Larry L. Barrett is the 7th child of Irene Barrett. At the age of 12, Larry was sent to the five provinces of Canada by the City of Chicago as a result of his grade scores in grammar school and had the highest test score recorded in the previous 10 years in the Chicago School System.  He also joined the All-City Choir at 17 and was awarded a one-year singing and acting scholarship to Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts in the Blackfoot Mountains of California. 

Larry enrolled at the University of Illinois where he performed with Mattie Moss Clark.  After one year in college, Larry came back to Chicago and he and his brothers recorded their first single on the Natru Label entitled “Occupy My Mind” with four of his brothers and performed in the Marvin Gave concert as the opening act just before  The Mighty Clouds of Joy. in 2002, Larry Barrett self-released the single “Never Give Up”. Although it was highly regarded and played on 176 stations throughout the United States, because of lack of administration with the company he was with and Southwest Distributors going out of business, there was no financial returns.  Undaunted, Larry Barrett moved to Texas and established Phy-Tur Records LLC and has worked with various artist over the years.

With the help of his brothers (Class Act Entertainment), he released “Praise God” in July 2019 through CD Baby as a test project. On June 4th, 2022, he released the 4 song Ep “Watch and Pray” which is now playing on over 580,000 instore radio systems overseas and is scheduled to be played in McDonald's, Taco Bell, Subway and the Hilton Towers later this year.
