Bio

Kidnapped at age 16 by my own stage mother to Japan, I met Jon Andersen of YES who wanted to produce songs on me. When the Japanese labels got wind of this, I was signed as a new singer-songwriter on the spot. 3 albums later,
& having had a taste of being BIG IN JAPAN, I wanted to come back to the States and sing in English and break the stereotype of the Asian-American artist. I secretly escaped Tokyo against everyone's wishes to LA with nothing but sheer determination and two Les Pauls' under my arms. Immediately I was humbled into taking my first normal job as a waitress all the while searching for "MY SOUND". I've worked with many producers and writers ala: Don Was, Trevor Horn, Richard Perry, etc
& I've tried every style music to finally come full circle in doing what i do best. Melodic Rock with thought provoking lyrics and integrity. I've been through hell and back and wouldn't trade my experiences for the world for I have so much to say and am fiercely compelled to share my music on a mass level. There is a movie being written about my life story right now and it's called OUTSIDE IN.
Music Connection Magazine calls ANZU " A stand-out vocalist with a sexy center...a powerful performer with a fiery live performance " "Combining interesting instrumentation with vibrant vocals and hook-laden choruses, Anzu presents tightly woven rock numbers that dip and weave through dramatic high's and low's....they contain enough musicianship and standout vocal skill to set them apart...this quality combination with Lawson's intimate lyrics gives this band a proffesional edge"
Voted 2004 & 2005's Top 100 Best unsigned Artists!!
