After an incredible 2016, signing to indie juggernaut Mello Music Group, perfecting his live show with his band, and releasing his debut solo For Mark, Your Son, Tucson (by way of Chicago) musician, Lando Chill releases his sophomore album, The Boy Who Spoke to the Wind on June 23.

Inspired by the Paulo Coelho book, “The Alchemist,” Lando’s new album is a personal tribute to self actualization, spiritual acceptance and social activism. Musically, this album is a movement forward from his previous work. The instrumentation is unlike anything else, sprawling from classic lo-fi hiphop to high production scoring. The album is as reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver as it is of Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar. Lando has been featured in Pitchfork, Passion of the Weiss, Bandcamp, Mass Appeal and more.

Lando Chill’s new album, The Boy Who Spoke to the Wind, is a personal tribute to self actualization, spiritual acceptance and social activism. About the title, Lando says, “The wind is one’s soul. It represents the human spirit and the earth.” Lando Chill is a warrior-poet, a man with one ear to mother nature and one to the plight of humankind. Lando wants to bring the issues of political freedom, police brutality and giving a voice to marginalized communities to the national conversation.

Inspired by the Paulo Coelho book, “The Alchemist,” Lando’s new album is about personal and spiritual transformation. While working on the project, Lando gained a new perspective; he learned that having answers isn’t enough.

Musically, this album is a movement forward from his previous work. Collaborating with producer Lasso, bassist Chris Pierce, as well as other key session musicians, the music is unique and intimate. The album harmonizes the internal and external in a cathartic symphony. The instrumentation is unlike anything else, sprawling from classic lo-fi hiphop to high production scoring. The album is as reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver as it is of Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar.
