You can hear the echoes of Stax sides in tehe punchy horns of "Yo Mama" and feel the intense romanticism of vintage Motown singles in the piercing ballad "I'm Your Fool." Yet, unlike so many musicians drawing inspiration from those fertile sources, Larry isn't interested in meticulous recreation. Indeed, in the era of Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, Larry gEE 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. The Dallas-based singer-songwriter first made waves and earned critical acclaim as a fiery frontman for rock band Otis, but felt the need for a creative rejuvenation, something far funkier and more soulful. in 2010, Larry struck out writing what would become "Weekends" over a summer in Brooklyn, and returning to Texas to collaborate with producer Beau Bedford. The four-track "Weekends" was released in December 2011.
