With an award-winning voice that's been described as "Sheer perfection," LJ Folk is at home
singing everything from simple ballads to the swinging standards of the American Songbook.
Why Parking For Meatballs?
The restaurant is long gone but the "Parking for Meatballs Restaurant" sign actually
existed for years in Madeira Beach Florida, until it was painted over in 2022.
It was a regular source of humor for LJ and his growing girls when they
traveled to Madeira Beach on their annual summer visits.
One of the highlights of LJ's latest is his duet with the exquisitely talented Emilie-Claire Barlow.
Licensed by Porsche-Motorsport for their 2017 New Year
Campaign, Great Year is becoming a modern classic.
A wonderful tune to help ring in any New Year.

Larry "LJ" Folk has worn a lot of hats in the music business over the past 45 years: Music Director, Producer, Writer, Arranger, Composer and Educator, but the one his audiences love best:
His award-winning tone, and silky leads breathe new life into well known songs, and his jazz arrangements of songs from the 60”s and 70’s offer a delightful revisit to the songs of that era.

PARKING FOR MEATBALLS
"Despite the whimsical title, this CD
is a work of incredible depth and artistry
and certainly one of the finest
vocal jazz recordings of the year"
(WholeNote Magazine April 2015)
"If you love vocal jazz, you will want to add this
high-energy artist to your collection.
(CADENCE MAGAZINE 2014)
"I give LJ and his musical partners a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this excellent vocal jazz album – it’s a winner, for sure".
Dick Metcalf ( Roctcod Zzaj)
"I've got a new, favourite Toronto singer... LJ Folk. (his) voice is expressive yet controlled and has a lovely warm tone. Tasteful solos by all the players round out the charms of this album."
