Chad Lawson's Piano Calms It Down

Feb 16, 2021

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.
