Chad Lawson's Piano Calms It Down

Courtesy of Chad Lawson

You might know pianist, bandleader, composer and podcaster Chad Lawson for his interpretations of Chopin and Bach, or his jazzy reimagining of the Wizard of Oz, or his years leading The Chad Lawson trio. Maybe you've heard his compositions for the podcasts "Lore" and "Unobscured," or his solo piano albums.

His compositions, Lawson tells John Floridis, benefit from a virtuous circle: listeners share stories with him about the capacity of his music to help heal body, mind and spirit, which in turn inspires his creativity.

(Broadcast: Musician's Spotlight, 2/16/21 and 6/1/21. Listen on the radio Tuesdays, 7 p.m., or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
