The Front of the Line
DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED JUNE 12, 2020
Lawson's debut album, The Front of the Line, dropped on June 12, 2020. Recorded, mixed, and mastered in my garage and at The Bubble in Austin, it's seriously pretty cool. Big thanks to Sam N. Park, Matt, Brando, Gilligan, Mad Dawg, E+L=W, & everybody who took a listen to this music and gave me advice during the long, grueling process. The album will include 7 of my favorite songs written and recorded over a three-year period.
