Gallant is with Jana Rosenberg at Hollywire x Holonis Comic Con party in San Diego! He gave us an amazing live performance of “Weight In Gold” and his new song “Crimes”. We chat with the Grammy nominated artist about the what his songs mean to him, artists that inspire him. Plus, who he’d want to collaborate and tour with.
Gallant is an American singer-songwriter from Colombia, Maryland. Influenced by alternative rock and R&B artists while growing up, he began writing, creating, and recording music in middle school. Gallant went on to study music at New York University, moving to Los Angeles after he graduated from college in 2013. In 2014, he self-released his debut EP, Zebra, which focused on life after college. In 2015, Gallant’s fame began picking up after his single “Weight in Gold” was played on Beats1 radio and he opened for a number of artists on multiple tours. Gallant went on to perform on both weekends of Coachella 2016, which was hailed to be one of the top moments from the festival that year. In April 2016, he released his debut studio album, Ology, which received praise and acclaim for his songwriting and vocal power. You can see Gallant live on tour this fall.
