After the release of "Keep What's Left" in 2004, D. Landry & the Dirty Cajuns found themselves on the pages of Magazines & websites worldwide. From Americana.uk's Pete Gow calling the Album, "the equivalent of the Lomax field recordings for the 21st Century." to The Oxford American proclaiming "Sometimes an inspired amateur can achieve an originality that veteran competence forbids." ,the young songwriter quickly made a name for himself & began touring. The follow-up was pushed back in the wake of the Hurricanes Katrina & Rita giving way to the "Hurricane Companion & Tailgaten Relief EP" (2006). It debuted 11th on the Euro-Americana chart & landed his band on the House of Blues website as "Ones to Watch".
In that time Landry was fortunate enough to share a stage with songwriters & storytellers Billy Joe Shaver, Charlie Louvin, Dwight Yoakam, Texas country acts including Robert Earl Keen, Cross Canadian Ragweed, & Randy Rogers, Rockers like Johnny Winter, Hank 3, Sonny Landreth, and countless others.
After touring from the Catskills to the Redwoods Landry returned to Louisiana to record, "Sharecropper's Whine". During this transformation from storyteller to musician filmmaker josh Hyde chronicled his progression in the james dupreDocumentary film "Last Man Standin". The CD will serve as the soundtrack to the film.
Full of autobiographical stories told in Landry's go for broke style- THIS IS A ROCK ALBUM - some tracks beautiful & endearing, while others are unapologetically edgy and political. You can find glimpses of his influences and the places he has been. Drew says, "It's a broken hearted protest record, but I think it still it leaves people with the hope that we can learn from our mistakes."
