Troubadour for his own . . . 

. . . but foremost for others good . . .

Larry John Mc Nally 

 

"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".                       

 

LJM 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 lyrical guitar-driven songs have been covered by artists such as The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Don Henley, the Staple Singers and Aaron Neville. 

 

Larry John'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, angst, city lights, and more, all with the unique ability to create both an aural as well as visual cinematic-like impression.

 

"The Motown Song (2015)", his new version of a song made famous by Rod Stewart, is released on the compilation: 

"Independent Celebration, Vol.1" (Birdstone Records)
