We were lucky enough to get up with quickly rising singer Gallant at CRSSD Fest in San Diego this past weekend. We really dig what this dude is up to right now and have been eagerly following him since his early work with Felix Snow (produced much of SZA's first EP). With the voice of an angel, he has been making major waves across the scene—from his recent collaboration with labelmate Zhu (on Mind of a Genius), to getting love from Elton John, or his song "Weight in Gold" pushing 2.5 million plays on Soundcloud... Gallant is officially popping up on the collective musical radar. He kindly invited our creative director Grant Spanier to spend the day with him in sunny San Diego (95 degrees to be exact, homie).

Gallant hits the road starting Oct. 24th for a national tour with Sufjan Stevens. Keep an eye out for this guy, and if he's anywhere near you, I suggest you go to a show & find out what the (much deserved) hype is all about.
