Composer and pianist Chad Lawson announces the release of his major label solo piano debut, Stay, set for May 1 via Decca Records US.  Where minimalism and melody meet, the five track EP and title track "Stay," is a paean to inner peace and a clarion call to just exhale and breathe. You can pre-order the EP and listen to the single here. You can watch the accompanying visualizer here.  

A modern-day master of reinvention, Lawson eschews both the trend of ancient instruments and New Age-y electronic clichés commonly heard in today's wellness music, relying only on his faithful piano, his emotional signature sound and eclectic taste for the five original songs on the EP. From the self-reflective "Stay" to the overall theme of the EP, Lawson strikes a delicate balance between the intimate and universal. "I'm just trying to invite people to take a moment and reconnect with who they are" says Lawson. "The music I make is meant to create calm." "It's about finding those times that are fleeting but buffer the soul." The music is both peaceful and transfixing.
