Larry McCray first emerged on the international stage with his debut release on Point Blank/Virgin in 1990. Through the 1990’s and behind 4 albums on that label, he quickly ascended the hierarchy of the blues and roots world, not just as a guitarist who could slay but also as an impassioned singer who could knock out audiences with his soulful, barrel-chested vocals.
Over the past three decades of nonstop touring and recording, Larry has played and shared the stage with such blues and rock greats as BB King, Buddy Guy, Albert King, John Mayall, Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, Keb Mo, Jonny Lang, Joe Walsh, Levon Helm, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Albert Collins, and Joe Bonamassa. No stranger to the deep and endless world of the jam band universe either, Larry is beloved by and has performed with many of the greats in that world, including touring with The Allman Brothers Band, Warren Haynes, Gov’t Mule, Phil Lesh, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, and countless others.
