About Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
Landau is the season six winner of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”, securing the largest vote total in the show’s history.

Landau has released three successful albums including his Columbia Records debut “That’s Life” (November 2011) which spent several weeks atop the Billboard jazz charts. “Christmas Made for Two” (December 2013), Landau’s special holiday CD mixes classic and brand-new original holiday favorites was designed as a fundraising vehicle for The Children’s Home Society charity in West Virginia. “Landau” (December 2016) produced by Grammy winner Jeff Weber includes his signature take on popular Great American Songbook standards and updated versions of classic R&B, with what Landau calls a “Big Band twist,” plus Landau’s first-ever original compositions co-written with several Grammy-winning songwriters. The album was recorded at the famed Capitol Records Studio “B,” home to Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Nat “King” Cole and Dean Martin.
