Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is the soul- and Sinatra-singing season six winner of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. The former car washer’s Columbia Records debut album, produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell, spent six weeks as number one on the Billboard jazz chart. Landau’s follow-up holiday CD, Christmas Made for Two, raised thousands for the Children’s Home Society of West Virginia and received nationwide airplay.
His self-titled third album was recorded at the famed Capitol Records studios in Hollywood, California, where Sinatra recorded some of his signature classics. Landau has performed dozens of sold-out concerts around the world, headlining at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the Apollo Theater in New York City, and the Grove in Hollywood (for Tina Sinatra). His memoir, From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star, was an Amazon number-one bestseller in the jazz books category and a Readers’ Favorite Award winner.
Landau has been honored to perform with living musical legends, including Patti Labelle, George Benson, and former members of the Temptations, Platters, and Drifters. Landau was named one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Americans” by the United States Jaycees and “West Virginian of the Year” in his home state for his assistance in raising millions for those in need. An avid basketball and classic hip-hop fan, Landau continues to proudly make his home in West Virginia when not away on tour.
He’s amazing. He’s being compared to greats like Sinatra and Nat King Cole, and he deserves it.
