Performing Live Friday 18 August from 4:00pm to 8:00pm
An artist creating an electronic blend of Soul, Blues and pop, Landa rote his first song at 12. After college he fled London for some Australian sunshine. During his time in Australia, Landa lived and worked for the 'Landa' family. Most evenings there were spent with me at the piano, writing songs for the kids before bed time.
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: OUR CHAT WITH LANDA
Which artists old or new inspire you the most? "Kings of Leon, Sam Cooke, Paolo Nutini."
When you start working on a new idea or song what is the first thing you do to kick-start the idea? "I usually start with the lyrics but occasionally I can start with a little melody hook or a chord pattern."
Are there any producers or artists you would love to collaborate with? "I would love to collaborate with Rhodes as a producer and with Chris Martin as a songwriter."
What is your go-to track of the moment? "My go-to track at the minute is Walls by Kings of Leon".
Do you prefer performing live or studio recording? "I love both for different reasons, I love the flexibility and creativity of being in the studio and creating something new. On the other hand, I love getting the opportunity to share my music in a live situation and getting the chance to see people engage with it."
Are you heading to or performing at any festivals this year? "I’m currently recording a four-track EP, the first track is to be released in September 2017."
What’s next for you this year? "My go-to item of clothing has to be a pair of sunglasses… can’t beat a pair of shades to hide behind."
Who are your style icons and why? "I can’t wait to perform at Bicester Village, such a great place full of such a diverse group of amazing music lovers."
