Biography
Alternative R&B artist Gallant is known for a striking falsetto that he utilizes over drawn-out synthesizer lines and pointed electronic beats. The singer and songwriter made his full-length debut with the Grammy-nominated Ology (2016), and has since issued an even more vulnerable and expressive follow-up, Sweet Insomnia (2019).

A native of Maryland, Christopher Gallant attended New York University and relocated to Los Angeles following graduation. Across 2013 and 2014, he self-released a series of dusky singles, as well as an EP, Zebra. Having impressed Jake Udell, manager of EDM acts Krewella and ZHU, Gallant then associated with David Dann's Mind of a Genius label, the Warner Bros.-supported outlet for 2015 releases "Open Up," "Talking in Your Sleep," "Learn to Fly" (a Foo Fighters cover), and "Weight in Gold." Like the earlier tracks, these songs enhanced Gallant's expressive vocals with deep-probing bass and shadowy layers of percussion and keyboards.

His debut album, Ology, followed in 2016 along with "Skipping Stones," a single co-produced by Adrian Younge and Stint that featured guest vocalist Jhené Aiko. A number 39 hit on Billboard's R&B/hip-hop chart, Ology was later nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award in the category of Best Urban Contemporary Album. A string of singles and collaborations during the next couple years led to the 2019 release of Sweet Insomnia, Gallant's second full-length, with Sabrina Claudio and 6LACK as guest vocalists. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
