Watch Gabriel Garzón-Montano's Raw 'Tiny Desk Concert' Performance
NPR‘s Tiny Desk Concert returns today with a spotlight on Stones Throw‘s new r&b dreamweaver, Gabriel Garzón-Montano. As he continues to map the globe in support of the new album Jardin, GGM slips into solo mode with a raw and cathartic performance from behind Bob Boilen’s workstation, accompanied by a lone piano. Garzón-Montano played three selections from the new album along with his Drake-amplified 2014 smash, “6 8.” The vocalist grunts and moans and smothers each ivory touch with grace and butter-smoothness for almost 20 minutes straight, no pause, powering through a set that worse his nerves and vulnerability on its sleeve.
Press play down below and let Gabriel Garzon-Montano’s Tiny Desk Concert wash over you on this lovely cap to the work week. Scroll on to peep his full touring itinerary and grab your copy of Jardin on iTunes today. Head over to Stones Throw to cop the album on vinyl.
