We had the good fortune of connecting with Larry Ladale and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Larry, why did you pursue a creative career?
I could easily say it pursued me! No matter what other careers I’ve chosen; music always kept calling. Information technology, drafting, customer service, indie pro wrestling; none compare to the fulfillment singing, dancing and playing guitar brings. Music is what feelings sound like and I can’t live without it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
There’s a lot of negativity in the world right now. The music I make is about positivity. Making it through the rough times and thoroughly enjoying the great times. This is life. This balance is essential in fully taking advantage of the time we have on Earth. Chasing your dreams can be difficult; self doubt, discouragement, long nights. But anything truly worthwhile is never easy.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
– Must go to Cidercade in Dallas or Free Play in Arlington. If you can’t go to the arcade, were we ever really friends? – Perot Museum of Nature and History is a must
– Redbird Bowling Lanes in Duncanville. Dirt cheap on Sundays
– Taste of Thai in Arlington. Best yellow curry duck ever.
– A night out on the town would be Deep Ellum everything. Walking around to see what shows are playing and eating some good Cajun at the Free Man.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My siblings and parents are the charter members of my fan club. They get the first shout. My sponsor, GHS Strings, venues like Ebb & Flow Dallas, Whitehall Exchange Dallas, Grease Monkey of Arlington, Cartel Taco of Arlington. Also, bookers who have kept me afloat during COVID; Droo D’anna and Michael Kreider. Thank you all so much.
