BIOGRAPHY

MY NAME IS LARRY POWELL I WAS BORN IN A SMALL TOWN CALLED GREENVILLE NORTH CAROLINA. I GREW UP IN A FAMILY THAT LOVED MUSIC. MY MOM PLAYED GUITAR, PIANO, AND SHE PERFORMED IN STAGE PLAYS. MY DAD WAS MORE ACROBATIC AND ATHLETIC. HE WAS A GOOD BASEBALL PLAYER FROM MY UNDERSTANDING.

I GOT MY TALENTS FROM THEM BOTH. MY MUSICAL TALENTS COME FROM MY MOM (R.I.P.) AND MY SPORTS TALENTS FROM MY DAD. I PLAYED BASEBALL, FOOTBALL, AND I WRESTLED IN HIGH SCHOOL. HOWEVER, MY MUSICAL TALENTS WOULD SURPASS ALL MY OTHER SPORTS INTERESTS.

I GREW UP LISTENING AND WATCHING ELVIS PRESLEY MOVIES AND I WANTED SO MUCH TO BE LIKE HIM WHEN IT CAME TO MAKING THE GIRLS HAPPY BY SINGING TO, OR DANCING FOR THEM. THEN THIS LITTLE BALL OF ENERGY CAME OUT TO MAKE HIS PRESENCE KNOWN. HIS NAME: MICHAEL J. JACKSON THAT WAS ALL I NEEDED TO CAP MY INSPIRATION IN THE MUSIC WORLD. AT THE AGE OF 9 I KNEW THAT IS WHAT I WAS DESTINED TO DO.  I PLAYED KEYBOADS IN A LOCAL BAND WITH MY BROTHER WILLIAM (SINGER). WE GOT TOGETHER WITH JOE POWELL (BASS GUITARIST) AND KENNETH DAWSON (LEAD AND RHYTHM ) GUITAR. THIS WAS ALL DURING MY LAST TWO YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL AND A YEAR AFTER.

I LATER ENLISTED INTO THE US ARMY IN 1979. I PLAYED IN QUITE A FEW BANDS WHILE IN THE ARMY.

THEN AFTER SEPARATING FROM THE ARMED FORCES I PLAYED IN MORE BANDS. ONE IN MARYLAND 1985 WITH EDDIE LOVELY (DRUMMER) AND WENDELL MANSWELL (BASSIST) I LATER MOVED BACK TO HOME AND HELPED MANAGE A RECORDING STUDIO IN GREENVILLE N.C. CALLED D&S SOUND STUDIOS OWN AND OPERATED BY BUTCH DREWERY AND BILLY SAVAGE. I LATER MOVED TO S.C. AND PLAYED IN A GROUP CALLED ATLANTIC FORCE WITH SAM CULBREATH. THEN I MOVED TO NEW YORK AND PLAYED IN A COUPLE OF GROUPS  WITH NAZRUS HALSEY. WE RECORDED IN THAT 4 YEAR PERIOD, A POLITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT CALLED WAVE HAMPTON. THEN I MOVED TO ATLANTA GEORGIA, GRADUATED FROM THE ART INSTITUTE OF ATLANTA, AFTER BEING ENCOURAGED BY MY BEST FRIEND SAM CULBREATH TO MOVE HERE. WE BOTH BEEN HERE EVERY SINCE. PRODUCING AND RECORDING MUSIC AS WE ALWAYS LOVED DOING.
