Singer songwriter Larry g(EE) recently debuted his EP, entitled Weekends. Released on December 10, Weekends showcases four unique songs from Larry g(EE) that highlight his strengths as a singer and his creativity as a songwriter. This Texas native brings a soulful charm to his music, along with a powerful band full of drums, piano, guitar, and a unique brass section that takes his songs to new heights.
His single entitled â€śYo Mamaâ€ť is a great introduction into Larry g(EE)â€™s signature style. This upbeat tempo track tells a story of a woman who has caught his attention. The powerful soul in his voice is something thatâ€™s not easy to produce, but he does it brilliantly. Backed by a talented band, this song is heavy with brass instruments which brings a musical element not normally heard in current mainstream music.
Aside from the musicality of the song, Larry g(EE)â€™s lyrics are well written and the hook is easy to sing along to.Â The catchy bridge is a playful take off of Kelisâ€™ popular hip hop song â€śMilkshakeâ€ť, as he sings â€śYour milkshake may bring boys to the yard but thatâ€™s not how Iâ€™m playing these cards.â€ť
The music video for â€śYo Mamaâ€ť highlights the distinct style and nature of the music. Dressed in suits, Larry and his band bring a retro flavor into the mix as he strays away from the often overdone melodies in current pop music. The natural soul in his voice comes out when he sings throughout the hook of â€śYo Mamaâ€ť and his individual sound helps him stand out from other current singer songwriters.
â€śIâ€™m Your Foolâ€ť is another song that continues to show the promise in Larry g(EE)â€™s music. Starting off with a piano intro that builds up and continues throughout the song, â€śIâ€™m Your Foolâ€ť brings an air of style heard from decades ago. Like his other songs, there is a presence of horns that is something special, and not widely heard in music today. He sings of past relationship regrets in this track.
â€śNow I know Iâ€™ve done a million things to push you away, and I canâ€™t take back the games you never wanted to play.â€ť The harmonies in this song help Larryâ€™s voice shine as background singers pay homage to soul music of the past. â€śIâ€™m Your Foolâ€ť is a more emotional song that shows the artist’s creativity. His voice is a bit more subdued than in other songs, but doesnâ€™t take away from his special blend of talent.
Weekends continues on with â€śCamera Phone,â€ť a fun song that depicts a man trying to pick up a girl that has caught his eye. â€śAnd my mindâ€™s still buzzing from the night before,â€ť Larry g(EE) sings, as he sees the woman he is fixated on. The retro feel of the song mixes with the contemporary vibe of the camera phone, while his playful lyrics are heard throughout.
â€śIâ€™m thinking you and me tonight, tell your friends they can come on by, itâ€™ll be alright,â€ť he sings. Itâ€™s an energizing song that shows the singerâ€™s versatility in his vocal strengths, as he goes from soft tones in the verses to the more soulful and powerful hook.
â€śGameâ€ť rounds out the group of distinct songs on Weekends. This fast paced song brings forward emotions of stepping away from a relationship where games are being played. His voice is continues to shine soulfully as he sings of his fed up attitude. A strong piano accompaniment is heard throughout and marries wonderfully with the horn section. The song ends off solely with instrumental music and highlights how talented his band is.
Larry g(EE)â€™s signature blend of contemporary lyrics and soul inspired music heard throughout Weekends is both creatively and expertly done. What he has uniquely done with music makes him hard to compare to other current artists, because his talent helps him positively stand away from the crowd.
