EDITORS’ NOTES

Commanding and versatile, Christopher Gallant’s voice demands to be center-stage. It often had to push through an alt-R&B haze on 2014’s Zebra EP but is now set to cleaner, brighter R&B that’s literate in rock (“Talking to Myself”), slick pop (“Bourbon”) and ambient dubstep (“Open Up”). The genre-splicing always builds to a sky-scraping chorus but Gallant remains each song’s most infectious element. Unflinching in his honesty, he lays out his insecurities with a voice that shifts flawlessly from a careworn croon and aching falsetto to gale-force yearning.

Refreshing R&B and Soul . A must for your collection

Ram2009727

Gallant has given me a little more faith in today's music. This album is spectacular track by track . His sound reminds me of a modern day Prince with his almost flawless falsetto . "Open up ", "Weight in gold", "Talking to myself"and "Bourbon" are my favorites but like I said the whole album is Gold. I just saw his TV premiere on Jimmy Fallon . His style is very unique and refreshing . He will get BIG.

Loved it!

Was looking for new music, came across this album, fell in love.....it's awesome.

Watch out Maxwell

With a falsetto that rivals Maxwell and makes The Weekend (I refuse to use his misspelled version, I'm an English major and a professional writer) forgettable, Gallant is a much needed breath of fresh air in a very stale music bubble.

About Gallant

Alternative R&B artist Gallant, born Christopher Gallant, is known for a striking falsetto that he utilizes over drawn-out synthesizer lines and pointed electronic beats. A native of Maryland, he attended New York University and relocated to Los Angeles following graduation. Across 2013 and 2014, Gallant self-released a series of dusky single tracks, as well as an EP. Having impressed Jake Udell, manager of EDM acts Krewella and ZHU, Gallant then associated with Mind of a Genius, the outlet for 2015 releases "Open Up," "Talking in Your Sleep," "Learn to Fly" (a Foo Fighters cover), and "Weight in Gold." Like the earlier tracks, these songs enhanced Gallant's expressive vocals with deep-probing bass and shadowy layers of percussion and keyboards. The debut album Ology followed in 2016 along with "Skipping Stones," a single co-produced by Adrian Younge and Stint that featured guest vocalist Jhené Aiko.
