Born in Baton Rouge, LA, in 1976, Jay Lamm began his foray into writing when he published his first essay, The Dark Tunnels of the Bone Box: the Astonishing Story behind the Music of Mr. Doctor in 2003. After receiving a BA in Criminal Justice and English from Southeastern Louisiana University in 1999 he pursued a life of music, releasing one solo album of planetarium/new age music and two studio albums with his mercurial metal band, Cea Serin. He has been a featured performer and touring musician with Cirque Dreams, and also provides session work as a bass player, keyboardist, and vocalist for other studio albums. Jay Lamm has also written and recorded original music for movies, television, web series, and planetariums. Lamm maintains a steady blog schedule on his personal website where he writes about music related topics and how-to instructionals—mostly geared towards bass guitar and live performance issues. Lamm currently serves as the Planetarium Producer and the Administrator for the Louisiana Art & Science Museum’s planetarium/science blog where he frequently contributes articles relating to science, recent discoveries, and space exploration. Currently, Lamm is working on a third album with Cea Serin, a solo album, and has finished his first novel.
