Larisa Bryski's upbringing in a small town in the Sierra Nevada Mountains instilled in her a vocal style that resonates with rare understanding when it comes to interpreting both words and music. 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 it's feet on a stage, grabs a microphone and wails.' Larisa has performed extensively all the while, sharing bills with such renowned and diverse national artists as Journey, Poe, Oleander, Modern English, Peter Frampton, The Tories, Color, Eric Martin, Butterfly Jones, Tommy Castro, and King's X. Larisa and her band take pride in combining powerful, clean vocals with thoughtful lyrics, infectious rock melodies, unmatched 3-part harmonies, and high energy stage presence. Her new CD, 'Violet', released in August of 2003, encompasses all of that and then some.
