D’Addario Update

Hey check it out! D’Addario updated my artist profile:

I’ve been using their strings, as well as Planet Waves gear for years, and I love it! No other string has the tone and lifetime of D’Addario.

Musicians on Call

Today I’m going to be getting back involved with Musicians on Call, for the first time since I moved out of the city. I’m really excited. Musicians on Call has given me some of the most rewarding experiences in my life as a musician and it feels so good to use my music to give back to those in need in my own way.

Musicians on Call is an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals all over the country. To all of my musician friends, I urge you to get involved. visit their website: www.musiciansoncall.org and submit an application. Even if you aren’t a musician, you can join the effort as an organizer, or through donating.

To my great friend Stephen Salyers (of MOC Nashville)… I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Thank you so much for getting me involved in the amazing program. It’s something that has really changed my outlook on life, and something I’ll continue doing as long as I can.

Some songs I’m planning to play today in Brooklyn:
Originals:
“Healing Love”
“So Like Me”
“Wake Me When We Get There” (Wrote this one with Stephen Salyers!)

Covers:
“All of Me” by John Legend
“Signed Sealed Delivered”, “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder
“Free” by Zach Brown Band
and I’m sure many more. It’s all about the audience :)

Big Weekend Here!

Wow, I’m up early, heading to the gym to get ready for this weekend… 3 awesome shows, and my sister’s engagement party! It’s awesome when family is in town. Most of my family has moved around the country, and I’m really the last one in NY, so all you regular show goers may not know what happens when we get together… let’s just say we may be considered honorary Irish.

Today at 1, I’ll be playing the Irish Day festivities at The Beach House in RVC, so I learned some cool new tunes:
“Another Irish Drinking Song” by DaVinci’s Notebook
“Whiskey in The Jar” and “The Wild Rover” by the Dubliners, but I mean… Dropkick Murphys.
and of course, “Jump Around” by House of Pain.

Then I’ll be meeting the new in-laws for dinner, and heading out to Long Beach for a late night party at Biddy Mulligans 10-2 (or later!)

Sunday I’ll be partying with family for the engagement, then heading to Sunday Funday (hopefully with a few relations in tow) in Long Beach at The Beach House 4-8pm.

Some other New Songs for this weekend:
“You Got Me” by The Roots
“When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars
“We Found Love” by Rihanna
“Valerie” – The Amy Winehouse way
“Joy and Pain” – by MAZE, this one’s only if Reebs comes.
possibly that new John Legend song… we’ll see

See you out there!

Lots of New Music Up!

Hey everyone, I’ve been recording my shows a lot lately, and I’ve selected a few performances that I’ve felt are worth sharing with you to post online. I’d love it if you would “like” them, and share them with your friends and family!

Reverbnation.com/brycelarsenentertainment and Soundcloud.com/brycelarsenmusic both have lots and lots of files up now. Everything from the originals on Here’s to You, to some old Stealing Jane tunes, and of course lots of live recordings of cover songs from the shows I play every week. Soundcloud is especially great because there’s an app for your phone, it syncs with all your social media, and the audio quality is great.

Check out whichever site you like better and let me know what you think!

See you out there…

New Live EP now online!

BryceLarsen.Bandcamp.com

It’s been slow going, but I finally feel ready to share with you three of the songs from the last rockwood music hall show in June, 2013. Ill be working on more tunes over the next few months, do I’ll add them as they are finished, and post here and on Facebook so stay tuned!

I’m really proud of these three tunes, they we’re the beginning of the set, and the guys really killed it! They all feature Eddie Venegas on the trombone and fiddle, Carlos Mendes on the drums, Steve Uh on the keys and Randy Rice on the bass.

Eddie is currently touring on trombone with Marc Antony, and performing with the Sweet Plantain String Quartet. Visit him online at www.eddievenegas.com

Steve and I work together teaching music to middle schoolers, and he is also the brains of the awesome Brooklyn based jam band SideCar A GoGo. Visit him online at www.reverbnation.com/sidecaragogo

Carlos is currently the captain and central defender of the NASL champions the New York Cosmos, and as my brother in law, sometimes he has to come off the soccer field and rip it up on the drums.

Randy is the bassist for the Long Island jam band Dirty Bath Water, and is currently featured in the portuguese tv commercials for Meo!

So as you may notice, I added a few backup vocals and extra instruments to fill out the recordings… Let me know what you think guys!
