The Next Round - Episode 38: Gill Landry

It seems almost crazy to leave your position in a Grammy-winning band to focus on your solo career, but Gill Landry did just that when he released his self-titled third album in March.  Then you hear the record and his decision totally makes sense.  A far cry from the foot-stomping nu-grass of Old Medicine Show, the LP sneaks up gently and then takes hold, with Landry's lyrics of different experiences with love forcing you to reckon with your own feelings, past and present.

I got to talk with Gill before his show at Mercury Lounge in June.  As anyone who reads this blog knows, I go to Mercury Lounge all the time, but it was honestly one of the best-sounding shows I've ever been to at the venue.  Landry's deep voice cut through the silence perfectly, and despite his modesty when he talks of his guitar-playing, he offered up some skilled, extended intros on both "James Alley Blues" and "Lawless Soirez."
