Biography

Modern, yet timeless. If you had to sum up Larry g(EE)s debut EP, Weekends, those three words would be a fine start. You can hear the echoes of classic Stax sides in the punchy horns of "Yo Mama" and feel the intense romanticism of vintage Motown singles in the piercing ballad "Im Your Fool". Yet, unlike so many musicians drawing inspiration from those fertile sources, Larry isn't interested in meticulous recreation: "Im anything but a pure traditionalist or revivalist," he says. Indeed, in the era of Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, Larry g(EE) strives for something authentic and original, making a connection to eternal feelings through his music. Call it a proudly analog vision in a fully digital world.

In 2010, Larry began writing what would later become Weekends over a summer in Brooklyn, and returning to Texas to collaborate with producer Beau Bedford.  The EP showcases a strutting blend of funk, silky soul and smart pop melodies that become irresistibly lodged in your brain. Critics have called Larrys music finger-licking enlivened soul music (Pegasus News) and dared listeners to find a single thing to hate (Under the Gun). 

Larry has showcased his unique, intoxicating sound on stages from Los Angeles to New York City, with stops at South by Southwest, Vans Warped Tour, SummerFest, Suburbia Music Festival, Red Bull Sound Select Dallas & Portland Showcases, Untapped Music Festival, Center of The Universe Music Festival  and has shared the stage with an array of national artists, including Imagine Dragons, David Guetta, Erykah Badu, P. Diddy, Alabama Shakes, Ghostland Observatory, Washed Out, One Republic, Tegan & Sara, and many more.  He recently made his national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Quite simply, Weekends heralds the arrival of a phenomenal talent, gearing up for a dynamic, exciting and artistically satisfying career, one as great and indelible as the artists he admires. The EP Weekends will give listeners a jolt a burst of life-affirming, beautifully rendered music that evokes the past, even as it is firmly rooted in the present.

Lyrics

Yo Mama

Written By: Larry Gayao

Well you can hand me your heart
But you won't get to far oh no
Oh no
I've seen the best of them fall
Face on the floor
Oh no
Well come on in
Let me begin
I'm placing bets and I'm expecting to win

Yo Mama
I know she taught you right
Yo Mama
Then why you here tonight
Better run, Better run, yeah
Ooh wee you just my type
Your body dynamite
Better run, Better run, said...

Now that I've got you alone
And nobody's home
Oh no
Ooh and now she's sipping Patron
Dress on the floor
Oh no
Now is it a sin
If she's a friend
I'm placing bet's and I'm expecting to win

Yo Mama
I know she taught you right
Yo Mama
Then why you here tonight
Yo Mama
Better run, Better run, yeah
Ooh wee you just my type
Yo Mama
Your body dynamite
Yo Mama
Better run, Better run,
Yo Mama, Yo Mama said...

To the breakdown

Oh yeah

Your milkshake may bring boys to the yard
But that's not how I'm playing these cards
said....
