Tell us about yourself and your music

From different paths of life and with the talent to express them through keys, My journey has been tracked. Parts based on myself and parts based on what I envisioned. From the early age of 4, I was given a keyboard to play around with, that was the door to my true Nature

Talk to us more about your latest release

The album “this world does not belong to us was conceived in November 2019 whilst seeing drastic changes in patterns, people, and the world surrounding me. Dreams that would come through as torments would be documented in sound, such as “Close your eyes son” were all I could see was ashes in the air and this boy’s grandfather closing his eyes to avoid seeing what was yet to hit him. “Empty grounds”, where the boy survived the chaos yet his grandfather had lost his life trying to save his grandchild. Grounds are empty and not a soul passing by. Similar to what is happening this present moment.

Close your eyes Son:

Empty Grounds:

What inspired you to write this release?

I could say that all my inspirations come from visions, dreams and even life learned experiences, where words cannot describe the emotion behind the true canvas as sound can.

Describe the writing and recording process

It took me 4 months to fully design this album from visualization and creating the closest to what was perceived.

With the lockdown, it just gave me more time to sit around the project and focus on every note and moment to build the story.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?

My purpose is to share the world messages through sound. I play the piano to give to others the emotion they need for that instance. I was born with talent. I can’t read music and all I do was self-taught throughout the years.

Who have you been listening to lately?

I have been listening to Yiruma, Ludovico Einaudi, Khatia Buniatishvili apart from other musicians like Dulce pontes, Mariza, Cuca rosetta.

Who are your biggest influences?

Yiruma, Ludovico Einaudi, Khatia Buniatishvili

Tell us about your passions

I love Martial arts, flying is another major passion of mine since a child. Part of my goals would be a Paragliding course, helicopter license, Yachting. I love our doors and traveling the world to experience life. Cuisine and pastry is also another passion of mine. I grew up in the bakery field in my father’s bakery in Portugal and learned how to roll a croissant at the age of 12.

What else is happening next in your world?

Preparing to tour the world as of next year.

Larry Moreira Presents His Piano Driven Debut 

‘This World Does Not Belong to Us’ Out Now 

Johannesburg, South Africa – May 14, 2020 – No one taught Larry Moreira how to read music, nor how to play the piano. It came as naturally to him as breathing. While he took a break from his piano bench for a period of his life, once he found his way back to the ivory keys it was as if he never left. Now, after close to a decade working on music he’s here with his debut, ‘This World Does Not Belong to Us.’

Larry Moreira was only four-years-old when he first sat down at the piano. A couple of years later he was performing. That is until his parents relocated the family from South Africa to Portugal. It was then a young Moreira put his musical aspirations away. As he got older, he found himself in the food industry. That was until 2012. It was then he decided it was time to trade in that career and follow his musical dreams. 

Since then he’s been working endlessly on his craft. Inspired by the cinematic realm, ‘This World Does Not Belong to Us’ is overflowing with music that would elevate a soundtrack’s score. From “All I Want Is Your Smile” to “Enchanted Moment” to “The Answer Lies Within Yourself,” every track that escapes Larry Moreira’s fingertips has the ability to paint across soundscapes like no other while evoking an array of emotion throughout the entirety of the album. Inspired by the struggles he’s encountered from the current pandemic to the lessons he learned in life, Larry Moreira’s ‘This World Does Not Belong to Us’ is as biographical as it is universal.
