Real Vegan Style: Larra Skye

I'm super excited to be starting off a new year of Real Vegan Style posts with the über talented vegan singer/songwriter Larra Skye. Larra, a fellow Canadian & Torontonian, has been vegetarian since the 9th grade and vegan since September of 2009. In 2005 Larra released her debut album The World Disappears to a full house at the Montreal Bistro in Toronto. She is now currently pre-selling her upcoming album The Wishing Tree which will be released in the Fall of 2011. With musical inspiration like Rosie Thomas, Dusty Springfield and Chet Baker her new album is bound to be fantastic. This Saturday (Feb 5th) you can catch Larra performing live over at Remarks Bar & Grill (1026 Coxwell Ave.) for The Brenda Carol Renaissance Jazz Fair (more info at the bottom of the post). Larra was also recently interview by the Toronto Vegetarian Society. You can check out her interview and performance of her new song "Pull Me" here. When Larra is not writing songs or performing live you can find her reading a book, enjoying Mexican Food, digging through the racks of local thrift shops, biking around town and watching old movies.
