Member Profile
Anthony Landry
Tony “Doc” Landry is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who first discovered his voice and a passion for songwriting in his late-thirties.

As a songwriter, Landry meanders through musical styles like traveling down a river through different countries without a passport. He borrows from any musical style or era – weaving together elements of pop, folk, dance, country and soft rock into a seamless sound that is mature and personal. Doc’s songs are lyrically driven, witty, heartfelt, and focus on universal themes that allow his music to be appealing to a wide audience. His approach to singing is soft and emotionally driven exemplified by his favorite artists: Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, and Jack Johnson.

As a child the Halifax, Canadian-born singer/songwriter grew up playing the piano, winning several awards at festivals and recitals for his emotional performances, but ultimately quit due to frustrations with sight reading. It was a quarter-century later that Doc picked up a guitar for the first time and fell in love with songwriting. Driven by a longing desire to share his half-lifetime of stories and varied life experience Doc immediately starting writing songs for friends and family and hosting house concerts throughout Atlantic Canada.

In June of 2017 Doc caught the attention of acclaimed Toronto-based producer Les Cooper. Cooper’s musical productions have been featured on television shows such as Riverdale, Grey’s Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters, Fringe, and One Tree Hill and have also won many awards including two Junos (The Good Lovelies, Meaghan Smith). Together they are in the process of creating Doc’s first studio album which is expected to release in 2018.
