Larry Gold, producer, superb cellist, and most notably, brilliant arranger, is as much a part of the fabric of the Philly music scene as Leon Huff, Kenny Gamble, Thom Bell, and The Roots. He is revered among his peers as one of the top arrangers in the music business.
Larry’s always in the mix of popular music, and the past couple of years have been no different. He’s done work with Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak for their superstar soul group, Silk Sonic, on the album including the smash hits “Leave The Door Open” and “Smokin Out The Window,” Lizzo, Halsey, Rosalía, The Teskey Brothers, and Paul Stanley.
One of his most well-known works appears on Kanye West‘s Graduation featuring his signature strings on the breakout track “Flashing Lights”. He also worked on Justin Timberlake’s monumental single “Cry Me A River,” Jennifer Lopez’s #1 single “If You Had My Love,” and The Roots’ Grammy-winning single “You Got Me (featuring Erykah Badu)”.
