The follow-up to 2021’s “Live In Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace”, “I’m Not Messing Around” is Landau’s first-ever album of all original material. All songs were written or co-written by Landau and the album’s producer, Rob Hegel, best known for his work with Air Supply, Labelle’s Sarah Dash, and his solo career, which included appearances on American Bandstand and scoring the themes for many network television shows including “Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert’.
“It’s the album I’ve wanted to do for twelve years. All the songs are in the same style as the Sinatra and Cole Porter songs that I love to sing. I want these songs to stand alongside Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra in the Great American Songbook. The world is missing songs written with respect and love; I’m trying to bring back good feelings of compassion, love, chivalry, respect, and romance. That’s the type of music I want to bring to the world,” said Landau.
“I’m Not Messing Around” was recorded in the fall of 2023 at Skeleton Key Studios in Las Vegas with many of the top players from the Vegas strip. Landau says, “Like the song and album title says, I’m not messing around. I’m serious about this craft of songwriting; I’m serious about this genre of music.”
Tour dates to support “Not Messin’ Around” are scheduled throughout the U.S. in 2024. Booking inquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
