Gill Landry

December 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Gill Landry is a two-time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, storyteller, visual artist, and writer.

Gill Landry is a two-time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, storyteller, visual artist, writer, etc. With a career spanning over two decades, he’s released five solo albums on multiple labels as well as contributing to numerous collaborations with a diverse array of other artists. His journey has also taken him on countless extensive tours across the United States and abroad.

Born and raised between the musical landscapes of Louisiana and the Pacific Northwest, Gill began honing his craft as a busker between New Orleans, the West Coast, and Europe. In 2004, he joined Old Crow Medicine Show, who he worked with from their van-and-trailer days at dive bars and dance halls to the main stages of festivals, Grammy triumphs, and induction into the Grand Ole Opry. In 2015, Gill decided to part ways with the band, dedicating himself entirely to his solo creative pursuits.

Though under the Americana umbrella, each of Gill Landry’s solo albums is a testament to his versatility and his ability to craft music that defies easy categorization. While his musical styles may range widely from song to song and album to album, his writing consistently reflects a profound, honest, and often poetic exploration of the vicissitudes and joys of love and life. His debut solo album, ‘The Ballad of Lawless Soirez,’ was released in 2007 during his tenure with Old Crow on Nettwerk Records. In 2011, ‘Piety & Desire’ followed, produced in collaboration with The Felice Brothers and featuring guest artists such as Brandi Carlile and Jolie Holland. His eponymous third album, released in early 2015 on ATO Records, and featured a duet with Laura Marling and a rich tapestry of talented collaborators. In 2017, ‘Love Rides A Dark Horse’ was released the ATO and Loose labels. Gill’s most recent record, ‘Skeleton At The Banquet,’ was recorded in Los Angeles with producer/bassist Seth Ford-Young (known for his work with Tom Waits and Edward Sharpe), and was released just weeks before the onset of the pandemic.

A seasoned road dog, Gill has shared stages with an eclectic array of artists, including Laura Marling, Justin Townes Earle, Brandi Carlile, Michael Hurley, Ben Harper, Mumford & Sons, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes, Andre Williams, and Nathaniel Rateliff, among others. In 2012, he played a pivotal role in the creation of the film ‘Austin to Boston,’ not only co-writing and narrating it but also performing and navigating every mile of the journey in a 1970s Volkswagen Bay Window. The documentary chronicled a 3000-mile tour from SXSW to Boston, featuring the musical talents of Nathaniel Rateliff, Ben Howard, Bears Den, and The Staves. Additionally, he’s in the Grammy-winning film ‘The Big Easy Express,’ which documented a train tour from San Francisco to New Orleans with Old Crow, Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Presently, Gill lives on a ranch in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California, communing with nature and finishing up his next album ‘Cinnamon Canyon Blues’ which was produced in London with his friend Ted Dwane from Mumford and Sons and will be released in early 2024.
