mission UK, Generation X, Spandau Ballet as well as myself."

Billy Lamont is an American poet with an avant-garde approach to writing, music, politics and performance art. At the heart of his poetry is the passion to inspire hope and to be a voice for everyday people. His unique vision for poetry into the 21st century, combined with a belief in the power of words for creation, reformation and healing brought his influence from grassroots to national success in the 1990s and then international recognition in the 2000s. His poems encourage dignity, uphold life and have been a catalyst for many people, inside and outside of society, to live in a more loving way and to feel for different justice causes for the first time to help with personal and social reform.




In his Poetry Workshops and Assembly Programs, Lamont educates the students with New York State English Language Arts Standards for Reading and Writing in his thoughtfulness to help strengthen their skills. Lamont explains different forms of poetry to the students and then recites examples from his own poetry. He speaks about the importance of imagination and wisdom of heart and mind, in addition to knowledge, for success in life. Lamont helps affirm the students by discussing how it is okay for them to have their feelings and how healthy it is to express them in poetry. During the program Lamont recites his poem dignity to help each student understand their unique value and to help inspire them to fulfill their great potential in support of The Dignity Act that went into effect in New York State on July 1, 2012. He helps students to know that they can gain an understanding of another person through reading their poetry which can give birth to empathy for people from different cultures and subcultures. He lets them know how important empathy is in building community and stopping bullying in our schools. In Library or Classroom Workshops the students benefit from having a hope filled Professional Poet, who believes in the power of words, validate their work as well.
