Lawson lead guitarist Joel Peat, and Lower Than Atlantis members Mike Duce (Guitar, Vocals), Dec Hart (Bass) and Ben Sansom (Guitar) will all be visiting Fender's Learn To Play Day in London on Saturday April 12th.
The day is an open house for anyone interested in the guitar, and in particular those thinking of taking up the instrument. Beginners will be offered a free, short introductory lesson. Fender, the world's leading guitar manufacturer, will host the event in conjunction with the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) and there will be guitar specialists and qualified tutors on hand to offer advice and answer questions.
"We are delighted that Joel from Lawson and Mike, Dec and Ben from Lower Than Atlantis will be stopping by during the day to help raise awareness of 'Learn To Play Day'. They may even hand out a few playing tips themselves!" commented Fender's Russell North.
Lawson only released their first single in 2012 but already they've had 5 Top 10 hits including 'Standing In The Dark', 'Brokenhearted' plus their most recent offering 'Juliet'. Their debut album, 'Chapman Square' went straight in to the top 5. From touring pubs of the UK, they have now had four sold out headline tours. They spent the summer of 2013 performing at Festivals including T In The Park, V and Isle of Wight and finished with a tour across America, Asia and Australasia.
Joel grew up in Mansfield, where his music teacher mum pushed him to try different instruments and his dad bombarded him with Motown records. His musical influences include John Mayer and Joe Bonamassa.
Hardcore UK rock band Lower Than Atlantis are at work on their fourth album, following the success of their acclaimed 2013 Island Records release 'Changing Tune'. Favourites of the rock festival circuit, the band undertook their biggest headline tour to date in 2013. Their Christmas single "Merry Christmas (Wherever You Are)" was a trending Twitter phenomenon and was featured on the Christmas episode of 'Made In Chelsea'.
