Stay - EP
Released at a time of global uncertainty, Chad Lawson’s EP of five brand-new tracks for solo piano is a plea to us to stop, breathe, and reflect. Lawson’s music is uncomplicated yet affecting, the opening track, “Stay,” almost childlike in its simplicity—yet it speaks to the many of us who are searching for inner peace. The gently rocking “One Day You Finally Knew” is a testament to Lawson’s melodic gift, while the ingenious “Across the Distance” brings a message of hope, its hypnotic chiming stretching seemingly over time and space. Warmth and comfort return with “Rain,” before Lawson brings his EP full circle with the beautiful, languid “She Dreams of Time.” Each track on this version is also accompanied by an equally mesmerizing video, three of which—“Across the Distance,” “Rain,” and “She Dreams of Time”—are exclusive to Apple Music.
