Larry Burnett

As a 16-year-old in his father’s home in Ventura, California, Larry Burnett wrote his first song. 10 years later, “Cinderella” (“one of the most frighteningly beautiful love song ever made”, said one reviewer) was dominating the airwaves around the world as a single release from the debut album from Firefall. Fans were screaming their recognition at the distinctive opening hook of the song that began every Firefall performance for the next 9 years.

For a band that could have become famous for only a few shallow love songs, Larry Burnett’s songs and singing added a diversity and edginess, as well as an irony in his own observations in affairs of the heart, which broadened the band’s fan base and life span.

Firefall concerts, heavily laden with Burnett’s songs, betrayed the innocence portrayed by the lighter side represented by his songwriting counterpart, Rick Roberts.

Having composed and sung lead on half of the songs that the band recorded, Larry Burnett demonstrated formidable talent and insight into the minds and hearts of millions of music lovers.

The songs of Firefall and Larry Burnett have been cited as major influences in the lives and music of such artists as Garth Brooks and Travis Tritt.

The demise of the band in no way affected Larry’s life as a singer/songwriter. Having spent 10 years in the presence of songwriting peers like Michael McDonald, Stephen Stills, Billy Joel and others of the era, Larry Burnett has continued to develop and mature as a songwriter, combining his newly acquired skills and disciplines with his unique spin on life and relationships.

Larry Burnett has expanded his catalog along the way. He is releasing a new, limited edition CD in August 2004, with more to follow.

Larry is currently performing live, just he and his guitar, at selected venues around the US, presenting a few of the Firefall favorites (Cinderella, Just remember I Love You) alongside a predominance of newer, unheard compositions.
