Will Lawton is a British singer-songwriter, pianist and composer. He has written and recorded six studio albums and several EPs embracing a myriad of musical genres.
During 'lockdown' 2020, this utterly bizarre time of global crisis, Will collaborated with a group of poets he had never met to write, compose and create 'Salt of the Earth, Vol. 1 (Lockdown)', a collection of original poems embedded in meditative piano and ambient soundscapes.
Will Lawton and the Alchemists are currently releasing 'Abbey House Session', a six-track, part-live album recorded at The Abbey House in Malmesbury. The album is out now on CD and vinyl with the digital release happening on 1st October 2020.
“There is something of the jazz approach at the core of the sound of Will Lawton and the Alchemists - interesting timings and intricate riffs hung on fluid, free-flowing musical structures - but there richly textured and layer music contains much more besides. Indie melodics, rock weight and progressive meanderings all add poise and power. They could be your best new find of the year” - Swindon Shuffle
“Will Lawton weaves a tapestry of live piano with a voice that speaks of love and loss, truth and lies, the whole spectrum of this painful, yet magical existence we call life.” - Ton Boon Dharma
