After supporting tours from The Wanted, Avril Lavigne and Will Young, up and coming Brit band Lawson are to perform an exclusive set at Newcastle College on 27 September.
Signed to Polydor and with a rapidly growing fan base, the four band members will play their own brand of guitar-edged pop at the college’s Performance Academy to an exclusive crowd of 200 lucky competition winners.
Lawson consists of Andy Brown, Adam Pitts, Joel Peat and Ryan Fletcher, originally from Liverpool, Brighton, Nottingham and Chesterfield respectively. The band is based in London.
The band’s frontman, Andy Brown, brought the band together and gained initial success through putting songs on YouTube to get their name out there. Lawson now has a legion of loyal fans across the UK and will release their third single ‘Standing in the Dark’ on 14 October, ahead of their debut album ‘Chapman Square’ on 22 October.
Newcastle College's £21m Performance Academy has established itself as the UK's leading training centre for music, performing arts and media and has produced two former X Factor winners Joe McElderry and Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards.
Last year the Performance Academy also hosted a special event for X Factor favourites JLS when the group visited the college to meet fans.
