BIO

 

Lara Landon is a songwriter, worship leader and author based out of Nashville TN. Whether she’s meticulously crafting lyrics or playing for the physically and spiritually needy on nationwide tours that minister at prisons, rehabs and shelters as well as conferences, churches and on major media outlets, authenticity reigns supreme with Landon.

 

Having worked with Grammy Award winning writers and producers on 7 albums, she maintains her main goal is to be an intermediary. “I’ve learned over the past few years that my job, and success to me, is connecting people with God and connecting God with people—whether that be through hands-on service, or a simple melody that I’m playing on the piano,” she says. “I’m a connector, and if I’m doing my part correctly, I will disappear and leave people face-to-face with their own heart and the heart of God.”

Between her voice and her piano, she perfectly executes the music that she hopes will reach deep into her audience's souls. Pulling from the dark and pushing into the light, arms outstretched in both directions, Lara establishes that balance again the juxtaposition that makes her music feel moody and hopeful, joyful and broken, all at once. And it is a beautiful, perfect tension.
