Most of you know I’m a music lover… I was thrilled to get a chance to have a brief chat with Mic Larry, a new cutting edge recording artist from Houston TX.
This rising musician now lives in Atlanta putting all of his energy into ensuring the voice you hear on the album is the voice you hear live. His mother, who is his greatest musical influence, exposed him to the world of music which eventually impacted the content of his songs. Mic started off playing piano and drums which taught him the importance of counting beats. Mic Larry furthered his education of music by minoring in music theory in college. While pursuing a career in computer programming, a lifestyle he considered suffocating, this ignited his true calling for music as he discovered that he was proficient in mixing computer-generated beats.

RobinLori: I had a chance to listen to some of your music. Would you consider yourself an EDM artist?
Mic Larry: No, I consider myself to be an R&B/Pop artist. Similar to the sounds Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake… they are both influences. I was in with the bands adding a soulful voice to rock based music but now I’m heading back to the original pop.
RobinLori: Tell me the story behind your heart felt song “Why”.
Mic Larry: It was actually the first song I ever wrote. At the time I didn’t know why I wrote it. I was looking for a muse and everything but realized I had to let go. My mom passed away and it hit me… I was writing it to her or she was writing it to me. It’s one of my favorite songs.
