RCA Records singer/songwriter Landon Pigg
will set out on a nationwide club tour with fellow RCA Music Group label mate Gavin DeGraw
The 10 city tour kicks off on February 26th in Gainesville, FL and wraps on March 11th at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles.
Landon's latest single "Falling In Love At a Coffee Shop" has experienced incredible success since being featured in the "A Diamond Is Forever" ad campaign. Over 122,000 downloads have been sold since the track was made available at the end of 2007 making it a Top 50 song at iTunes, and with the ad campaign renewed through March 2008 the song continues to rise weekly. Additionally, the track has been streamed over 321k times on Landon's MySpace page and it is now available as a ringtone.
This spring will see the release of a new, still untitled, EP which will be anchored by "Falling In Love At a Coffee Shop" and Landon plans to head back into the studio to continue recording. Since the release of his acclaimed debut disc in 2006, Landon (who has been compared to Coldplay
and Elliott Smith
to name a few) has been making friends and fans wherever he goes. The Nashville-based vocalist has been praised for his refreshing stage presence, with his live show adding another dimension to the recorded versions of his songs.
