Moving the world with our music is the driving motto for WORLDMOVEMENT RECORDS. Lamont Patterson the CEO and founder of the label is living this everyday. Starting out at the tender age of five singing in the church choir and moving on to tenor saxophone as his instrument of choice, with role models such as Jazz Greats, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Roland Kirk, Lamont excelled as a musician. After high school, Lamont�s cousin Bobby Sanders, manager of Little Anthony, The Imperials and The Young Hearts, included him in their rehearsals giving him the unique opportunity to sing, dance and practice chorography ,inspiring him onward in music. In collage Lamont was offered a gig singing second tenor and writing lyrics for New Birth. The group toured with such notables as the O�Jays, Blue Magic, The Four Tops and other great sounds from the Motown era. As his talents increased, so did his desire to play a bigger role in the music industry. His first group was The Elements of Peace, an R & B group, in which he sang lead and played tenor saxophone. This would open doors for him to work with the likes of Grammy Winners Aaron Neville, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye, Ike Turner and Tina Turner in collaborative projects. It was in these collaborations that Lamont got his first taste of the production side of the business. Sensitive to how the industry required artist to change their music based on someone else�s taste, Lamont started WORLDMOVEMENT RECORDS in 1990. WMR became the place where artist could be who they truly were. Artist thrived under Lamont�s direction, leading to Platinum Records for Ghetto Hippie and Bobby Caldwell and a Gold Album for Jeffery Osborne, among others. As the industry changed, so did Lamont, moving into the digital age and following technical trends. WMR began supporting artists as an entire entity from music distribution to merchandizing and publishing, to TV and film roles. Pretty Tony became the first to release books into the market place thru World Movement Publishing. Followed by compilation CD�s for such artist as West Coast Bangz volume 1 and 2 and Coast Ridaz. Community events like The Pop Kids Program, The Rising Stars Youth Showcase held in California, Rock the Economy and The Rising Stars Industry showcase for adults held in Las Vegas each brought together artist from all genres united by a cause. Lamont believes music is a universal language.
