Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.'s fans can breathe a little easier. The Logan native and "America's Got Talent" winner released his debut album, "That's Life," on Monday. His first outing is a collection of the kinds of songs that made the 37-year-old a talent show champion.
Released by Columbia Records, "That's Life" is a victory lap for the car-wash attendant-turned-singer as well as a valentine to the music that catapulted him to fame. There's plenty of swagger and swing to songs made nearly immortal by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.
It's an upbeat record, sticking to the feel-good sunny side of the street. Most of the songs are about falling in love, being in love and doing things "My Way." All of the songs Murphy sang during the competition are represented here.
