This song was written by Will in June 2016 and was inspired by a blackbird that spent the spring singing "I didn't do it" from a tree outside Wills bedroom window. 'Dharma' means 'the eternal law of the cosmos, inherent in the very nature of things'.
Musicians featured on this track are:
Will Lawton (piano, vocals, hang, harmonium)
Weasel Howlett (cymbals, backing vocals)
Harki Popli (tabla)

“Beautifully chilled….” (Hamish Baird)
I am a singer-songwriter, composer and pianist from the West Country, England.
I am currently recording my first solo album with drummer, Weasel Howlett. This album is due for completion in 2017 and will be followed by a release tour. I have written and recorded three previous studio albums over the last 15 years with The Home Fires, Orangutan and Brontosaurus – all of which are available to listen to and buy through this site.
Music has been a part of my life ever since I remember and like most singer/songwriters, my tunes simply reflect me and my life. I am passionate about playing honest music on real pianos and I feel completely at home whether I’m sat behind a battered, barely-in-tune upright, or a Bosendorfer grand.
I am currently playing lives shows to fine-tune new material ahead of recording. There’s a good energy in the new music and I look forward to seeing you at a gig very soon. I hope you enjoy exploring this site.
