Gallant Grammy Nomination

Gallant’s debut studio album, “Ology”, was met with critical acclaim receiving a grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. The album features the track “Skipping Stones’, which was recorded with Jhene Aiko at the Red Bull Studios Los Angeles. NPR had the following to say about the album; 'it’s “Skipping Stones” that feels like the moment when the various discrepancies melt into something greater than the ingredients. Gallant’s falsetto comes ripping out of his throat, naturally intense – they are anchored and dragged slightly by the drums, which makes the performance even more of a feat. Jhene Aiko is on-hand to perform the role of traditional femininity, but the song feels like a true back-in-the-day duet: the two are singing to each other. The voices are used here to manipulate us physiologically, the same way software can. It’s classic’. Gallant has been part of the Red Bull Sound Select program since 2014 and will return to Red Bull Studios Los Angeles in February to record his sophomore album.
