After almost twenty years of writing, recording, producing music and fronting such bands as The Punters and The 8 Track Favourites Larry Foley has emerged to put his stamp on a body of work which is quickly establishing him as a solo performer.

His new, self-produced recording "Free & Easy" is a reflection of his roots and his love of a good song.

Here is how Larry describes the process in recording this CD:
    "One real nice day last fall (2011), I put on the tape of my grandfather singing. It's not always easy to do. Here I was, just turned forty, with a boy of my own, sitting in my own recording studio. Towards the end of side B, “Sweet Forget Me Not” appears in the speakers and as I absorb the beauty of his rendition, the tape cuts off. I was again poisoned. Then I figured, I'd just fix it. I managed to get his voice into my computer and set to accompanying him and making a duet of the unfinished work.

    That was the beginning of this recording. I added the odd song that was a favourite around our house and stuff that I just heard and liked that seemed to fit. I heard “Medals Galore” (as I call it) at the St. Patrick's concert in St. Mary's (where my wife is from). Dad always like “McClory”. My Aunt Rose-Marie always sings the “Port Royal Song” at family gatherings.

    My cousin Ger in Grand Falls gave me a tape of Wat Brien, that's where “Free and Easy” came from. I wrote “Spyglass” in the midst of making this recording after a conversation with my father. That's how it came together. So it is very much a collection of folk songs with personal connections. I'm sure many people have similar ties to some of these songs. "
