It was during this time that Lawrence discovered his love for the bass guitar, and he immersed himself in the world of music, learning to play not only the bass, but also the trombone and guitar. After years of perfecting his craft, Lawrence emerged in the 1990s as an artist to watch out for, and his latest single, “Something for You” is a testament to his incredible talent.

The song effortlessly blends elements of jazz and gospel, creating what Lawrence calls “Eclectic Soul”, a sound that has become his signature style. “Something for You” has been a hit with both fans and critics, reaching number one on the Billboard charts and earning Lawrence a dedicated following. His smooth, soulful vocals draw comparisons to icons like Aaron Neville and Ronald Isley, while his bass-playing has been likened to the likes of Marcus Miller and Stanley Clarke. Lawrence is currently on tour with Don Laka, a South African jazz musician, producer, and composer, and together they are wowing audiences with their infectious blend of jazz, funk, and soul. With his natural talent and undeniable charm, Lawrence is truly a force to be reckoned with in today’s music scene. In addition to his successful music career, Lawrence is also a qualified history teacher and runs his own record label, Gemstone Records. He is also a member of The Celestial Stars, a gospel group consisting of his family members, who have recently released a hit single, “Get Ready”.

He continues to push boundaries and evolve his sound, cementing himself as a guiding light of modern soul.
