    Ten Shekel Shirt is a rock band founded by lead singer Lamont Hiebert. Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada, Lamont moved to the US and eventually settled in New Haven, CT, where he started Ten Shekel Shirt along with original band members Austin Morrison and Tommy Lee. Together, they released two acclaimed albums, Much in 2001 and Risk in 2003. Much was nominated for a Dove Award and featured the No. 1 song "Ocean."

    While recording Risk, Lamont co-founded a charity called Love146 to help combat child slavery and exploitation. Soon after Risk was released, Lamont put his music career on pause to focus on the charity. Love146 quickly gained recognition for its work, earning the Myspace Impact Award for Social Justice, and being named an “Agent Of Change” by GQ magazine.

    In 2008, Lamont re-launched his music career and signed with the Boston-based label Rounder Records. This led to the release of Ten Shekel Shirt's 2008 album, Jubilee, which was later re-released in 2009 on Lamont's own label, Art And Action Media. Lamont’s experiences as a modern-day abolitionist are at the heart of many of the songs on Jubilee. Though the album’s songs deal with weighty subject matter, there is a strong message of hope throughout.
