Meet Steve Lawson… Kidderminster College’s HND Lecturer
Steve is perhaps the UK’s greatest solo bass player but you need to see him live to really understand what he does. From Steve’s website:
…new-age, post-rock, ambient-jazz, solo-bass…
It’s a little tricky to pin down what he does, given that, as those hyphenated descriptions begin to tell us he’s a solo bassist who spends a lot of his time making very unbasslike noises.
He’s an ambient experimenter who likes pop tunes too much to go strictly soundscape, but is way too atmospheric to sit comfortably in the ‘instrumental rock’ category.
His electronica leanings produce some amazing hi-tech sounds, but even the beats are played live, and owe more to hip-hop than the usual sources, making the eventual hybrid of jazz, electronica, ambient, new age and ‘new acoustic’ influences infuriatingly hard to pigeonhole.
‘Steve Lawson is a brilliant musician. I’ve known about him and listened to him for many years. He may not be one of the most famous bassists but he is definitely one of the most talented’.
