Landon Pigg

  • Landon Pigg was born in Nashville, Tennessee. His father was a studio veteran and his mother was fond of poetry. When Pigg was a child, his family moved to Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, and he and two of his siblings, Cari-Ann and Gabriel, sang commercial jingles with their father's direction. They all attended Grace Lutheran School in River Forest, Illinois. Landon returned to Nashville as a teenager and applied himself to interests such as algebra and chemistry. He attended Christ Presbyterian Academy in Franklin, Tennessee. During Landon's adolescence, it was his father who offered him informal music education and encouraged his curiosity with music. He also credits his mother for nourishing his poetic side.
  • After one of his songs was featured on Grey's Anatomy and subsequently went into national rotation, Pigg began a publicity tour in summer 2006 which found him booked on Conan O'Brien's show, Last Call With Carson Daly, and other media outlets, including a radio tour and appearances in Teen Vogue, Glamour, and Performing Songwriter. In late August, Landon appeared with his band on The Early Show where he played "Can't Let Go", the first track from his latest album, LP.
  • In November 2007 his song "Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop" was featured on an A Diamond Is Forever commercial.
  • On February 26th, 2008 he kicked off his first show of the year, opening for Gavin DeGraw at the Common Grounds in Gainesville, Florida.
  • On March 12th Pigg performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
