Steve Lawson Info

Lauded by press and public alike, Steve Lawson's otherworldly cinematic soundscapes, made with nothing but a bass guitar and a bewildering array of pedals, have helped make him the most celebrated solo bassist in the UK. Through touring the world as solo artist, sideman and clinician/educator, and across a staggering 36 solo and collaborative releases in the last 15 years, Lawson has built an uncommonly large following for his particular brand of melodic ambient electronica, with audiences drawn in by his friendly, warm stage presence, but sticking around for the ECM-meets-Windham Hill vibe of his captivating, mostly-improvised solo and duo performances.

Those duo performances include a decade-long exploration of the art of improvised bass duets with fellow solo bassist Michael Manring, as well as ongoing collaborations with Adrian Belew bassist Julie Slick and British drummer Andy Edwards, with Californian Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Berkman and a fledgling project with former Beautiful South vocalist Briana Corrigan.
