Stemming from an videography and direction background; Landel has been patiently waiting behind the scenes for his moment in the spotlight. Since a lane switch, which found him cruising down the artist route the singer has spent his time perfecting his craft and honing in on his current sound which pulls on the sweetest, ambient and soulful components of Jazz, R&B and Hip-hop.
