Her debut single record, Infinite Possibilities, premiered by 550 Music in Feb 2000. Larrieux teamed with crooner Glenn Lewis and documented “What’s Arrive Over Me?” for the Barbershop soundtrack, released in 2002. Both reunited a season later and made an appearance on Stanley Clarke’s 1, 2, towards the Bass record with their edition of “Where May be the Like,” a efficiency that gained them a Grammy nomination.
