Our old friend Larry g(EE), the Dallas soul/pop/R&B singer whom we featured a few years ago on the Warped Tour OurStage stage, as well as the OurStage spotlight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,, has announced that he’s signed with up and coming independent label DEFDISCO. The label, based in both Dallas and Sheffield UK, is distributed by ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance) / Warner Music.
Larry g(EE)’s last release was the single “Don’t Talk,” released one year ago, produced by DJ A1 and featuring new labelmate Sam Lao. A new release, his debut for DEFDISCO, is expected in 2017.

Larry g(EE), who earned the opportunity on OurStage to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in 2012, has signed a publishing deal with the well-respected and fast-growing Primary Wave.
Primary Wave will help Larry (last name Gayao) and his band to promote their music, particularly via licensing opportunities.

He told Dallas Morning News, The exposure that I think [Primary Wave] will bring not just to myself as an artist, but to the music is going to be incredible and help me take steps to releasing this new material.
To that end, Gayao also announced a new album due in 2015. Join him behind the scenes at Kimmel and listen to his breakout single “Yo Mama” below.
SXSW has announced a new batch of performers, including Chance The Rapper, Future, and Kurt Vile. The acts join the likes of Dave Hause and MC Lars, along with OurStage artists Larry g(EE) and Bronze Radio Return. If the current lineup isn’t enticing enough, it seems the festival has plans to announce a few more additions (perhaps more heavyweights?) closer to the festival’s launch.
You can check out a day-by-day schedule of the 2,000 + acts that will perform between March 11-17th right here and check out the latest additions to the lineup below.
OS Member Larry g(EE) has become the latest rising talent to be featured on the popular Daytrotter webseries.
Popping up online a few weeks after Larry and his band made a trek to the company’s HQ, Daytrotter’s latest session with our favorite Texas native offers fans four stripped-down performances. Included in the mix of songs are singles “Yo Mama” and “I’m Your Fool,” as well as rare gems “I Don’t Know” and “I Think I Love You.” Membership is required for downloads, but those who signup today should be able to experience Larry’s sound for free.
Discussing recording with Larry, a team member at Daytrotter wrote, “For the record, Larry g(EE) and his band were sweating their FACES off during the taping of this session a few weeks ago. It gets HOT up in the Horseshack during the summer months. Larry g(EE)’s music is meant for heat and humidity. It’s meant for getting sexy. You cannot fight the urge to want to get hot and sweaty with all of these Texans. Let’s all take our shirts off, right now!”
In the past six months, OurStage, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the OurStage community of fans have given three talented, unsigned artists the incredible, career-changing chance to show what they’ve got by featuring them as the musical guest on Kimmel’s hit late-night show. Now go backstage with the artists in these exclusive clips, as they tell their stories and prepare for their moment in the national television spotlight.
