Larry Vannatta is a born and raised Albertan and comes from a musical background that he gives full credit to to his mom.
“When I started my first band Straight Clean & Simple, the best musician I could find was my mom, who ended up playing piano in my band for 18 years.
Not too many mother / son bands that I can recall”.
Since those early beginnings Larry Vannatta has taken those strong family values, experience and added them along with his song writing skills and musical friends.
He has gained many friendships with fellow musicians, peers and artistes over the years and employs these musical friends in his band.
“I am really lucky to get to do what I love to do. Write songs, play music with such great musicians and the best part is we are all family and friends”.
