Gabriel Garzón-Montano

Gabriel Garzón-Montano is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn. After the release of his debut EP Bishouné: Alma del Huila, in 2014, he earned the spotlight by opening for Lenny Kravitz’s European tour, and in 2015 he was sampled in Drake’s song “Jungle.” Garzón-Montano’s aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, which blends funk, soul and R&B. He recently wrapped up the Isolation tour in support of Kali Uchis, where he showcased his critically acclaimed debut album Jardin, released in 2017. With a wide range of music and visual influences, Garzón-Montano’s nuanced and expertly crafted fusion sound is not to be missed. 

Check out his most recent release, the chamber arrangement version of single “Golden Wings” below, and be sure to hit up his Brooklyn favorites next time you’re heading east.
