“This album is a series of reflections and thoughts on the collective hallucination that is America, with a love song or two thrown in for good measure,” says Landry. who also uses the stage name of Frank Lemon, by the way.
“I wrote it from within the refuge of a small flat in a small village in western France, where I spent last summer. I found it to be a good place for seeing the forest through the trees, so to speak.”
Landry, originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, will open his British dates at the Americana Music Association UK’s festival in London on January 28.
Tickets for February 12 are on sale at £12 at Earworm Records, Powells Yard, Goodramgate, York, from The Crescent or online via the crescentyork.com.
