Alternative R&B artist Gallant, born Christopher Gallant, is known for a striking falsetto that he utilizes over drawn-out synthesizer lines and pointed electronic beats. A native of Maryland, he attended New York University and relocated to Los Angeles following graduation.

Across 2013 and 2014, Gallant self-released a series of dusky single tracks, as well as an EP, Zebra. Having impressed Jake Udell, manager of EDM acts Krewella and ZHU, Gallant then associated with Mind of a Genius, the 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. The 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. Ology was later nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards. In 2018, Gallant joined Niia on the single "Constantly Dissatisfied" and teamed up with A$AP Ferg and VanJess for "In the Room: Doesn't Matter." (Source: AllMusic)
Gallant shared the stage with Sabrina Claudio at Emo's Austin. The band continues across the United Stated with the last stop at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 7, 2019.
