After playing in a rock band and embarking on a solo career that has spanned many genres, Lawrence Rothman has released a country album. The album is personal—it processes their battle with anorexia, and violence they experienced after a show. Lawrence says he writes music to help others.

“I don't really step up to the mic and write a song or make a record for myself, unless there's something about it that can help someone else,” Rothman says.
