Bio

Gator Landon was born in Ontario, Canada in 1982. He lived on farms there until he was nine years old. His father then decided to sell the house and drive the entire family around the country and figure out where they wanted to live next. West Virginia became the family's home for the next 2 and a half years until poverty forced them out into North Carolina where the economy was doing much better at the time. He finished up high school there and began to gather drum machines, tascam recorders, keyboards, and turntables. He took drum lessons for a year while he was sixteen before aquiring his first set of Tama drums. His father was also teaching him guitar throughout the years which he used mostly to create instrumentals. He met a young Russian girl from New York City at nineteen and decided he would move there for her only to come face to face with heartbreak. He then went into the city to pursue a short, but sweet modeling career . He also studied method acting for a few months which gave him the confidence to at least try singing. After he had made a little money, he went to the Apple store downtown and purchased an ibook which contained garageband. With this new tool he was able to create songs by overdubbing tracks and he began to write short stories and poetry to go in the mix. He left New York to move back to North Carolina to get back in touch with something real. He started a rock 'n' roll band named "frank" (named after his great grandfather) and started truly pursuing music. His main influences came from his father's record collection which includes The Doors, Led Zepplin, Billy Cobham, Tom Waits, Canned Funk, Monty Python, Tom Petty,Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Jazz, Lounge,etc. His brother also encouraged more ninties rock and hip-hop. He is currently working on his first solo album which will include his wife (LB), and some friends and some of his original garageband recordings. His music is mainly based off of his imagination, but he will also use factual events throughout history to find the base for a song. For work he now installs, sands and finishes hardwood flooring for his father.
