Recently inducted into the Colorado R&R Hall of Fame, Firefall’s Larry Burnett is one of the fortunate few who have the ability to look at the world around him and reflect it back to others in song.
At 23 years old, with many songs in his arsenal, he joined a group of fellow musicians and formed Firefall. The band, including Burnett, developed a pop-rock-midwest country sound, in the tradition of Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Byrds and the Eagles’ early recordings. Touring with such acts as The Band, Doobie Brothers and Fleetwood Mac, “Firefall” became Atlantic’s fastest album to sell 500,000 copies and eventually sold six multi-platinum albums.
Larry Burnett’s most recent release as a solo artist is 2009’s “Guitars and Vocals.” The CD also features Burnett’s musical partner Don Chapman on backing vocals and accompanying guitar, with whom Burnett regularly performs live in concert. Recorded in Virginia, “Guitars and Vocals” includes retakes of several tracks from “Confidence Game” as well as several new compositions, all written by Larry Burnett.
35 years of professional musical experience as a solo artist, performing in duos and in bands touring, recording, composing, and performing, Don Chapman is a musical fixture in the mid-Atlantic region and has performed on many national stages, including hundreds of Native American events and festivals. He is well known for his acoustic 6 and 12 string prowess and his exploits also include “sideman” services for other singer/songwriters serving as a lead guitarist and harmony/backing vocalist both live & in the studio. In 2009 Don and Larry Burnett teamed up and recorded “Guitars & Vocals” which features Larry’s songwriting, vocals, and the duo’s harmonies.
