Chad Lawson

Composer and Pianist

A Multi award-winning composer and pianist, Steinway Artist Chad Lawson topped the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon classical charts with his most recent album The Chopin Variations. Described by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as ‘the classical CD for people that hate classical music’, Chad’s music has motivated people to seek out the original composers that inspired his work. It is the perfect first step on a journey into classical music.

Chad hopes that his compositions will introduce the music of great composers such as Chopin and J.S. Bach to the Spotify Generation, and to people unfamiliar with classical music. His music is also influenced by his background in jazz, which he studied at Berklee College of Music before forming The Chad Lawson Trio and releasing three acclaimed jazz albums.

Performed in the US on CBS Sunday Morning and NPR’s All Things Considered Lawson’s music has also been featured in Dawson’s Creek, The Walking Dead and The Vampire Diaries, in adverts for Mulberry and Asprey and on MTV.

US streaming service Pandora invited Chad to speak before Congress about the groundbreaking influence of streaming services on the music industry and the ways that people listen to and discover music.

Chad will release his new album Bach Interpreted: Piano Variations in September 2016, accompanied by a European tour.
