Michael Lawson is a singer-songwriter who lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. His music is melodic, timeless, timely, and reminiscent of good ole fashioned rock 'n roll.
Lawson's music career began in his hometown of Seattle, Washington in the 1980's where he fronted a pre-grunge band that sold nearly 30,000 units on a subsidiary of Capital Records. From there, Lawson expanded his musical horizons as a song-writer, playing in bands and penning songs that ranged from 1990's grunge to pop-driven keyboard songs.
His latest effort, Captain Americana, represents a triumphant return to the musical genre known as Heartland Rock: Like his previous effort, Side 2, Captain Americana harnesses the sounds of Tom Petty, John Cougar Mellencamp, Springsteen, and the Wallflowers into a fresh, unforgettable sound. Recorded at the iconic FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with his band, The Dreammakers, Captain Americana is an effort that will bring life and bounce to your next road trip. Turn it up!
