It's no surprise that Seattle-based Larry Murante has a reputation as one of the finest contemporary singer songwriters to emerge from the Northwest in recent years.

His beautifully woven stories about every day folks, set to song, combine compassionate, socially conscious lyrics and a joyful, energetic folk/rock style. Jackson Brown, Lyle Lovett, Hal Ketchum and Michael McDonald are all reflected in his music. Larry is known for his soaring, mellifluous, tenor, a strong rhythmic guitar style and an engaging stage presence.

Larry Murante tours nationally, performing at folk concerts, festivals, radio interviews and house concerts.
