As a testimony to his talent,
on his first album, "Lost In Bluedreams", Larry had the honor of the Jordanaires & Millie Kirkham for
backup vocalists and Tareva Henderson joined him as his duet partner on
"(He Says) I'm Sorry". Larry told me, "When I wrote that song, exactly 4
years almost to the day, I knew immediately that I wanted Tareva to do the duet with me
and was thrilled that she was in town & available to do it.... we cut it on her
birthday." Larry also wrote 9 out of the 10 songs on this album, the exception being
"Lovesick Blues" which he renders with style and quality. Rather than
trying to sound like the late Hank Williams Sr., Larry stands by the tradition of the song
with his own rich stylings and does it proud. The title cut, "Lost In Blue
Dreams", sounds as though Larry were a mixture of Elvis, Steve Kolander and Narvel Felts. Adding the wonderful backing of
the Jordanaires enhances the "illusion" but the simple fact is, Larry is no
illusion. He is a gifted and talented artist who combines the best of all musical artist
and genres that have influenced him into his own unique brand of magic.
Larry hails from Michigan, his home is in Nashville,
but he's been appearing steadily in Las Vegas for most of this year. Larry said,
"I've been here a better part of this year, though my home is in Nashville. Vegas has
been so good to me thus far, doing a lot of TV and Radio, etc. and just having a good time
here. I do look forward to going home every now & then though.
From 2Steppin' Revue by Laurie Paulik:
"Larry Cole's rich vocals and musical influences are powerfully presented in his
debut album. His youthful zest and charismatic stage presence engage his audiences. He has
carved out a place in modern country music that few others have attempted and this alone
should ensure that we'll continue to hear from him in the future."
Well said Laurie! All I can add to that is that you
HAVE to add Larry's CD to your collection!
