When you think of London, the thought might conjure up images of a city encased in perpetual fog and chilly rain. But there is another “London”--and her realm is a place known for its warmth…Texas, y’all. And this particular London brings the heat…whether it be through her sizzling music or that million watt smile. For when it comes to the “Pop Pride of Texas” LONDON LAWHON…her future shines as bright as the southern sun at high noon and her voracious vocals are as powerful as a Texas twister! Unlike foggy London town, a place known for its long and rich history, this London is just 17 years of age. But make no mistake…she is already leaving her mark in this world. No newbie to music, London has been performing in and around her home base of Houston—and beyond--for several years. Her music has reverberated in such places as House of Blues Dallas, The Houston Rodeo, The Woodlands Waterway Nights, Lucky Strike LA Live in Los Angeles, Spring Board South Music Festival in Houston, The Woodlands Art Festival, Hollywood Launch Industry Showcase in California--and numerous other venues and events.

And later, I cast the video for “Locked Up” on the very first episode of the ION Indie Magazine produced independent music video show, “Jam On ION”—which is broadcast worldwide on the My Jam TV network. It was an easy decision…and here’s why…
