Singer-songwriter Christopher Gallant was born in Maryland and is now based in Los Angeles. Last year the New Musical Express called him ‘the voice that will redefine R&B’. Gallant’s music truly can best be described as future soul in which he is the bridge between old school lyrics and innovative productions. The 24-year-old American studied music at the famous NYU, where he even took extra summer classes to help him develop as an artist. At that time, Gallant strongly rebelled against the traditional R&B sound which he viewed as easy listening. He later found inspiration in the progressive rock of bands like Radiohead and Incubus. You can hear the result on his recently released debut Ology (2016) which includes the hit Weight In Gold, recorded during his own In The Room video series with his idol Seal. Gallant is an absolute must-see for fans of soulful R&B with an alternative twist.
