Singer, Songwriter and blues guitarist extraordinaire, David Landon brings over 25 years of experience from the stage and studio to every note he plays. In the early days of David’s professional career (in the early 90’s), David lived and performed in Paris, France where he was a steady fixture in the European club and festival circuit –playing over 250 dates a year. Though life in Paris was truly wonderful for the American ex-pat / musician, David wished for something greater then the regional success he had achieved abroad and so he returned to the US in 1995 to further pursue his musical vision.
Since his return to the US David has released 5 solo c.d.s – including his newest effort “ I Like It Too Much” (release date: January 15, 2012) and has played on countless recording sessions. He has also performed in a multitude of venues across the US. In that time, Landon has also produced, performed and collaborated with many notable musicians such as Lenny Williams, Kenny Neal, Melvin Seals, Earl Thomas and Deacon Jones, to name just a few.
Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, David continues to tour and perform and has played numerous festivals and clubs including The Monterey Bay Blues Festival, The Delta Blues Festival, The SF North Beach Festival, Biscuits and Blues, and many others. The David Landon Band has also appeared on Bay TV’s Morning Show with John Kessler and on Kofy T.V. 20’s Late Night with James Gabbert.
Today David Landon is delighted to have finally assembled his “dream band” of music industry veterans who share years of experience and a love of making great music. Individually each member is considered a ”monster” by fans, critics and fellow musicians alike. Steve Evans (Roy Rodgers/ Ray Manzerek) on bass, Randy Hayes (Coco Montoya, Chris Cain) on drums and Tony Stead (Tommy Castro, Etta James) on keys make up the band.
Together they bring a truly unique experience to the stage that absolutely exemplifies the saying that “ the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” After experiencing just one David Landon Band performance every listener will instantly be transformed to the status of “true believer”.
