5 Questions with Lil Larry
What inspires or motivates you?
What inspires me is to know that music can change the world because music changes people. Although I performed abroad when I was a kid with my father’s band, it was not until I did it as an adult that it was all about the music. I recall a performance in Germany. We didn’t speak the language but captivated the audience with song and dance. That proved to me that music is universal and I can write, sing and performance for the universe. That is what inspires and motivates me as a songwriter and recording artist.
What most inspiring thing a listener of your music told you?
“Your music takes me on a lyrical and visual journey. It takes me to another place where I just want to dance, love, and be happy!”
Does a specific state of mind or mood generate your best work?
My best state of mind is being very spontaneous. I love to pull from all aspects of life. Whether I’m in a good, bad, happy, or sad mood or in the shower, driving, sometimes even in my dreams… Song inspiration usually hits me out of nowhere. I just take it in, capture the feeling, and paint the picture with lyrics to my music.
What’s next for yourself?
I’m presently promoting my current single “Good Man” (now available on iTunes) and working with the label to secure placement of my material on TV and in movies. Also, I’m gearing up to shoot a music video and continue to gather music for either an EP or album for release in the coming months.
Anything else you’d like to say?
Soon to be released will be some new cover songs for promotional purposes. I will continue to stay focused with career goals I’ve set for myself as I enjoy this journey travelling and performing nationally and abroad. Remember this is not a goodbye but an “I’ll see you later”. I do ask that you follow me via my website and social networks at www.lillarry.com.
