Larry Graham is an American singer, musician, songwriter, and record producer who is best known as both the bass guitar player in the influential psychedelic soul/funk bad, Sly & the Family Stone. He is credited with the invention of the slapping technique, which radically expanded the tonal palette of the bass, although he himself refers to the technique as ‘thumpin’ and pluckin.’ He is also the GRAMMY nominated founder and front man of Graham Central Station. Graham has worked with many legends such as Aretha Franklin and Prince.
