Lawson is a fine vocalist and a superb writer who writes with a passion borne of his own experience.
Tim Lawson could well be Canada’s first major singer-songwriter since Gordon Lightfoot
Tim is destined for super-stardom, which he very much deserves.
Lawson . . . write it down . . . it’s a name you will be more than familiar with in the coming years. This quiet Canadian has a voice that must be heard.
Just received Tim Lawson’s CD, The Quiet Canadian, and quite frankly, I was emotionally-drained from the first track right through to “We All Change.”
Tim Lawson was born in London, Ontario in 1953 with a love of music. He picked up his first guitar at the age of 10, thrilled by the new Beatles music that was sweeping the world. During his school years he played music with friends, and began developing rich vocal sounds that were enhanced by Yoga training and singing in choirs. Music influences such as Shawn Phillips, James Taylor, Crosby Stills Nash and Young provided Tim with deep inspiration, while Canadian artists like Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell taught him the value of this country’s musical heritage.
It was in 1985 when Tim met Canadian war hero, Sir William Stephenson, in Bermuda, that Tim decided to focus and put his message of peace, harmony, and hope for the future to music. Tim said, “Sir William showed me that an individual can make a difference.”
The turning point in Tim’s career came 5 years later. He set out to write a song about a very profound personal experience, “I ended up proving to myself that is was possible to express my feelings through music – feelings that I could never put into words.” You are invited to share the music, message, and hope.
