Larissa was practically born on a tour bus and grew up with music all around her. With a touring drummer for a father and family members singing throughout the country, she was born with country music flowing through her veins. The passion only got stronger as Larissa got older and in January of 2010 she started writing her debut LP. Larissa wrote with the goal of bringing people through the despair and devastation of a loss to the hope and peace of life and a future. These songs became her debut album, Where I’m Going.
Where I'm Going was released on November 11, 2011 to much success. “It Ain’t Gonna Be Like This Forever” and "I Feel Better When I Sing" both charted #1 on the PowerSource charts. In October 2012 she was voted New Artist of The Year at the annual ICM Awards. This led to notable performances at the ICM awards, Minnesota State Fair, and singing of the national anthem at a Minnesota Twins game. With the stream rolling, she recorded her followup EP "Life From Scratch" at iconic Ocean Way Studios in Nashville. The 7 song album was released in April of 2014, and featured the singles "Get on Board" and "Livin' in Today," another #1 hit for Larissa.
