A Steinway artist with multiple #1 releases, Chad Lawson has a different approach to classical music; don’t make it classical.  

His 2018 release, re:piano, pushes the envelope of the piano ’sounds’ like with the album composed of loops, effects and layers of textured landscapes.  all from a piano. Lawson was invited to share his approach to re:piano on NPR’s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon and continues to garner press across the Globe.  “re:piano” debuted at #1 on the iTunes Classical Chart upon week of release.

Lawson’s last release,  The Chopin Variations, after debuting at #1 in Billboard and also iTunes Classical Chart, caught the attention of CBS TV’s Sunday Morning,  NPR’s All Things Considered and PRI’s Performance Today.  Along with the violinist from Lady Gaga and the cellist from Kanye West, the trio has turned the classical world on its head as it has ‘deconstructed Chopin’ into a modern-day/minimalist landscape. The Huffington Post called it “Intricate elegance” while NPR’s All Things Considered said “You haven’t heard the Polish composer performed the way Chad Lawson plays him.”  Lawson simply wanted to re-introduce Chopin to the Spotify generation.  The generation where genres no longer apply.  The generation that hears only two styles of music; good or bad.

Chad is the official composer for the Amazon television series, Lore, in addition to the podcast titled the same. His music has also been used for The Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Viceland and numerous commercial placements have included clients such as IBM, Microsoft, Purina, Delta Airlines, USB Financial, Asprey of London and many more.
