"Larry John McNally's songs have the plainspoken
eloquence of a Raymond Carver story with fluid
guitar work that recalls Hendrix."
Larry John McNally's career began in 1981 with the release
of his debut album on Columbia Records. Perhaps best
categorized as a "Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist",
he calls his blend of literary lyrics and blues/folk/jazz
guitar style, "Folk-Hendrix". He continues
to record and perform both as a solo artist and with
his trio in clubs and concert venues from Tokyo to Kokomo.
He is well-known in many circles as a songwriter's songwriter.
His moody, guitar-driven, lyrical, thoughtful songs
have been covered by artists from Don Henley (who rarely
songs) to Bonnie Raitt, Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Jennifer
Warnes, the Staple Singers and Aaron Neville. LJM's
own recordings are coveted treasures among his devotees
and delightful finds for those who happen upon them
for the first time.
They are filled with songs of passion, coming of age,
angst, wonder, city lights, and more, all with the unique
ability to create both an aural as well as visual cinematic-like
