Chad Lawson

What started as an inspiration by Sha-na-na as a child, to debuting at #1 on iTunes Classical with his 2014 release, The Chopin Variations, Chad Lawson has accomplished much in between. While in school at the Berklee College of Music, Chad began his career as a studio musician. After his studies at Berklee, he decided to go on tour with Babik Reinhardt (son of legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt).

Following his stint on the road, Chad formed the Chad Lawson Trio. They released their self-titled debut album in 1997 followed by Dear Dorothy; The Oz Sessions (jazz trio arrangements of The Wizard of Oz) in 2002 and Unforeseen two years later. Taking a sabbatical from the jazz trio in 2007, Lawson went on tour in Europe and South America with Julio Iglesias as a keyboardist.
