“His classical tone is gorgeous, his technique is impeccable, his subtle genre blending is compelling.”
~ Guitar Player Magazine

“Rollins’ pristine and masterful picking on acoustic and electric guitars is the common thread running through all his work…mesmerizing.”
~ Jazziz Magazine

Guitarist and composer Lawson Rollins has received worldwide attention through his critically-acclaimed, Billboard Top 10-selling solo albums, widespread radio airplay , eclectic collaborations with other artists from around the globe, and sensational performance videos - The Fire Cadenza, Santa Ana Wind, and Locomotion - which have been seen by millions of broadcast television and internet viewers to date, including over 7.5 million alone on Youtube.
