Van Larkins - Outback Storm

Van Larkins - Outback Storm
Defying the eye when playing his energetic melodies, harmonies, percussion and bass with just 6 strings and a chunk of the finest carved wood, Van Larkins doesn't sing. He doesn't play drums. And there's no loop pedal. After all, why do any of that when he can make his acoustic guitar do it all?

Transforming what we traditionally consider a classical guitar style with musical influences like electronic, psy trance and 70's funk, it's no surprise that Van Larkins is spearheading this musical revolution.

"I experiment and use every possible part of my acoustic guitar to make music. It could be bending the neck to make that 'wah wah' sound or pushing my elbow on the back to create delay, while wiggling the capo for a whammy clav effect!" said Van Larkins, "It's just so much fun to see what I can do next."

Recently 'sounding off' with him at Sunshine Coast music conference, Turn Up!, in what can only be described as a jaw-dropping display of sonic creation, Australia’s greatest electric guitar player, Phil Emmanuel said, “Van Larkins creates a beautiful musical soundscape. His application of musical cascades and original compositions shed new light to the term ‘ear candy’.”
