Larry Garner


Folks in European countries were hip to Larry Garner a long time before most blues followers in the us. The Baton Rouge guitarist experienced already toured thoroughly abroad, with two English albums to his credit, before Verve released his stunning home debut, YOU WILL NEED to Live just a little, in 1995. Rooted within the swamp blues custom indigenous to his Baton Rouge environs, Garner brings a laudable modern sensibility and witty composing abilities to his art. Inspired by regional swamp bluesmen Silas Hogan and Clarence Edwards, Garner discovered how exactly to play acoustic guitar from his uncle and several gospel-playing elders. After completing his armed service support in Korea, he came back to Baton Rouge and embarked on a part-time musical profession (he worked in a Dow chemical substance plant for nearly 2 decades until his latest pension). The English JSP label released Garner’s 1st two albums: Two times Dues and As well Blues (the second option an ironic slap at an unidentified tin-eared U.S. blues label manager who considered Garner’s demonstration tape “as well blues”). FOR YOU PERSONALLY Have to Live just a little, Garner delivers innovative originals detailing the issue of keeping “Four Vehicles Running” as well as the general pain of coping with “Another Bad Time.” He’s poised for 21st hundred years blues stardom. Following efforts consist of 1998’s Standing Area Just, 1999’s Baton Rouge, and 2000’s Once Upon the Blues.
