On the heels of his critically acclaimed debut album Jardín released earlier this year, Brooklyn singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano releases the Jardín (Instrumentals) LP today on Stones Throw Records. Highlighting the album’s intricate production, the instrumental version showcases Gabriel as a masterful songwriter/producer and further establishes him as one of 2017’s biggest breakout talents.
Dubbed one of the “Best Albums Of 2017” by Billboard and Okayplayer, Jardín received accolades from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, and saw Gabriel performing on NPR’s Tiny Desk shortly after its release.
On Jardín, Gabriel tracked drums, bass, guitar, piano, and synthesizers direct to 2″ tape, adding percussion, digital programming, and several layers of his own vocals to create a lush sonic environment alongside analog guru Henry Hirsch. Exhibiting a compositional craftsmanship, the album confirms Garzón-Montano’s innate pop sensibilities and his indisputable knack for fusing a wide range of classic influences and cutting-edge ideas to create a sound all his own.
Following a headlining tour earlier this year including support dates with Miguel and Robert Glasper Experiment, Gabriel will bring Jardín around the world once more. Upcoming world tour dates include Spain, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Mexico, and a special New York show on 12/8 at Villain.
