Jarrod Lawson
Jarrod is Blessed with a voice steeped in reverence for the great soul singers that have gone before him. Yet he brings a fresh unique approach and sound of all his own. Jarrod expresses this in his innovative arrangements and original compositions as well.
Adding His formidable keyboard chops and ability to kick bass lines, comp chords and sing, makes him a musical force on many levels. But what really sets him apart is the artistic love he puts into all he does - everything he touches turns to soul.
Blessed with music, Jarrod’s early years were filled with sound in his father’s recording studio in Redwood City, California, where he discovered drums as a percussive play tool. Jarrods father, Steven taught him much about music and exposed him to many artists including the legendary Bob James, an amazing piano player and singer. Jarrod soon became infatuated with the infinite harmonic possibilities offered by the piano, and eventually moved on to become a three-year student of the acclaimed Clackamas Community College music program. It was here that Jarrod seasoned his pallet with flavors of great composers in every genre: Frederic Chopin, Errol Garner, Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Bob Marley, etc. From this was born Jarrod’s unique style of vocal/lyrical and instrumental composition. "J-Law" has been seen in concert with international acts such as Average White Band, Maceo Parker, and Angelique Kidjo to name a few.
