Charlottetown, PEI’s Lawrence Maxwell officially enters the conversation on June 29, 2018 with his debut release, Not Your Outlaw. Recorded and mixed at The Hill Sound Studio with Adam Gallant, this hippie-country album combines the vulnerability of raw performance with the strength of high production value. Although rooted in country, rock and folk, Lawrence Maxwell’s lyrics and instrumentals elude labeling.
While stationed at CFB Halifax, Lawrence Maxwell purchased his first acoustic guitar. Upon leaving the navy he moved back home to Prince Edward Island to see if the world would slow down—it didn’t. It was then that Maxwell began to make sense of his experiences, spending many days and nights walking in the woods, tuning into nature’s rhythms, and conceiving songs.
Not Your Outlaw will debut on June 29 with a release show at Fishbone’s Oyster Bar in Charlottetown. The album features musicians Brandon Hood, Justyn Young, Josh Langille, Sam Langille, Jenni Roberge, Luke Pound, Jon Gallant and Rowen Gallant.
