Landon Wordswell Biography
 
Landon Wordswell is a 31 year old Santa Fe, NM resident by way of the St. Louis area and Portland, OR. Those cities combined have influenced and crafted the emcee's tenacity, perspective, and insight. Landon's stage performance & delivery have been praised on tours both nationally & internationally for it's captivating crowd appeal. Wordswell specializes in utilizing intricate rhyme schemes often being coupled with tightly knitted personal lyrics and a bold truth.
 
The Indianapolis, IN born emcee was immediately moved to Brooklyn, IL (St Louis Area) where his single mother taught him honor, resilience, and hustle on a day to day basis by simply living as an example of it. Seeing these qualities pay off led to his family relocating to a much safer, well established area in his late childhood. Constant growth can be heard from his first solo effort, "The Mourning After Pill", to his forthcoming, "New Flexico".
 
Along with touring the United States with his past tour partner, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), he has also completed a full European tour with the Artifacts and national tour with the very legendary Talib Kweli in 2018.
