Larry Heard United States
Larry Heard is one of the originators and one of the greats of Chicago house music. He emerged publicly in 1985 from the roots of "House Music", with the debut single "Mystery of Love". This domain is where he found an outlet for his musical ideas. Most people who have followed his music think of him as a multi-keyboardist, but a little known fact it that his development was as a drummer and percussionist in local Jazz, Rock, R&B, and Reggae bands dating back to 1977.
