Matt Lawson


Matt Lawson is from the tiny but beautiful Mount Desert Island off the coast of Maine. He is the son of a lobster fisherman, and grew up far away from the world of jazz and its urban sensibility. Matt gained success early in his musical life when he was chosen as Outstanding Soloist in 1993 at the Maine State Jazz Festival.
