Biography

At the core of Tin Cup Gypsy you’ll find a fusion of acoustic Folk, Rock, Jazz, and Bluegrass with earthy lyrics and rich melodies that captures the essence of their Roots-rock genre. By featuring a variety of instruments such as Mandolin, Violin, Concertina, Acoustic Guitar, Percussion, Bass, and three-part Harmonies, the group’s unique blend attracts a diverse group of listeners.

This grass-roots trio weaves a fresh sound with the classic groundbreaking styles of the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Nickel Creek, and rocker-diva Bonnie Raitt. Although in their early twenties, the members of Tin Cup Gypsy have collected a wealth of experiences that has far exceeded their time.

Collectively they have worked as musicians for multi-platinum recording artists such as Sarah Evans, Maroon 5, Lorrie Morgan and Josh Turner as well as Steve Holy, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Justin Unger (of Across the Sky). In addition to their live performances, Jonathan, Jordan, and Cassandra Lawson have appeared on several national programs including; The Martha Stewart Show, The View, Good Morning America, Today, CMTs Cross-Country, Grand Ole Opry Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cassandra and Jordan have also played key roles in music videos for Bon Jovi, Trisha Yearwood, Blake Shelton, Montgomery Gentry, Josh Turner, Danielle Peck, and Provident Recording artist Leeland.

While these young guns from the deserts of Arizona took Nashville by storm, in a few short months the trio quickly gained the interest of several regional markets in Missouri, Arkansas, California, and their native Arizona and show no sign of slowing down. Accomplished as they may be, live performance lies at the heart of their résumé and the three wayfaring musicians bring in a new level of fresh talent with a current of musical gusto and magnetic presence.

Lyrics

Battle Scars

Written By: Jonathan Lawson

When the smoke clears
After a holy crusade of hearts
Where we crossed our swords together
In love and war
It appears
That maybe we've torn our love apart
And now we're bruised and battered
And running for the door

But the battle scars are worth it
The battles scars remind us we're alive
The battle scars are legends
Of guts and glory destined to survive
For a love as strong as ours
We can mend each others
Battle Scars

When the dust clears
People will see our battle field
They'll say "leave your wounded heart for someone new"
But oh my dear
After our crimson scars have healed
They'll see my wounded heart
Only beats for you

Sticks and stones break skin and bones - but love is torn apart
By reckless lies and wandering eyes
