Bio: Alternative Rock Theatre. A unique blend of art rock, jazz, electronica and psychedelia that relies heavily on mood and textures to propel thought-provoking lyrics into the deep recesses of your consciousness. It's also the creative output of a certifiable madman, albeit one with something to say... See Full Bio

More Info


“Howard Lawrence is one of a kind in the indie music scene. Both his first album, The Enemy Inside, and the new one, Running After Midnight, touch on a number of genres with very appealing results. On Running After Midnight Lawrence ups his game to reveal a dark, brooding yet highly entertaining musical tale. Chronicling a damaged war veteran through his substance abuse issues and various trials and tribulations, we are presented with a concept album of sorts. The music is a robust, fragrant, trippy musical stew with flavors of prog and pastels of electronica. Vocally Howard Lawrence reminds me of latter day Ian Anderson. It is difficult to single out individual songs to highlight, as you will certainly be playing Running After Midnight from start to finish and pressing repeat. This is an album that has great depth in the sonic palette. Check out Howard Lawrence folks and buy his stellar albums, The Enemy Inside and Running After Midnight. Highly recommended!”

    Absorbing the brilliant instrumental demo 'Megalomania', from the forthcoming album Shock Therapy. I'm dreaming of the day when I can hear the entire trilogy of HL albums.
