Gabriel Garzón-Montano Puts Us Up On ‘The Game’


Bounce-Worthy artist Gabriel Garzón-Montano is readying his debut album, Jardin, for release in the new year. The Brooklyn-born singer/songwriter has already impressed us with the first single from the project, “Sour Mango,” an amusing ditty about love lost. Now he’s ready to dish out some real talk on dealing with our anxieties, insecurities and all of life’s challenges on “The Game.”

“Do you worry about everything? / Afraid you ain’t got the tight game / Do you feel just a little too plain? / Worry you don’t have tight game / You…. compare yourself to what’s his name?” Mr. Garzón-Montano teasingly sings over a bass-led soundbed of chimes, drums and lullaby-esque runs. However, instead of languishing in life's troubles, Gabriel encourages us to stay positive. According to the artist, "We all play the game. We can make the best of it and we can make the worst of it. I wrote this as a reminder not to take myself so seriously. It's easy to grow solemn and boring! This song says be brave and show your joy and give your love. Have a heart like a tangerine. You don't have to lose the game.”

In addition to the fun and optimistic “The Game,” Gabriel promises to deliver more songs to get us in and out of our feelings on Jardin, when it drops January 27, 2017. The project promises to deliver a seamless fusion of neo-soul, pop and funk that shows off the formidable skills of the multi-instrumentalist. In addition to dropping his album in the new year, he will also be touring in support of the project.
