World Cafe Next: Gabriel Garzon-Montano

The R&B singer's sound has captivated Mayer Hawthorne, Lenny Kravitz and Drake. Hear two tracks from his new album, Jardín.
Gabriel Garzón-Montano was born in New York City to French and Colombian parents. His music is gorgeous: woozy, psychedelic and soulful. His debut EP was released on a small label - but the right people heard it. Mayer Hawthorne played it for the folks at Stones Throw Records, which is releasing Garzon-Montano's new album, Jardín. Lenny Kravitz heard it and asked Garzon-Montano to open for his European tour. And oh yeah, Drake even sampled it.
