Larry Murantes beautifully woven stories about everyday folks, set to song combine compassionate, socially conscious lyrics and an upbeat, joyful, energetic folk/rock style.

Murante is known for his story songs about everyday folks: a veterans impassioned display of the American Flag, or the backyard mechanic/Vietnam vet who comes to terms with his life, or the preacher’s wife who haunts the parsonage of a small Northwest town.
