The son of saxophonist Arnie Lawrence, Erik Lawrence started on the sax when he was five, later adding the flute.

An educator since the age of 18, he currently co-leads a group with his sister singer Marya Lawrence and leads Hipmotism in addition to his own trio.

Along the way he has worked with Chico Hamilton, Sonny Sharrock, Hubert Sumlin, David Amram and Henry Butler and for 20 years with Steven Bernstein in addition to artists from other fields.

On his intriguing LiveStream from Apr. 23, 2020, Erik Lawrence is heard interacting with bassist Michael Bisio (who is particularly skilled in utilizing his bow) and drummer Harvey Sorgen on a set of adventurous improvisations that succeed becaus of the close communication and fast reactions between the three skilled and creative musicians as they explore a variety of moods.
