Lyric writer - Collaborator - Song lover

I've always loved writing.
Anything - songs, poems - just telling stories. And I've always loved music. All kinds of music. It just took a while to put the two together.

Writing has given me a bit of an 'in' into music - working with some very gifted people who can sing, play, do melody - and who can write too.

A great world to explore - and hopefully a few decent songs along the way!

Much more to follow with Lawrence in 2019! -  but for now, here's the interview I did with Kim Laureen of Fresh Independence about 'The Joker'::

"So proud of this British gent who is an award winning lyric writer with a heart of gold, who can make you laugh out loud when you least expect it."
