began his music career in the early 80’s as a songwriter, penning
tunes-including a dozen top ten hits-for pop icons Glen Campbell and Frankie
Valens as well as Christian artists Sandi Patty, Michael English, Avalon, Dallas
Holm, Wayne Watson, Mark Lowry, Alicia Williamson, Sheila Walsh, Terri Gibbs, The Gaither Vocal
Band, Babbie Mason, Scott Wesley Brown, Truth, Gary McSpadden, Lulu Roman and others.
He also worked with keyboardist Michael W. Smith
and producer Joe Huffman to record two albums of his own, The Artist and Silent
Movies, which led to an extensive concert schedule over the next ten years.
Larry and wife/co-writer Lesa both earned gold records for their song “Unto Us
(Isaiah 9)” which was featured on Sandi Patty’s Grammy-winning album Another
Time, Another Place. The song was performed at the lighting ceremony for NYC’s
Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.
Larry was nominated for a Dove award for “Solid as the Rock”, a #1
single, which he co-wrote with Geoff Thurman for Michael English’s debut album.
Problems with his voice forced him off the road in the mid-90’s, but Larry
has returned to the studio to work on a new series of independent
projects, as well as composing music and creating sound effects for Getty
