Larry is a classically trained pianist, who began piano lessons at 5 years old. He started his first band at 13 with his sister and some neighborhood kids. At 15, Larry was playing small concerts with his Christian rock band "Solid Faith" at various youth camps, rallies, and churches in Southern Ca. Larry graduated from high school in 1981 and went on to study piano composition at the University of Redlands. By the time Larry was 20 he was playing the LA and OC club circuits with a variety of bands.
And like so many musicians' stories go...Larry dropped out of college and pursued his music career full time. In the mid-80's, Larry became involved in a small project studio with a friend, and gained valuable recording studio experience, particularly as a studio musician. Larry has performed as a session keyboardist and/or pre-production midi programmer for a variety of record labels and artists including Sony Music, Suicidal Tendencies and Joe Satriani.

Many thanks for your review of my instrumental "Shiver" -- I'll work on that melody!

Thanks so much for the thoughtful review of my song "The Starry Night". It means a lot coming from such a talented player. I have a question. Do you ever record keyboard tracks for other artist's songs? Being primarily a guitar player, I'm always looking for great instrumentalists to lay down backing tracks. Of course I realize compensation would be required. Anyway, thanks again for the kind review and let me know if you would ever consider the recording thing.

Best Regards,


P.S. I really enjoyed listening to your songs. Very beautiful.

Howdy Pardner!

Larry, thanks for the kind review of my composition, "Beijing Dawn". You are the first to review it. Glad you dig the Asian vibe with the urban accents. It was inspired by Beijing as it wakes up from a dead sleep to getting on their donkeys and getting busy. The song is included on my CD "Peak To Peak"..... stop by and listen to more if you like.
