As a songwriter, Lamprey landed his first big break in Nashville, signing his first publishing deal in March 2015 with Brien Fisher Productions. This has enabled Lamprey to have co-writes at Sony ATV Publishing on Music Row. Fisher is well known as a Grammy award winning producer receiving acclaim for much of the success of, The Kendalls.

Influenced by artists such as George Strait, Luke Bryan and Kenny Chesney, Lamprey has been patterning himself after the all- around entertainer.
