This event is all ages
From a hospital ward to four sold out tours, from Youtube videos recorded in a kitchen to recording an album in LA with a Grammy Award winning producer... Lawson’s is a tale of triumph over adversity. The London-based four-piece only released their first single in 2012 but already they’ve had three Top Five hits and a Top Ten debut album, ‘Chapman Square’ .
Dinner and a Suit
In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, Dinner And A Suit has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity, and captivates with distinction.
Formed in New Jersey by cousins Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca, the trio is forging a path that reflects the band's music itself: putting the right pieces in the right places at all the right times.
Since emerging in 2009, Dinner And A Suit quickly captured attention with a captivating blend of ethereal rock and distinguished pop - leading to critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US.
The spiraling success fueled Dinner And A Suit to transplant to Nashville in late 2010, where they began work on what would become 'Since Our Departure' - their brand new full-length album.
"We left the comforts of home to pursue this dream," explains Capeci. "And that definitely comes through on this record."
To record Since Our Departure, the band split their time between Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta with producer Matt Goldman (Anberlin, Underoath), then with Tyler Orr (As Cities Burn, Copeland) at First Street Studios in Cleveland TN.
The resulting work is a range of bold anthems, layered with soaring melodies that are riveting with honesty. Throughout the album's ten towering tracks, Capeci's lush timbre weaves universal themes of forgiveness and hope, love and loss, and discovering a place in the world.
"It just poured out of us," Genca adds. "There's a lot of passion and energy on this record. It's an experience that we're sharing with the listeners in a very real way."
