Biography

Nothing is more important to Gene Land than music...

Even as a child in Oklahoma, his Mom remembers him sitting for hours
listening to records, an early fascination with music that stimulated his
natural talent. He started writing at age 13 when he got his first guitar, and at 16, he sang an original song at the Oklahoma State Fair,
winning a talent show, and resulting in appearances on a morning TV show.

Moving to Kansas City at 18 gave Gene a new community to showcase his talent. His first performances were at talent contests, and as he
became popular, he was asked to perform at several country music
theatres across the midwest.

As his fame grew so did his talent, He has developed a rich, fluid vocal style that compliments all styles of country music, as well as the tender ballads that he writes. Performing is a great love for Gene and he has
appeared across the United States for the past 10 years, known for his strong and energetic performances.

His first single, “TAKE MY LOVE FOR REAL” was recommended by
BILLBOARD Magazine and made playlists across the U.S. as well as
Europe. His self titled first CD, and the second, “TILL I FIND YOU” made playlists internationally. In November of 1994, he reached # 6 on the WORLD COUNTRY MUSIC NETWORK charts with “COWBOYS GOT A HOLD”. In 1996, the single, “THE FRIEND YOU FOUND IN ME” charted in the U.S. and Europe.

Gene is now shooting into the millenium with his new release, “STRANGERS & ANGELS”, which showcases Gene’s strong, rich vocal style, and contains a variety of country music from fast moving tunes to soulful ballads. He definitely has his own unique sound that just seems to have a space in today’s vast market.

Lyrics

Take My Love For Real

Written By: Gene Land

(verse1)
Haven’t seen you for awhile not since I lost your smile
How does it feel to be on your own
Let me see you smile and then
Hold you in my arms again
Where you will feel so safe and warm
(chorus)
Have the winds of change made you realize
Do you feel like its time to make the compromise
and to take my love for real.
(verse2)
Has the night life made you see true love don’t come for free
Do you ever feel all alone
I never meant to let you go
But neither one of us would ever know
A love so true could ever be
(chorus)
Have the winds of change made you realize
Do you feel like its time to make the compromise and to take my love for real.
Take my love, Take my love for real.

Friend You Found In Me

Written By: Gene Land

Just a song to let you know
Sometimes feelings can’t be shown
And words just merely can’t explain
A special kind of feeling and noone knows the meaning
Just me and the whispers in the rain

For the friend I found in you brings light to shades of blue
There in the shadows of my mind
So have rainbow colored dreams as calming as the sea
Build bridges that go far, to let you reach your star
And remember the friend you found in me

In these ever changing times
You know friends are hard to find
And life, as short as it might be
But theres that special kind of feeling, Noone knows the meaning
listen to the whispers in the rain

For the friend I found in you brings light to shades of blue
There in the shadows of my mind
So have rainbow colored dreams as calming as the sea
Build bridges that go far, to let you reach your star
And remember the friend you found in me
Yeah remember the friend you found in me
