Bio: Larry Pancake is slowly becoming a household name. He was Raised in Flatwoods, a small eastern Kentucky town . His style of music has been described as country/rock, saturated with musical influences from Kiss, Paul Rogers and Elvis to local artists like BRC, and Mike Murphy. He has created his own style of singing and performing that includes an extremely wide vocal range and has been reviewed as original and energetic. From childhood Larry was exposed to a variety of music. His mother was a member of The Potters Clay Singers, a gospel group who had short-lived success with a release in the early 80's. His father and sister were also musicians. When Larry was a sophomore in high school he entered the Beta Variety Show, a talent show where he received a standing ovation after winning the contest. This opened the door to music for him. After high school, Larry decided to put a band together. With a few friends and an ad in the paper, he formed what became the band 'Aftershock'. They played their first gigs at The Country Music Highway Café in Ashland, Ky for exposure and a free meal. When the crowds were getting too big for the café the local club owners soon took notice. After playing different clubs in the tri-state (Ky,Oh,Wv), they soon became a fixture at 'The 1896 Club' in Huntington Wv. He later joined 'Southern Pride' as lead singer, which became 'The Southern Pride Band' and is now know as 'Larry Pancake and the Pride' Since 2000, 'Larry Pancake and the Pride' have played a variety of venues, large and small, along with locally and nationally know recording artists. 'LP and the Pride' stay busy performing 48 weeks a year. They received success with their first single 'Out of Road'in 2003, which gained heavy air play on local radio. In the summer of 2004, recording began at Hilltop Studios in Nashville on Larry's first CD entitled 'Lonely'. The CD includes A-list session players such as Dirk Johnson, Eddie Bayers, Spady Brannon and Chip Davis, it's projected release date is December of 2004.
