YVETTE LANDRY grew up in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, not far from the levees of the Atchafalaya Basin, North America’s largest swampland. It was in and around that swamp where she learned an appreciation for the music, dance, stories and language of her Cajun culture. After earning a master’s degree in education and developing a successful teaching career, she began telling stories through song. Playing a variety of instruments in several Cajun bands, Landry also fronts her own band, The Yvette Landry Band. Her debut album “should have known” was named Offbeat magazine’s “best country/folk album” and Landry “best country/folk artist”. Playing all over from the Jazz Fest in New Orleans to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and has graced stages with such greats as Vince Gill &the time jumpers, Darrell Scott, Rhonda Vincent and many more. Her latest project , Yvette Landry &the Jukes, “Louisiana Lovin’” featuring Roddie Romero will take you back to a time where dance halls and Juke Joints in Louisiana were the place to be.
