The Soulful Poet
Experience the captivating, creative sounds of Vocalist / Spoken Word Artist, LariÃ¨. LariÃ¨'s recently released album, "Poetic Love" is, indeed, soothing to the soul. LariÃ¨ Donaile Edwards Jr. was born in Richmond, Virginia. Inspired by his musician father and his love of classic gospel and Rhythm & Blues, he began his love affair with music at the age of seven while honing his craft in school and church choirs. By the time he was nine years old, LariÃ¨ was already writing and arranging songs and poetry; and he performed in numerous talent shows throughout his grade school years.
LariÃ¨ studied Music and Broadcast Communications at Norfolk State University, in Norfolk Virginia, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education. During his college years, and to the present, he has performed at countless venues throughout the mid-Atlantic region, to include the 'Urban Independent Music Awards' and the popular Cada Vez Night Club in Washington D.C.
By weaving a blend of Rhythm and Blues, neo-Soul, Hip-Hop and Spoken Word into his music, LariÃ¨'s mission is to bridge the gap between all generations to come. In his own words: "Music is the air that I breathe; as vivid as the tapestry of colors I see in the majesty of Mother Nature. So come along and take this journey with me to a place where Music will never cease..." LariÃ¨
