Larry John McNally, a talented artist and songwriter…

Larry John McNally wrote 2 songs (“A Man In A Man’s World” and “Sleep On It”) for Chaka Kahn’s solo debut album in 1978. In 1979 Larry signed with ARC Records, which is managed by Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. He started recording session for his solo debut album in 1980 and at the same time he became well-known as a talented songwriter because many famous artists such as Average White Band, Terri DeSario had recorded his composition. He completed his solo debut album “Larry John McNally” and released in 1981.

Soon After his debut album had released, ARC Records stopped their business and we had waited for his 2nd album “Fade To Black” until 1986, which was released under ATCO Records and produced by Gary Katz and himself. And furthermore it took 9 years before his 3rd album “”VIBROLUX” has been released under Pioneer LDC, Japan.
