country,traditional country songs, and foot-stompin' old time fiddle
"If it moves you, then it's music, regardless of
it's melodic style." So says John Landry, a country music artist
unlike any other, at least in so far as his influences are concerned.
With a CD collection that spans to Mozart and Elton John, it's not
surprising to hear Landry say that it's all about the music, and how
it makes you feel while listening to it. Although Landry's music is
undeniably country, his long, lanky frame and telltale Stetson are at
home in the opera, theatre and country bars alike.
A native of Eastern Quebec, the 29 year-old Landry's
first performance was for his grandmother, back when he was four
years old. She recorded him singing Charlie Pride's "Snakes Crawl at
Night", on an old recorder and captured the very first expression of
what would later become a life long passion. Afterwards, as he grew
up and went to school, he would be reminded of the boyhood love he
held for making music.
"I went to school to become a Flight Medic, always
holding onto my dream of being a country singer," remembers
Landry."While working I wrote a song about a friend who was having a
tough time dealing with some issues. The song affected her in a way
that I never could have with just simple words. I think that was my
first time I realized just how powerful music was and that I wanted
to spend the rest of my life performing it."
Those talents are evident in Landry's full-length
debut CD titled, Forever Took Too Long. released in July of 1999,
chosen as the # 1 Canadian Country Album in Country Music News. The
album showcases the singer/songwriter's ability to touch the
listener's heart with powerful, meaningful ballads and then turn on
the heat with songs that'll make you want to get up and
Recently performing at several fundraisers (OCMA,
Cystic Fibrosis and the Heart & Stroke Foundation), Landry had
the opportunity to perform in the opening spot for Julian Austin and
met Jamie Warren, one of his Canadian influences. In the process,
Warren referred him to J. Richard Hutt at Cedartree Studios, and the
rest is history.
A newcomer to the business, Landry is a country
music star who is ready to shine. An undeniable talent through his
youth, he is more astounded than anyone else when he looks around and
realizes that he is in the company of incredible Canadian country
talents like, Jamie Warren, Giselle, Beverley Mahood, Fred Hale (his
co-writer on the debut single There You Were), and many others. Like
his peers growing in the Canadian country music industry, Landry is
on his way to fulfilling a dream of a lifetime, for a lifetime, and
