George Lamond (born George Garcia on February 25, 1967) is an American Freestyle music singer. Born in Washington, DC, he is of Puerto Rican descent.

Career

Lamond began singing backup for various artists before landing a solo deal with Columbia Records. His first album, released in 1990, Bad of the Heart had many underground dance hits like Bad of the Heart (#25 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990), Look Into My Eyes (#4 Hot Dance Club Play, 1990) and Without You (#4 Hot Dance, 1989), all co-produced by New York producer Chris Barbosa. In 1990, Lamond scored a hit with Brenda K. Starr on the duet “No Matter What” (#49 Billboard Hot 100).

His follow-up releases received press and were successful, but less successful than on his previous releases. His second album, 1992’s In My Life, included a remake of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, in addition to the single “Where Does That Leave Love?” (#59 Hot 100, 1992), which made an impact on sales and radio but less of an impact in the clubs or charts as previous releases. Lamond has also released a couple of salsa albums and scored a number of hits on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks. 2001 saw the release of his highly acclaimed salsa album GL on Sony Records.

Recent times

In September 2006 Lamond returned with the release of his album Oye Mi Canto, bringing a new sound to his music career. The album was a combination of reggaeton, bachata, and salsa, with seven songs produced by G1E Productions. This album was also released on Sony International. In 2008 Lamond released a new single titled “What is Love” on an album titled Don’t Look Back, and a cover of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” Session 2, produced by famed freestyle producer, Carlos “After Dark” Berrios. Lamond is featured on the Lucas Prata cover of Level 42’s ‘Something About You’ found on Prata’s Never Stop Dreamin’ album.
