MYX Spotlight Interview: Larren Wong

Posted By: Nino Llanera
Post Date: February 24, 2022

Larren Wong came down to our MYX Global Studios in Los Angeles and answered a few questions so we could get to know him better. Find out about his musical background, what it was like growing up bi-racial in the Bay Area of California, and if he speaks Tagalog in this Spotlight Interview.

About Larren Wong:

Larrenwong is a self-taught vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter from Union City, CA. The child of a Filipino immigrant mother and African-American father, Larren has a diverse, rich ethnic history. His grandfather, a big band jazz leader and flautist in the New York Philharmonic was an early musical role model for Larren, despite being hard to impress.

The now 24-year-old artist began playing the guitar at the age of 12 and has been actively working to elevate his craft ever since. Along the way, Larren learned how to play bass, piano, and the bassoon as well. After playing D1 football and obtaining a Masters of Science for Leadership in the Creative Enterprises at Northwestern University, Larren played linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks before deciding to leave athletics to pursue a full-time career as a musician.

Drawing heavily from sounds of the Bay Area as well as artists like Erykah Badu, J Dilla, and D’Angelo, Larrenwong fuses his range of influences and life experience into a worldly sound that is uniquely his own.
