Mother. Artist. Abolitionist.
Co-host of cultural impact show Grow UP
I’m Landon, a musician, producer, songwriter, mother of 3, wife, & co-host of “Grow Up”. I’ve had the privilege of charting on Billboard, touring the U.S. with radio hits on KROQ, KISS FM etc. I started my own record label, publishing company and have composed music for big TV shows and at the rise of my career I began uncovering many dark truths that exist within the entertainment industry. I had the realization that my experiences along with countless others were not anomalies but part of a dark, exploitive system. These truths are no longer hidden behind the curtains of Hollywood but are verifiable open secrets.
Once I woke up, I knew I couldn’t keep my integrity by choosing to become a subservient puppet in an exploitive machine. I made the decision to leave Hollywood. Instead I chose artistic freedom, integrity and family. I never forgot about the children that were abused and all the people who participate and hide the abuse within the entertainment industry. The decision to leave opened up my creativity in ways I had never imagined. Now as an independent artist I get to create on my own terms; writing, playing and producing my own music.
All my music sales go directly towards fighting human trafficking. Every cent goes towards rescue and restoration efforts. I use my voice not just to write & create but to be an advocate for human trafficking victims and protecting children. I write, inform and speak on the issues within our culture that fuel the demand for human trafficking. I created a show centered on politics & culture with my husband Robby Starbuck where we examine how our culture & politics affect the most vulnerable & how they play into the dynamics of enabling or disabling issues like human trafficking, child abuse and exploitation.
In a time of great political divide, my hope is that we can inspire more civil discussion and debate ideas so we can work together towards effective solutions. It’s only when we’re willing to be uncomfortable that we really become capable of change. Pretty rhetoric, empathy and good intentions are not a replacement for effective action. In the quest to combat the epidemic of modern day slavery we must realize that we are defined by how we defend the defenseless. We can do more and together we will.
