Lawson’s main goal in all that he does is to connect with his audience, and to create songs that they will enjoy. He has a deep desire to develop music that not only urges his listeners to get up and dance, but also touches their souls and motivates them to discover their own potential. With everything he does, he aspires to be something greater than he was before, and hopes that when others listen to his music they will be inspired to do the same.
“I’m not searching for fortunate, never searching for fame. I just hope that one day you can feel what I’m saying.” –Caddylac Jones, “Chasin’ Dreams”
