In The Room (with Gallant)

Gallant not only landed himself a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, but can also boast a testimonial from Elton John, who said, “When I hear his voice, I just lose it.” Over the past two years, Gallant started a project titled “In The Room” where he has collaborated with vocal powerhouses including Seal, John Legend, Andra Day, and more. These collaborations are nothing short of remarkable, and it is so interesting to see how Gallant is able to complement such a diverse range of artists. These are a few of my favorites.
