Joplin native and pop singer Grant Landis returns home to perform

You may know this, but May 1st,2017 in Joplin is Grant Landis Day. The Proclamation was made by former Mayor Mike Seibert and other council members in 2017.

“It’s overwhelming a little bit. I didn’t really expect this at all. And I didn’t really know what a proclamation was until today, so it’s very cool to be recognized by the city of Joplin like this,” Landis told KOAM/FOX14 in 2017.

By that time, Landis was five years into his music career.

According to Connect2Culture, “After discovering a passion for music and performing, Grant began posting acoustic cover videos on the social sharing site Vine. After building a huge and active following, Grant continued to build his following with YouTube, Instagram, and more. Based on a solid social fan base, Grant joined the popular DigiTour which brings social media stars to the stage, and toured across the country. After a successful DigiTour, Grant launched his own headline tour playing to sold out shows across North America. Lifetime Television invited him to appear on the first season of The Pop Game – to compete alongside other up and coming artists while being mentored by mega producer, songwriter, and performer Timbaland. Consequently, Grant was signed to a singles deal with Mosely Music Group, Timbaland’s label. The single “Another Life” (2018) is the first release from that collaboration. Grant continues to write and perform. With a 2018 move to Nashville, Tennessee, Grant is poised to write the next chapter in his career.”

But he doesn’t forget his hometown, where his family still resides. Grant is the son of Michael and Brandi Landis and is the olders of their three sons.

As part of Connect2Culture’s Curtains Up Series, Landis will be the last one performing on April 13th, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at Joplin Memorial Hall.
