Chad Lawson – born Mach 26, 1975, in Morganton, North Carolina – is a classical, jazz, and new age pianist. Inspired by seeing Sha Na Na on television, he began studying the piano at the age of 5. He began composing his own material after being given a Korg M1, his first keyboard. He majored in jazz performance at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While pursuing his major, he began a career as a studio musician. He also started working as sideman, touring with artists such as Babik Reinhardt. Moving to Charlotte, North Carolina, he formed the Chad Lawson Trio and self-released a Christmas album before signing with Summit Records and releasing two more albums: Dear Dorothy: The Oz Sessions (2002) and Unforeseen (2004).

Further albums include Dark Conclusions: The Lore Variations (2016), Bach Interpreted: Piano Variations On Bach Chorales (2016), and Re:Piano (2018), which climbed to Number 5 on the Classical Albums chart.
