Having migrated to the United States from Ghana, West Africa in 1996, Gordon Lari has evolved through the American system with a six-year military career, a fully loaded corporate career and a revived music career that began in Ghana. What culminates in a trans-genre of ten songs, provides a coverage of Hip-Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Pop and what he calls Afro-Lypsoca. Each song on the music album takes the listener through a voice induced sense of relaxation, urgency and purpose, depending on the song at play. What started as some quality time in the studio in San Diego California during his military career has recently been finished with astonishing clarity in tunes, melody, strong lyrics and works expertly engineered and mastered at the Sound Lab recording studio in Greensboro, NC. Possessing a very unassuming personality, Gordon Lari sheepishly smiles at words of encouragement and praise at the nature of the works produced by him. All ten songs are written and performed by Gordon Lari. Having sown his roots in Greensboro since 1996, Gordon does not plan to change location due to his revived career in music. Greensboro is home. The engineers on the album are Thomas “Tripp” Darron, and Tom Rowan, playing the roles of recording and mix and master engineers respectively.
The ten songs include Triggerman Bow, More more, Running Sniper, Liberty, Trip to the Galaxy, Texting from the moon, Vampire leader, Cinderella, The Lion, and Insane. Dominating the pack from Gordon’s perspective are More more, a hip hop swagger induced fusion of African, African American and Caribbean vibrable tunes and lyrics that will attract the hard core hip-hop and rap enthusiast. Texting from the moon belongs in a class of its own and also suggests an emerging style that could smash the American charts given the right exposure.
Already gearing up for his first single in a very long time, Gordon promises listeners a surprising diversion into an area that could once again have critics talking charts. To Gordon Lari, the excitement of gradually immersing himself into music once again is enough to keep him spiritually and physically well-grounded in crafting a promising future.
Folks, lets hear More more, and Texting from the moon for starters.
