My name is "Slick" Willie Lawson. I am a singer, songwriter, and guitarists. I currently have my own band, “Slick Willie and The Right Cats”. I write my material and play guitar. I am a regular at festivals, clubs and events. I have recorded two CD’s that were marketed independently. I have been singing and playing all my life. My first group was a gospel quartet called "The Gates of Heaven". My family has a musical heritage. I have two siblings who have also performed professionally. My older sister is a former member of the group “Heatwave”, who recorded “Always and Forever”, and many other hit songs. I have performed many years on and off with several bands such as "Force", with John Carey, who has exploded on the contemporary jazz scene. I have been listening to singers like Sam Cooke, and others who inspire me to sing.
The song “Get a Job” is an inspiring breath of fresh air to those whose love to groove!!
