Full press reviews
About the album Lawson states, “’Full Circle’ is a return to my roots, with the focus shifting to a sound that is more centered and grounded in the instrument I know best - the nylon string Spanish guitar. I was excited to create a cohesive, guitar-focused album. ‘Full Circle’ is perhaps the most accurate, pointed expression of my guitar style and approach to melody and songcraft to date."
