Larra Skye

The World Disappears is nothing if not an ironic title for 22-year old Torontonian Larra Skye's debut album. Given her undeniable talent, the calibre of musicians who lend their skills to the CD, and the stature of the industry veterans guiding her career, it would seem that the whole world could indeed be appearing for this gifted, young and bilingual singer/songwriter's taking!

In December 2005, Larra performed her first show at the famed Montreal Bistro in Toronto to a sold-out crowd. Her original compositions have been receiving airplay from Jaymz Bee and Reiner Schwarz of Jazz FM 91.1, and at campus stations CKLN 88.1 FM and CIUT 89.5. She has performed with some of the best of the best in Toronto's jazz scene - including Jim Vivian, Barry Romberg and Bob Brough. She continues to write music and is currently studying privately with Lisa Martinelli.
