It’s a nostalgic throwback to the 80’s as local musician and soulful crooner Larry g(EE)
channels inspiration from the popular era for his latest single, “Days Like This.” Following a wealth of local television appearances and promos, the Dallas-based artist’s latest hit is magnetic – one that gets your toes tapping and hips swaying as you unconsciously get lost in the beat. Sprinkle in a dash of Prince, peppered with moves of the late Michael Jackson, and the final recipe is perfectly blended for a radio blaring summer jam: repeat and press play again
As preparations went underway for the creative development of the “Days Like This" music video, Larry g(EE) or Larry Gayao as close friends and family would call him, tapped the shoulder of DFW Style Daily Editor and local stylist Leah Frazier, to head as lead wardrobe stylist for the production.
