Originally from Guelph, Lawr moved to Sudbury, where he hosted a music show on CKLU-FM. In 2005, Kate Maki, Lawr, Ryan Bishops, Ruth Minnikin and Dale Murray participated in two national concert tours, A Midautumn Night's Dream and A Midwinter Night's Dream, which were reportedly inspired by Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue.
