Antonio Larosa live at Tractorgrease in Chilliwack

Roots-rock, country, and blues musician likens finding one’s sound to ‘finding yourself as a person’

Antonio Larosa, a 27-year-old up-and-coming artist, will be taking the stage at Tractorgrease Café in Chilliwack on March 3.

A four-piece band including the highly acclaimed pianist Tilden Webb, Scott Tucker (bass), and Shaquille Headley (drums) will join Larosa on stage as he performs songs off of his debut LP Steadfast and new songs of his EP being released later this year. This is Larosa’s first release in over a year, the EP was co-written and produced by platinum-selling producer Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run).

The performer describes his sound as “roots-rock, country, and blues” and likens finding one’s sound in music to “finding yourself as a person.”

After starring in a PBS special and touring internationally for the past two years with trio act Bailamos created by well-known Canadian music producer John Dexter (Carly Rae-Jepsen), Larosa is back home and in full-throttle.

Most recently, he headlined at various venues including Guilt and Co., The Roxy, The Heatley Café, The Hard Rock Casino, The Red Truck Concert Series, and this summer’s Rockin’ River Fest in Merritt B.C. amongst noteworthy country acts from the Unites States and Canada.

“Seeing people connecting and relating to the music is the best part of performing. That’s what it’s all about. That’s what inspires me to make music”, says Larosa.

You can expect “great vocals, amazing musicianship, and honest lyrics,” at the show, says Larosa.

Antonio Larosa performs Sunday, March 3 at 9:30 p.m. at Tractorgrease Cafe (48710 Chilliwack Lake Rd.). Tickets: $12 and can be purchased at the door or online at
