Steve Lawson - SoloBassSteve

by Music Tech Fest | MTF Podcast

Steve Lawson creates music that he describes as “tricky to pin down”…

He’s an ambient experimenter with something of a pop sensibility, creating a strange hybrid of jazz, electronica, ambient, new age, hip hop and ‘new acoustic’ influences - or as his website has it: “the soundtrack to the day you wish you’d had”.

Technology is central to that artistic journey - not just in terms of the gear he uses, but also the way in which he connects with his audience and distributes his music. Steve has spent much of his professional life explaining how and why he makes much of his living playing entirely improvised music on the bass by himself in front of an audience and releasing the results.

This conversation captures and condenses those ideas.
