|Ten Shekel Shirt|
|Origin||New Haven, CT, USA|
|Past members||Austin Morrison
In 2000, Hiebert wrote, recorded and co-produced the album Much. Before releasing the album Hiebert recruited Austin Morrison (drums) and Tommy Lee (bass) to fill out the band. The independent release of that album sparked the attention of Integrity Music who then signed Hiebert. Much was nominated for a Dove Award and featured the No. 1 song "Ocean".
While recording the band's second album, Risk, Hiebert co-founded a charity called Love146 to help combat child slavery and exploitation. Soon after Risk was released (2003, INO Records), Hiebert put his music career on pause to focus on the charity.
In December 2008, Lamont Hiebert and Rounder Records agreed to part ways after budget constraints prevented adequate promotion of 'Jubilee'. Lamont was given all the rights back to his recordings and is rumored to be working on a solo project to coincide with a "best of" Ten Shekel Shirt album.
