“Working with Janet was an unforgettable experience. She followed her spirit – no limits. Janet’s love for her art is evident in her impassioned musicianship and inspired songwriting. The music we created together, vibrant and full of energy, encapsulates all that she is.” -John Carter Cash (Producer, owner Cash Cabin Studios)
Don Gallardo Saturday 07th May 2016. Don was a stand out performer at last year's Maverick Festival. Just look at the quality of the reviews below:
4 of 5 Stars “Nashville Singer-songwriter continues Country’s regeneration. Gallardo nods to country’s most distant past while sounding like its very near future.” -MOJO Magazine
“Comparisons have been made between East Nashville's music scene and a Sixties Greenwich Village…In the end, however, much of East Nashville's musical core is happy about the attention — offering praise in particular to ABC's Nashville for how it allows artists to have yet another income stream in an increasingly tough market….Don Gallardo, another local artist who has seen the show help build him a solid following overseas, agrees. "Nashville was only acting on what was going on at the time and still is….it really has done a lot for me and my friends." says Gallardo, currently touring the new album Hickory.” - ROLLING STONE
One of “Best Country Music Albums of 2015” with the likes of Gretchen Peters, Justin Townes Earle, Jason Isbell, Patty Griffin, Kasey Musgraves, Willie & Merle, Chris Stapleton & more - The Telegraph
4 of 5 Stars “Gallardo is the real deal” - Maverick Magazine
“I’m really enjoying the record” - Bob Harris Country
Raised in a small town in Northern California, where he spent years building his songwriting career on the west coast before relocating to Nashville in 2007. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, he walks the line between folk, Americana and roots-rock, mining the influence of classic 1970s singer-songwriters while creating a sound that nods to the past while still pushing ahead toward something new.
With four full-length albums, a live acoustic release, and an EP under his belt, Gallardo has earned a broad audience on both sides of the Atlantic. A road warrior who frequently tours the U.K., he's also earned high marks from outlets like Rolling Stone, AmericanaUK, and The Nashville Scene, the latter of which described his music as "country-rock with brains, charm and experimental impulses that are perfectly integrated into a familiar context." No Depression offered similar praise, calling Gallardo a "rare gem" whose work is "highly recommended to fans of great songwriters."
Released in 2015 by the U.K.-based indie label Clubhouse Records, Gallardo's newest album, Hickory, received a four-star rating from MOJO Magazine and was mentioned in Rolling Stone. The project paired Gallardo with producer David Pinkston (Linda Ronstadt, Marshall Tucker Band) and a handful of A-list sidemen, including Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Rob Ickes (Merle Haggard), Randall Bramblett (Bonnie Raitt), Guthrie Trapp (Alison Krauss) Micah Hulscher (Emmylou Harris) and Brad Pemberton (Ryan Adams). Inspired by everything from Gallardo's California upbringing to his time in the American Bible Belt, Hickory was named one of 2015's best country albums by The Telegraph, proof that Gallardo's career has truly gone global.
In addition to catching one of his live shows, fans can hear Gallardo's music prominently featured in films like "Jolene" and Jackass Presents "Bad Grandpa," as well as the television series "The Vampire Diaries" and ABC's "Nashville."
