Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Bio
Over 100 sold out concerts across three continents, from Caesars Palace to the Apollo Theater and all points in between. A debut CD from a Grammy winning producer that hit the top of the Billboard charts. More than a million dollars raised for children’s and homeless charities via his holiday CD and personal appearances. Performing duets with childhood heroes Patti Labelle and Glenn Leonard, the former lead vocalist from The Temptations. An international television audience of over 100 million touched by his amazing life story. And it all started in a very small town with a man who possessed a big dream and an even bigger voice.
When Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. showed up to audition for NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent in 2010, he was singing to pass the time while grinding out a living washing cars in his hometown of Logan, WV (population 3,000) and the only “nice” clothes he owned were the ones on his back: a pair of jeans, a modest button down striped shirt and jacket.
Fortunately, you don’t need a slick wardrobe to win America’s heart. You need talent and personality, and Landau has a great deal of both. Wowing the judges with his back story of homelessness and determination to succeed for his family, coupled with interpretations of classics from Cole Porter, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and others, Landau walked away with the million dollar grand prize in front of 14 million weekly viewers. According to show insiders, when all was said and done, Landau had won America’s Got Talent by the biggest vote total in the show’s history.
In November 2011, Landau released his Columbia Records debut album “That’s Life.” The CD hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz chart in time for Christmas and was produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell, who also helmed Rod Stewart’s Great American Songbook album. Landau soon hit the road for his first ever tour, backed by an 18-piece big band, selling out performing arts centers, casinos, and theaters all over America.
Landau’s Christmas CD is full of both classic and brand new original holiday favorites. The CD features a guest appearance by former Temptations vocalist Glenn Leonard reprising his now classic lead on “Silent Night” from The Temptations Christmas album. Landau’s Christmas CD is also a best-selling fundraising vehicle for The Children’s Home Society charity, where Landau spent many years volunteering well before his America’s Got Talent win. Christmas is a favorite time of year for Landau, who goes all out with his annual holiday tour. Murphy often has local choirs and symphony orchestras join him on stage in their towns.
Landau’s third album, includes his signature take on popular Great American Songbook standards, updated versions of classic R&B tracks with what Landau calls a “Big Band twist,” and Landau’s first ever original compositions co-written with some of the music industry’s biggest Grammy-winning songwriters. Tracks were recorded at the famed Capitol Records Studio “B,” home to Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Nat “King” Cole, Dean Martin and many more legendary vocalists. The CD was helmed by Grammy winner Jeff Weber, who said that the album will “stay true to Landau’s signature style, while stretching him and showing just how versatile a vocalist, performer and songwriter he is. It’s going to pleasantly surprise a lot of people.”
But all of his success hasn’t made Landau forget his roots. He was born in the Mountain State of West Virginia and continues to live there rather than move to entertainment industry hubs like Los Angeles or New York. “West Virginia will always be my home,” says Landau, “and home and family are the most important thing in the world to me. I can always fly out to LA or New York for work, but being here in West Virginia helps keep me humble and grounded. I’m just very fortunate to be living my dream.”
