Payton Lamar discovered her passion for music at a young age and was encouraged by her grandmother to sing in church.
Payton went on to compete in talent shows and began writing her own songs. After high school, she joined a worship ministry school where she met her husband, Matthew. An opportunity arose for them to pursue their dream careers in Paris, so they dropped everything and moved overseas. Matthew played for a professional basketball league and Payton joined a Christian music label. Once their visas expired, they relocated to Nashville where Payton now runs a small video production company and focuses on her music. Payton most recently landed a spot on Team Blake on NBC’s The Voice. This experience motivated her to release her first solo project, “A Colorful Christmas” which features many other artists from The Voice season 19! She is expected to release her first solo Pop EP in the upcoming year, which she hopes will uplift and inspire people all around the world.
