Forget the upbringing in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas...Larisa Bryski is no small-town girl. SAMMIE (Sacramento Music Awards) winner for Best Female Vocalist, Larisa debuted as a solo artist in 2000 with her album The Long Way, which was immediately met with rave reviews. Sacramento News and Review declared, "...Bryski projects the kind of matter-of-fact intensity that plants its feet on a stage, grabs a microphone and wails." In 2003 Larisa released her edgier, self-produced 2nd CD, "Violet." The Sacramento Bee stated, "...her voice is like Sunny Delight splashed with vodka." Toting her signature mix of classic rock inspired pop, Larisa has performed extensively all the while, sharing bills with such renowned and diverse national artists as Bad Company, Journey, Oleander, Peter Frampton, Dishwalla, Berlin, Tommy Castro, John Waite, and King's X. She has also been honored to participate in several acclaimed music festivals, from Nadine’s Wild Weekend in San Francisco to SXSW in Austin. Larisa and her band (Willy Seltzer, guitar; Tommy Armstrong-Leavitt, guitar; Andrew Houston, bass; Darrell Hale, drums) take pride in combining powerful vocals with infectious rock melodies, crunchy guitars, and classic style arena rock vocal harmonies. Plans for the near future include finishing up the fourth full-band studio album.
