[Excerpt from Landon Wall Musician Facebook 5-17-2017 post.]
Landon Wall is a professional musician, singer/songwriter from Trinity, North Carolina. Landon has loved singing all of his life. His parents bought him his first guitar for Christmas when he was six years old. His dad taught him a few chords so Landon could play a song that he really wanted to play. At the age of seven, Landon walked into a music store and asked if he could take guitar lessons. When their music teacher told him that he was too young and to come back in a couple years... it fueled his desire to learn even more. A few months later, Landon returned to that music store. He walked over to their selection of guitars selected one and began to play.
Since that day, Landon has continued to grow as a musician/artist. He's had the opportunity to perform in Nashville, Tennessee’s world famous venues that include:
The Nashville Palace
Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville
Landon has also played venues in South Carolina:
Landon has performed in conjunction with the Mini Starz on the Legends In Concert stage in Myrtle Beach
The Carolina Opry
Carolina Country Music Fest with Country Artist, Hunter Hayes.
Landon has been the subject of articles and interviews on such media outlets as SiriusXM - The Highway, and iHeart Radio along with Rolling Stone Magazine, Taste of Country and One Country plus others. They all agree, like you will once you hear Landon’s voice, Landon Wall is going places.
I asked Landon who some of his favorite artists were.
“I have a lot of favorites... artist like Chris Young, Hunter Hayes, Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Josh Turner, and Kip Moore. I'm a big fan of Blues and Country so I love it when those two sounds come together through artist like Chris Stapleton and Drake White.” [Bloggers note: I omitted the Mr. in front of the names. Landon is polite and was raised to respect his elders. When he gave me the list each name above had the mister before it.]
The song that has brought all this attention to Landon Wall is his single “Lost Boy”. Written by Landon and his dad and performed by Landon. The song is in response to the hit “Peter Pan” by Kelsea Ballerini. Landon shared with me how “Lost Boy” came about.
“Well, me and my dad were driving down the road and Ms. Kelsea Ballerini's song, "Peter Pan" came on the radio. We were thinkin’... I wonder what Peter Pan's side of the story would be...so we started writing, "Lost Boy."
“Lost Boy” is not the only song Landon Wall has for your listening enjoyment and/or purchase. His other songs include:
“Small Town Love”
“One Horse Town”
“Christmas in My Heart”

As Landon was wrapping up a performance of “Lost Boy” here in Nashville at The Bluebird Café, none other than Kelsea Ballerini emerged from the audience. Landon explains that moment and the circumstances that led up to it.
“Ms. Kelsea had seen my song on YouTube and she sent a tweet saying, ‘Oh My Heavens Landon, this is brilliant... come to a show and let me hug you.’ Well, when I got that tweet I was in Myrtle Beach for a show and Ms. Kelsea was in Nashville. Then Ms. Kelsea left Nashville heading for a show in Myrtle Beach and at the same time I had to leave Myrtle Beach to be in Nashville for a show so we missed each other. Well...I was still in Nashville when Ms. Kelsea got back so I sent her a tweet saying, "Hey Ms. Kelsea, I'm gonna be singing, "Lost Boy" at The Bluebird Cafe tonight... just in case you don't have any plans..." Well I was at The Blue Bird that night and I had just finished "Lost Boy" when I noticed Ms. Kelsea coming from the back. She came to The Bluebird to surprise me and had been hiding in the back the whole time. She walked up and said, "Landon, if you get to sing the response ... then I get to do my song." and gave me a big smile and asked if she could borrow my guitar. She sang her song "Peter Pan". She's so AWESOME and it was an AMAZING night. There's a video on my YouTube channel of the whole thing. You can see how surprised I was by the look on my face in the video!”
