biography
Lawrence EthanFrom the time I could thread a vinyl onto a turntable, I have gone to music for companionship and solace. "Band On The Run" or "Black and White" would play on the A.M. radio while I dug in the backyard on a hot L.A. summer afternoon. I’d lay on my sister’s bedroom floor and paint images in my head of rolling pastures to the driven jams of Pink Floyd’s "Animals". Got caught banging my head to "Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love" in adolescent desperation. It’s a most satisfying feeling to hear that there is someone else out there who feels what I feel, says what I never expected anyone to say, aloud.

Then there were times where there wasn’t a song on the radio or a record in the collection that would suit my mood. So I hummed something low in my chest and felt my own crude melody. After time, when that melody got loud enough to hear, I started recording it. I hope that in this collection of songs, there will be something to relate to for someone whom I’ve never met, that is looking for that one record to complement their mood or keep them company.

Hope you Enjoy the Music.

In a time where the singer/songwriter is getting more rare, Lawrence Ethan is the remedy, the void filler, by writing, playing and recording all of his own material.

Born in Hollywood, California, Lawrence Ethan grew up contemplating his Suburban desert surroundings and aspiring to become a composer. "I had a long walk home from school and I would write rock operas in my head to pass the time". He was introduced to 'Rock & Roll' at a young age through his sister in the form of Queen, Elton John, Aerosmith and Pink Floyd. Lawrence began his professional music career at the age of eighteen, sharpening pencils and scrubbing the shower for a chance to see how it all went down. While working in the studio as an engineer, he rubbed elbows with the likes of Tom Werman, and Desmond Child. Before he knew it 1991 had come and gone and he had four gold records to his name.

Inspiration for his music stems from some of the most credible facets in the music industry. Ranging from Pink Floyd to James Taylor. "I've always liked artists that seem approachable like James Taylor. You feel lucky to spend time with them, lucky that they are sharing with you. Sharing personal triumphs and tragedies. 'Yeah I was lost too, but it's ok.'"

Lawrence's debut album Rock Paper Scissors is a diverse group of songs ranging from pop to rock to all things in between. The first single is called 'Forevermore', a song about going to hell and back with love, giving up on love, and then finding it again. "Just when you think there is no such thing as 'true love', you get blind sided and there's nothing you can do. You think you've seen it all, you think you're jaded, your heart is dead, and bam! you're in love. It's a beautiful thing."

'Wasted', an ode to the pop in pop/rock, is a song about being wrapped up in a lifestyle, letting time pass by, not realizing it until after the fact and learning to be ok with it.

Rock Paper Scissors combines pop, rock, and country elements. The Meaning behind the title comes from envisioning rock, paper, and scissor's as diverse individual elements that in the context of the traditional game illustrate a perfect balance, no element having more or less power than the others. "There's beauty in it's simplicity."
