"Space - Review"

Imagine an escape to a place where the moon kisses the blackside of the beat and all mature and sexy things dance carelessly...free of the wounds of the world. That is where the music of soul crooner Lando takes you. His voice sensually caresses every note as he pleads with his woman "Please don't leave this way..." on "Space" the lead single from his debut cd entitled "...In This Space" due out in the summer of '09. I am eagerly awaiting the follow up to this melancholy yet groovy soul jam sure to be a staple in the soul community and beyond.

Bio

Raised on Detroit’s West Side, soul singer Lando(born Orlando R. Joiner) started singing at the age of five. Despite singing in church Lando was never quite certain he wanted to pursue a career in music. “I’ve always loved music but singing was another thing. I figured that I would just go to school to become an Accountant since I was always good with numbers”, he says. He graduated from Frank Cody Senior High School where he performed in statewide classical vocal competitions as a member of one of Cody’s prestigious performance choirs. Cody also spawned the talents of fellow industry classmates Nicci Gilbert of Brownstone, Dwele and Slum Village to name a few. By the time he made it to Atlanta to begin his studies at Morris Brown College he had already begun writing and performing with other artists and musicians on the fertile Detroit music scene. He cut his vocal teeth singing background and demoing songs for artists like Kenny Lattimore, Keith Washington, Chante Moore, Joe, Horace Brown, Raphael Saadiq, Tamar Braxton and Usher. That experience led Lando to being signed to a now-defunct imprint on Atlantic Records though he was eventually dropped. A multi-talented vocalist, songwriter, actor and producer Lando credits his eclectic taste in music to his parent’s vast array of musical interests. “My parents listened to everything from Nancy Wilson to Prince and I loved it all…I fell in love with music at a very early age” he exclaims. As a vocalist, Lando’s delivery is distinctive and captivating as he effortlessly stretches his elastic tenor beyond the limits of many of his contemporaries. Lando has participated in Atlanta’s open-mic scene and is currently working on his debut effort entitled “…In This Space”. He’s released the lead single from that effort entitled “Space” in April 2009. Garnering recognition and aplomb for his vocal prowess, insightful lyrics and impassioned performances Lando is becoming an anticipated audible decadency.
