Gallant is a classic soul singer for a modern age. In 2014, he released his debut EP, Zebra, which he describes as “a sonic diary about dealing with the aftermath of New York.”
After a few collaborations with other artists, Gallant teamed up with Jhené Aiko to record “Skipping Stones.” The song combined Gallant’s signature falsetto style with Jhene’s alluring vocals to create a slow-burning groove. Following this song’s success, Gallant released his critically acclaimed debut album, Ology. The album’s success led to Gallant’s making his television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In this video, Gallant performs his song, “Weight in Gold.” He begins by singing softly while sitting on a couch and watching static on a TV. When he stands up, he excites the crowd with the full power of his magnificent voice.
