In 2010, Nick Lawrence had radio success in Texas and in May 2014 he released a “Live In Concert” DVD & CD which includes three studio tracks. One of the three is now a fan favorite, “Roughneck”, an ode to the fast growing Texas oil boom, and “Dreamer”, a ballad that describes the struggles and hardships of the music industry.
Nick Lawrence music can be best described as Texas country music with a twist of southern & alternative rock. Straight out of Helotes, TX, Nick Lawrence began his career at 12 years old playing drums and singing in the sixth grade. He later went on to play lead guitar in his father’s band professionally in 1996 at fourteen. It was then where he began crafting his own distinctive style and sound going on his own in 2004.
Nick released “Heartbroke Rodeo”, his very first CD back in 2000. It sold over 2,500 units in its first month and received spins on radio stations like KJ97, KKYX, & Rebel Radio in and around the San Antonio area. In 2005, Lawrence dove into the Texas Country scene with his self titled release, “Nick Lawrence”. This was the first time his originals like Bluebonnet Highway & the song “Detour Left” which featured the legendary Flaco Jimenez received worldwide airplay. Detour Left was number one for seven weeks in Italy, The Netherlands, and in Australia. The ’08 Nick Lawrence Band, “Livin’ It Up, Drinkin’ ‘Em Down” album, awarded Nick a distribution deal which has lead to thousands of downloads on the worldwide internet. It blends the musical styles of traditional & contemporary country, swing, rockabilly and alternative.
Singing about real life experiences that fans can relate to, Nick Lawrence original music reveals everything from heartache, driving down to Mexico with the boy’s, falling in love, & loud rowdy bars.
After thousands of show’s playing all over the lone star state and beyond, he has truly developed himself into a remarkable performer with a passionate and energetic show. Nick Lawrence and his band are a party pleaser and continue to rock the audience night after night.
Even though the heart and soul of this artist will always belong to his original songs and Americana based dance halls and venues, he still very much enjoys performing his favorite covers. Whether he is on his own with just his acoustic or with his full band, Nick Lawrence has one goal. That goal is to please and ensure every employer and music lover he encounters with respect, and skilled performing excellence.
