Chart smashers Lawson join Olly's Powderham gig
LAWSON are officially the first special guests to be confirmed to perform at the big Olly Murs outdoor concert at Kenton this summer, playing at Powderham Castle on July 7.
Lawson have made a huge impact since hitting the top five with their debut single, When She Was Mine, last May, following it up with two more chart smashes — top three UK single Taking Over Me, and radio smash Standing In The Dark which is the band's biggest selling UK single to date, firmly establishing themselves as one of the brightest new pop bands to launch in recent years.
With all the songs penned by the band themselves, drawing on real life relationships, experience and challenges, their debut album, Chapman Square, produced by Grammy winner John Shanks, also hit the top five on release in November, 2012, and the band have been steadily building up a large and dedicated following.
A formidable live presence, frontman Andy Brown, guitarist Joel Peat, drummer Adam Pitts and bass player Ryan Fletcher have gone from playing to three people in pub backrooms, to selling out four headline tours and opening for artists such as Jessie J, Will Young and Avril Lavigne.

They packed out their stage at V Festival, made appearances at the Summertime and Jingle Bell Ball, and will take their set worldwide in 2013 with shows in North America and South East Asia upcoming.
Meanwhile, Olly Murs' eagerly awaited second single from the latest album, Army of Two, was released earlier this month.
Commenting on the announcement, concert spokesman Dion Clements said: "Olly is a big enough reason to come out to Powderham Castle alone, so adding Lawson to the line-up means the whole event just got that much bigger."
