Following 200 festival and club dates over the past year, Colorado based singer/songwriter collaborates with PJ Bianco (Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony) who produced and co-wrote the new track.
Driven by a practical and powerful work ethic that comes from being raised on his family’s cattle ranch, Landon Williams has been in non-stop whirlwind mode since the release of his popular 2013 debut EP – including 200 festival and club performances just in the last year!
While working on a follow-up project for release this fall, the multi-talented, Colorado based singer-songwriter keeps the momentum going with the July 7 drop of his infectious new single “Tonight.” The track, which captures the higher end of his dynamic vocal range, was co-written and produced with veteran pop/rock songwriter producer PJ Bianco, well known for his hit-making magic for everyone from Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, LP to Metro Station and Fifth Harmony.
A perfect combination of old school organic influences and contemporary vibes, Landon counts Van Morrison, Marvin Gaye, The Rolling Stones and John Mayer as chief inspirations, yet colorfully explains “Tonight” as what might happen if “Foster the People and MGMT were to pick up Lana Del Rey at a club.” He adds “ The song has multiple vibes being happy and upbeat yet looming with a dark edge, which I feel sonically conveys how any good thing can fade or relapse.”
Three songs from Landon’s self-titled EP are enjoying a fresh resurgence via retail and hospitality airplay. “My Heart” has been in rotation in Abercrombie & Fitch stores since March 2015 and begins playing in Express stores this July, and Hilton Hotels is now spinning “Goin’ North” in rotation. Landon’s growing catalogue is attracting licensing interest from numerous outlets. “My music has changed kind of abruptly from the EP to ‘Tonight,’ but I feel there’s always a large element of smoothness in almost every song I write that keeps a musical thread going,” Landon says. “Smoothness, richness and energy is everything to me, and that’s what I’m always trying to bring to my own material.
