Gill Landry - Visible Voice Session 

Louisiana-born singer-songwriter Gill Landry swept into Seattle gracing the stage at Showbox in support of his latest release, “Love Rides a Dark Horse”. Road-worn and introspective as ever, Landry’s latest crop of songs fuse the traditional ornamentation of country and folk with the kind of personal, penetrating poetry that propelled Landry into the national conversation.

Written in the wake of a torturous break-up and his departure from Old Crow Medicine Show, “Love Rides a Dark Horse” is, in Landry’s words, “a map out of the darkness rather than an invitation to it”. As often happens, despair is a blessed motivator of artistic invention and Landry’s depths are no exception.

Brutally frank, with flourishes of romantic whimsy, “Love Rides a Dark Horse” is a voyage through a dark night of the soul. In standout track “Berlin”, Landry sings, “Sometimes the darkest moments can be treasures”. It is the perfect summation of this album…a treasure trove of dark moments.

Gill met up with us before his show in the most intimate setting yet... That's right, sitting on the toilet. Enjoy!
