Who are Lawson? Find out all about the exciting new 4-piece band from London.
(L-R) Andy Brown (Lead Vocals & Rhythm Guitar), Ryan Fletcher (Bass), Adam Pitts (Drums) and Joel Peat (Lead Guitar).
Even though (L-R) Ryan's from Chesterfield, Andy's from Liverpool, Adam's from Brighton and Joel's from Mansfield - the boys have based themselves in London.
Lawson have performed at a number of high profile venues and supported The Saturdays and The Wanted on their tours. Picture: Facebook
The boys sold out their debut headline tour in January, incredible for a band who had yet to release a single, and their current May UK tour. Picture: Facebook
Lawson began life in 2009 when Adam (second from the left) contacted Andy (2nd from the right), who had been posting acoustic covers on YouTube to ever increasing views. He said ‘I love what you’re doing, if you ever form a band can I be in it?’ And so they formed a band….
Adam then contacted his friend Ryan, who in turn recruited his music college buddy Joel, and the foursome soon got stuck in, rehearsing and gigging like men possessed and attracting more and more followers.
‘When She Was Mine’ is their epic debut single. It was produced by John Shanks, the Grammy Award winning producer of Take That’s albums ‘Beautiful World’ and ‘The Circus'. Picture: Facebook
Despite it’s uplifting vibe, ‘When She Was Mine’ is about a broken heart - Andy Brown, Lawson frontman, wrote the song after finding out that his ex-girlfriend had a new boyfriend. In a recent interview with Capital FM, Andy revealed that the song was about his ex-girlfriend, Mollie King from The Saturdays. Picture: Facebook
"When She Was Mine" is due for release on May 27th but available to pre-order now. Picture: Facebook
"Robustly melodic guitar-pop anthems by the bucketload". We like the sound of that boys! Picture: Facebook
