A child of immigrant parents - a child of Brooklyn, NY - Gabriel Garzón-Montano's aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, a pastiche of Bach sonatas, cumbia records, and the machine gun funk that echoes from behind half-rolled tints up-and-down Nostrand Ave. He sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the multilayered game that is America today; from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first-generation citizens, to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one's own mind.
Gabriel Garzón-Montano's forthcoming album will be released by Jagjaguwar in conjunction with Stones Throw. This follows the critically lauded Jardín which The New York Times called "sinuous future-soul music". Billboard, which called Jardín "a genre-flaunting gem," included it on its best of 2017 albums list as did NPR, Mixmag, Mojo, KCRW and more. His music has been sampled by Drake and H.E.R.
