Super producer Cainon Renard Lamb was honored this past weekend at the 2017 Jazz In The Gardens Music Festival. Receiving awards for their strides in music and the community, Lamb, Uncle Luke & Betty Wright were all honored by Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert. The two day festival was held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, FL. The festival crowd also witnessed performances by The Roots, Jill Scott, Andra Day, Common & LL Cool J.
Lamb is a Grammy-nominated record producer, composer and songwriter from Miami, Florida. He has worked with the likes of Beyoncé, SWV, Missy Elliott, Monica, Keyshia Cole and Jazmine Sullivan. In 2017, Lamb made his rapping debut on Missy Elliott's single "I'm Better". Lamb is currently working on his own project as he prepares to cross the bridge from producer to artist.
A native of Miami, Florida, Lamb's involvement with music started in the church, as a drummer in the church band. During his college years, Cainon Lamb was given an MPC aka "Beat Machine" as a gift from his late mother Regina T. Lamb. He utilized his musical background to create music for his local gospel rap group called Against da Grain. Lamb's first major song placement was on Fantasia Barrino's 2004 debut album Free Yourself. In 2007, Lamb produced his first #1 record with Keyshia Cole's Grammy-nominated single "Let It Go". Lamb also produced Jazmine Sullivan's chart-topping 2008 debut single "Need U Bad". In 2011, Lamb started his own company "Lambo Music Group" and he co-produced "Countdown" by Beyonce. That record peaked at #1 on the Billboard Dance Club/Play Songs Chart.
