Bio

Born in Santurce and named Orlando Olivera after his father, Landy is a young songwriter, musician and singer who describes music as part of his lifestyle. He was a kid when he fell in love with the magic that surrounds music, but it was in the early 90’s and while still in high school that he started educating his voice in the classical style.

In 2000 he joined a rock band and officially started appearing in shows throughout the island. After a while, he became part of another band that merged carnival, rock, reggae, jazz, and salsa rhythms. But that is all in the past.

A few months ago, Landy made a wish come true. After years of hard work, he proudly presents his first independent musical production called “Obviamente”. For him, this project was born after a strong desire to permanently reflect all the impulses, sensations and satisfactions that singing provokes in his soul. The 10-song album benefited from the collaboration of local and very talented musicians, such as Paoli Mejías, Yan Carlos Artime, Tony Escapa and Ramón Vázquez, among others. This input allowed Landy to integrate bohemia, funk, rock, trova, bomba, jazz and pop, while maintaining a unique identity. The production has very autochthonous elements like the cuatro strings, bomba barrels, and of course, his guitar, which he carries everywhere he goes. There is also something, a je ne sais quoi in his strong, vibrant voice that forces you stay still and listen attentively the minute he starts singing.

“Obviamente”, “Hay una luz”, “All about love”, and “Tu” are some of the songs you’ll find in his CD, and all the lyrics (he wrote seven of the 10 songs) are splashed with everything from love, to lust, to traffic jams after a long day at work, to surfing, and nature. Speaking of nature, Landy who is also an industrial engineer, is a proud vegetarian, and has a very active and balanced lifestyle; he practices yoga, surfing and volleyball. Landy’s “Obviamente” can be found at the Itunes store and at his live presentations, which are held weekly in different venues throughout San Juan.
