Larry John McNally is a legendary and internationally acclaimed American composer, guitarist and singer. His inimitable lyric art, walking hand in hand with musical feelings on the border of jazz, folk, blues, rock and r´n´b, has become a sought-after handwriting among the icons of world music. McNally's author's catalog includes hits known from great music such as Joe Cocker, Chaka Khan, The Eagles, Rod Stewart, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville, The Staple Singers, Jennifer Warnes, Leni Stern, Mavis Staples, and countless others. The work of this unique composer is thus found on multi-platinum albums and albums awarded with Grammy Awards.
Larry John McNally was born in Bangor, Maine. His rich musical career began in 1981 with the release of his first album on Columbia Records. Followed by many other albums where his authentic lyrics mix with blues-folk guitar with jazz overlaps, this charismatic frontman with a melancholic voice earned the nickname "folk Hendrix".
McNally's songs are full of poetics, passion, city lights, reflections on life, human emotions. It is therefore not surprising that, at the request of the surviving family, he became the author of lyrics to the music of Władysław Szpilman, a renowned Polish composer whose fate was portrayed in the Oscar-winning film Pianist.
McNally continues recording and touring from Tokyo through the United States to Europe. In recent years, he has also been part of McNally Waters, where he performs with Harry Waters, known to the audience on the Dark Side Of The Moon tour and The Wall, where he plays in the band of his father Roger Waters, founder Pink Floyd. With this band, Larry John McNally also played Nick Mason, drummer Pink Floyd, on his successful Saucerful Of Secrets tour in the UK this year.
