Talking to himself....
Born in the nations capital, Gallant breaks outdated social archetypes as a male vocalist who wears the duality of raw vulnerability and inspiring strength on his sleeve. His introspective lyrics and superhuman falsetto encaptures multiple generations, all moved by his timeless talents that shape his poetic self-reflection in this attention-deficit society.
Labeled as the "breakthrough artist of 2015" and "the voice that will redefine R&B" by Billboard and NME respectively, the young Los Angeles artist identifies his music as future soul, bridging contemporary productions with old school songwriting. His first single for the critically acclaimed album - Ology, "Weight in Gold," was handpicked by the esteemed Zane Lowe as the "Single of the Week" during Apple Music's widely anticipated launch.
Selected to play with Elton John and at the White House, Gallant became music's worst kept secret, and his personal project, the 'In the Room' original live performance series, attracted household names like Sufjan Stevens, Seal, Patrick Stump, and more. Soon, coverage from publications like The Fader, Pitchfork, and Entertainment Weekly catapulted him into the conversation as the next breakthrough artist to watch in 2016.
On December 6th, Ology was nominated for a Grammy as the Best Urban Contemporary Album of 2016. Just days into the new year, Gallant was also named a Forbes "30 Under 30 of 2017" and became the featured nominee for music.
