Gill Landry is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Louisiana. He began his music career busking on the streets of New Orleans, cutting his teeth through the ranks, interpreting life from the curb up. He released his first solo album "The Ballad of Lawless Soirez" in 2007 on the Nettwerk label and has been performing as a member of the band Old Crow Medicine Show since 2005. He's opened legitimately and as a stowaway for a number of tours for such act's as Mumford and Sons, Brandi Carlile, Ben Howard, The Felice Brothers, and many more.

His most recent release "Piety and Desire" (2011) is a love song to New Orleans. Named after two streets that run parallel through the city's 9th ward where Landry cut his teeth for years. With the album he paints a dark and beautiful landscape of characters and loves from "quarter rats" to barmaids, merchants to thieves.

Backed by the Felice Brothers, who co-produced the album with Landry, and Jeremy "The Searcher" Backofen, the album also features the talents of Jolie Holland, Brandi Carlile, Ketch Secor, Sam Parton and many others artists, creating an album that is timeless and at times other-worldly.

His latest body of work, the self-titled album "Gill Landry," will be released by ATO Records in early March 2015. The album features a brilliantly diverse, yet cohesive, body of songs and a diverse cast of characters as well. From the haunting duet with Laura Marling in "Take This Body" to the Tex-Mex country guitar sounds of Robert Ellis in "Fennario", the songs are timeless, yet modern. His keen sense for lyricism is highlighted beautifully by the tonality and melody of the compositions.

"Recorded in a south Nashville apartment and produced by Landry himself, the album pitches its tent in the four-way intersection between Dylan-inspired folk-rock, atmospheric Americana, dusty cowboy songs and street busker ballads. Landry gets a little help from his friends along the way, duetting with British folkie Laura Marling on the lush, lovely "Take This Body" and recruiting fellow Nashville transplant Robert Ellis to add some mariachi-inspired fretwork to "Fennario." The result is a record that's too far removed from Old Crow Medicine Show's old-time rave-ups to stand in that band's shadow — and probably too good, too." - Rolling Stone Country
