Larisa Stow


“I believe that music is the bridge that brings us together. Music is the first place we start celebrating each other’s cultures. When I integrate sounds from another culture, I feel like I am embracing it, declaring our oneness.” ~ As winner of Los Angeles Music Awards’ Singer/Songwriter of the Year, Larisa Stow is known for her thought-provoking, soul-searching lyrics and haunting melodies. Together with legendary producer David Tickle (U2, Sting, The Police, Peter Gabriel, 4 Non Blondes) and DTS under a special recording agreement they created the first original album featuring 10 of Larisa’s compositions for 5.1-Channel Surround Sound. Supported by DTS’s new company-owned entertainment label, Larisa released a DVD version of the critically-acclaimed album “Moment By Moment” which contains a video of her song, “Heaven.”
Her passion to integrate the sounds of popular music, world-based rhythms and melodies with the ancient form of Kirtan, devotional call and response music, has driven her to collaborate with Grammy award-winning producer and songwriter, Rick Hahn (Celine Dion). This magical union resulted in a compilation of engaging Kirtans that are a seamless blend of east meets west. She also produced an album of spiritual kirtans featuring top-selling author, Thomas Ashley Farrand (“Healing Mantras”).
“Be the change you wish to see in the world” is one of Ghandi’s most beautiful and inspiring teachings that Larisa puts into daily practice. She is a unique artist who’s got vision and passion for her music and she is committed to “giving back” to the world.
