Christopher Gallant, who simply goes by the stage name Gallant, brought Jhene Aiko out for a duet on Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls” during his debut set at Coachella last year and became the talk of the festival. Less than a year later, he’s garnered a Grammy Award nomination and critical acclaim.

That might be the basis for a story of overnight success, but the 24-year-old singer has already been performing at small clubs around Los Angeles after moving from New York three years earlier, determined to launch a career in music.

Gallant released a number of tracks on YouTube and won the attention of manager Jake Udell of Th3rd Brain. The gigs, at small but important clubs like The Bootleg and Satellite, took a while to build – the singer says he performed for as few as four people in the beginning.

The shows may have been small, but they were important. Agent Tom Windish saw Gallant and spread the word.

“Tom called me after seeing Gallant support a show at The Bootleg and told me I needed to check the next show out,” Paradigm agent Christine Cao told Pollstar. “When I got to the venue, all that was on the stage was a small TV playing static and Gallant. The setup was so simple, but yet it was clear that his ability to convey emotion through his stage presence and voice was one of a kind.”

In the meantime, Gallant continued to release tracks through David Dann’s Mind of a Genius label, finally landing at Warner Bros. and releasing his full-length debut Ology with its hit single “Weight In Gold.” Gallant ended 2016 a Grammy nominee for best urban contemporary album along with such superstars as Beyoncé and Rihanna.

Cao and Windish are taking great care to build Gallant’s tour itinerary for 2017. “Every show booked has a purpose behind it,” Cao said. “The plays confirmed in 2017 will not only provide his core audience opportunities to see Gallant perform, but it will allow for a different audience to see him for the first time.

“All that you need to do to become a Gallant fan is see him live.”
