Biography[edit]

Born Victor I. Hoagland Sr., in New Brunswick, New Jersey, United States, to a Cuban father and a mother of American Indian descent, Lands formed a group at Roosevelt Junior High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey that was called TNB (The New Brunswick) Dynaflows.

His recording career spanned from the late 1950s on into the mid-1970s, recording a few duets with Lily Field. He made appearances in England shortly before his death in 2002, in Orange, New Jersey, following heart surgery.

His grandson is the recording artist Jaheim.
