When So Late Becomes So Early
ABOUT 'WHEN SO LATE' Singer-songwriter Lawrence Chang's solo debut album gradually disarms while imploring, explaining, and reproving. Emotive and expressive vocals share heart-felt lyrics about the working life, filial unease, challenges of faith, and love in the modern world. Story-telling at times, poetic at others, the songs are always thoughtful and always grounded with something stirring to say. 'Chang is remarkably poetic for an MIT graduate with a degree in electrical engineering...' -- Jennifer Layton, indie-music.com. Lawrence draws from his eclectic background as an award-winning playwright, liturgical guitarist, and high-tech engineer to create a truly unique album. 'When So Late Becomes So Early' resonates with a sincerity and naturalness characteristic of his poems, plays, and acoustic guitar. Lawrence's musical influences include Dave Matthews, Eric Clapton, the Cure, U2, Counting Crows, Jars of Clay, Arizona's Rick and Steve, and fingerstyle guitarists like Preston Reed, Laurence Juber, and Peter Finger.
