Landalin

Please introduce yourself real quick…


Who am I? That's a deep question low-key lol. For starters I was born and raised in Columbia, MO. I found influence in music by listening to the hits of the 80s, late 90s and early 2000s. I found a passion for Hip-Hop at an early age thanks to my mom who always had artists like Eminem, Ludacris and Nelly in the CD changer. I'm really just a nerdy, eccentric kid from the Midwest at heart…but in the studio or on stage it's like someone hits a switch and then it's all business.


What do you do?


Currently I am writing and recording my next album "VHS" which is scheduled for a spring/summer 2018 release. It's sort've a nostalgic look into my childhood and is themed around the movies I grew up watching in the 90s and 2000s. It will also be my first album released on all major streaming platforms and retailers.

In the meantime I've been networking with various producers and artists to collaborate on singles. I just recently dropped a Hip-Hop/Trap single entitled "Daddy" with my good friend Zherony over in Spain. You can stream and download that on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud (links can be found at Landalin.com).


What´s new right now?


You can stream my latest album "25/7" via Soundcloud.com/landalinlsw

It is by far my most personal project yet. With songs like "Nimbus", "Jezebels" and "French" I'm flexing my writing ability while chopping apart eardrums with rapid-fire flows. It's really an album for anyone who has a dream or a hobby, and wish to one day make that the center of their life. You can't count the cost. You have to be willing to work 25/7 to make that dream happen.

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


I'm a superfan of artists such as Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Jon Bellion, Logic, Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


My biggest mistake was trying to curtail my style to fit a current trend in popular music. I was pretty much trying to sound like other artists who were popular at the time rather then developing my own style and sound. This is wrong to do because once that particular trend is no longer popular then my music would no longer be relevant.

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?


The best advice that I can give is to consistently post new content as much as possible without spamming potential listeners. Everyone wants to be heard but nobody will LISTEN if those you are promoting to keep recieving the same generic posts. If you're copying and pasting the same captions and links most fans will ignore them.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


My biggest challenge is gaining exposure and notoriety with new fans and listeners. I also seem to have trouble booking shows in other venues outside of my immediate area.

How do you personally discover new music?


I discover new music by searching sites such as SoundCloud or Apple Music for new or recommended artists based on my prior search results and streams/downloads.

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?


“I refer others to new music either by word of mouth, or sharing links on social media through my smartphone or computer.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


Setting aside time where you are at your peak creative state is key. It might not be daily, but finding time is over half of the battle. Inspiration can come randomly sometimes so being ready to jot down ideas at a moments notice is important. Even if you don't have a completed idea or concept write everything down.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


If the vibe isn't there, shelf that song and come back to it. I've completed alot of songs that sometimes took over a year to even fully write. If you rush to finish a song just for the sake of releasing it the quality might not be up-to-par.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


I will have released my next album on all major retailers and streaming sites. I plan to be on a regional tour performing in other cities and states that have never heard my music before.
