LOS ANGELES, CA. (Top40 Charts/ By Anna Bobkowska/ Luck Media & Marketing) - No matter how addictive and edgy her songs, how crushing and intense the energy of her shows, Landon Dunning heard the same lines from skeptics from the time she started her own band in her hometown of Dallas at 16. Stuff like, 'Cute chick singer.' 'One of the guys in the group must be your boyfriend.' 'A blonde lead singer. Who writes your songs?'

Record labels and management companies loved her even back then, and many had designs on how they wanted to mold her to fit a trendy image. But Landon, true to her visionary, independent spirit, wasn't having any of it. She moved to L.A., quickly hooked up with producer Drew K (At The Drive-In, Madonna) after starting a record for Epic Records and began working on her explosive, fiercely indie debut Defying The Stereotype.

Perfectly capturing the foundational vibe of Landonband, Landon's underground unit that's taken Southern California, Arizona and her home state of Texas by storm, MMG Magazine adds, 'If Trent Reznor and Shirley Manson wrapped up...Landon would be the blood shed.' For the past two years, the band—including core members Bobby Harris and drummer Seth Rice—has played SoCal hotspots like The Gig, Knitting Factory, The Dragonfly and in San Marcos, San Diego, Tempe and Dallas.

The title Defying The Stereotype refers to Landon's bucking the system and about taking the hard road of being an indie band that refuses to conform to mainstream industry expectations. Their shows are raw, fun and they like to say, violent—but in a healthy, cool musical way.

'We're just doing our own thing here,' she says, 'and nothing we do is dependent upon whether we're signed to a major label. As musicians we're trying to find the balance between having one foot in the indie market and one foot in the mainstream market, but one thing's for sure Landonband isn't going to compromise their individual artistic evolution to conform.
