Upon first hearing this artist's name, I just naturally assumed he was a Brit -- some sort of younger, cuter version of James Blunt. Well, the "younger, cuter" thing holds (and probably quite a bit of the "James Blunt" thing, too). But, in truth, 23-year-old Landon Pigg harkens from good ol' Nashville, U.S.A.
He released his first album (logically entitled LP) back in the summer, and it's a solid -- if not standout -- affair. There does seem to be a lot of this type of music floating around these days... pleasant voices, pleasant melodies, but nothing you haven't heard before on the OC and other such shows.
Still, what with his age (and, yes, those good looks), we'll cut Mr. Pigg a bit of slack and see if he can rise above his influences on his next go-round.
