ARTIST PROFILE: SHOW ME THE SKYLINE
Larzz Principato, the main member of Show Me The Skyline, has had his guitar glued to his body for the better part of the last five years. But, when you are obsessed with music, young, and gifted with the ability to create something that makes people crave more — sometimes you’ve got no choice. At just 16 years old, this young artist, hailing from New Fairfield, Connecticut, is determined to make his mark. Drawing influence from artists such as Hellogoodbye, All Time Low, and Dashboard Confessional, Larzz is focused on his game plan to stand on the shoulders of the heroic artists that have had an impact on him, and to produce a fresh sound.
The name Show Me The Skyline is taken from lyrics of the song “Sticks, Stones, and Techno” by All Time Low. Larzz began writing in the summer of 2008 and entered the studio in the fall. The January 2009 release of Show Me The Skyline’s first EP, titled “Rain or Shine”, was produced by P.J. Bianco and J.P Rende. P.J. Bianco is an award-winning multi-platinum producer/songwriter whose discography features The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato.
This artist’s story is just starting, and the “Rain or Shine EP” is only the first chapter to a tale that is destined to be one filled with opportunities and challenges. Larzz is doing exactly what he has set out to do, which is to have fun, to meet lots of new people, and to pay tribute to the style of music he grew up listening to.
