GILL LANDRY’S NEW ALBUM OUT TODAY

VIDEO FOR “JUST LIKE YOU” PREMIERES AT THE A.V. CLUB

U.S. TOUR WITH JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE

EUROPEAN TOUR WITH LAURA MARLING

The new self-titled album from Gill Landry is out today via ATO Records. The record, which premiered at The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/19UUpB1), is receiving widespread critical acclaim:

“Pitches its tent in the four-way intersection between Dylan-inspired folk-rock, atmospheric Americana, dusty cowboy songs and street busker ballads.” —Rolling Stone Country

“Beautiful guitar lines, rich fiddle strokes, space-filling drums, and delicate piano chords surround simple but powerful lyrics…” —Stereogum

Gill Landry features his strongest writing yet, and guest appearances from Robert Ellis and Laura Marling, among others, only enhance the evocative lyrics.” —Tennessean

“…gloomy, romantic…” —American Songwriter

Furthermore, the video for the album’s single “Just Like You” is streaming at The A.V. Club (http://avc.lu/1vYl90v) who calls the music, “layered, and incredibly cinematic.”

The 10-track album was fully produced and mostly engineered by Landry and recorded in what he calls, “a ramshackle, shanty-ass apartment on the south side of Nashville.” Landry gathered various friends and musicians on his nonstop travels alone and as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriting member of Old Crow Medicine Show. These artists include British songstress Laura Marling, who duets on “Take This Body,” singer-songwriter and guitarist Robert Ellis, trumpeter Nick Etwell of Mumford & Sons and Odessa Jorgensen, who lends harmonies and fiddle to a number of tunes. See track listing below.  

Of his inspiration behind the album, Landry explains, “These songs are my attempt at transcending the more classic type of broken-hearted love song I’d been writing for years where there was an obvious victim. I tried to not come at it from the point of how things could have/should have been or should be, but searching for a sweet, understanding surrender to what is or was, and moving forward with compassion and kindness without harsh judgment to the reasons for this crime or that misstep.”

Landry is currently on a U.S. run with Justin Townes Earle and will tour throughout Europe with Laura Marling this spring. See details below.

Landry’s illustrious career with Old Crow includes a 2015 Grammy Award win for “Best Folk Album,” a recent induction into the Grand Ole Opry, performances on “A Prairie Home Companion” & “Austin City Limits,” and world tours with featured stops at major festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Newport Folk Festival.
