Kick Off the Weekend with Gabriel Garzón-Montano on Friday Night

July 27th, 2016

Gabriel Garzón-Montano is a musician’s musician: He sings, he composes and he plays the violin, guitar, drums, piano and bass, plus he’s even been sampled by Drake. Following the release of the soul-and R&B-inflected Bishouné: Alma del Huila (stream it below) in 2014—about which, CMJ opined, “This promising young artist touches on love and loss, and always buttressed with a sly bit of vintage style”—the multitalented New Yorker toured across Europe opening for Lenny Kravitz. But the energetic performer (above, doing “Everything Is Everything” for Brownswood Basement Sessions) is the headliner when he stays home in Brooklyn to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night. Nick Hakim and Space People open the show.
