“don't think, just do it”
— Lawn to self
Spanning influences such as downtempo Trip/hop, R&B, electronica, jazz and conscious music, iamLawn is the project of New Zealand-born artist Shannon Lawn. She began the project in 2017 while living in a community of artists in Coimbra, Portugal -- which included staging various experimental shows around central Portugal -- which ultimately led to her performing in various festivals such as Freekuency and Urban Jungle and flying to Las Vegas to work with Georgia-Anne Muldrow on her recently released debut album. Her music is deep, designed to direct you inside and transform you in love and light.
''If Erykah Badu, Björk, Amy Winehouse, Kimbra and Portishead (the whole band formation from 1997) all made love in this giant orgy until a musical baby was born and gave that baby a Valium, that baby would be... iamLawn''
''I love music, but The WAY I move through life is my true artwork.
Music allows me to share my joy and love with my Earth family. More than anything, I want to connect you to yourself, to take you inside and to allow you a glimpse into the infinite love that we come from, that is your birthright to know''
