Black Cat Music presents… Don Gallardo + Luke Tuchscherer
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
One of “Best Country Music Albums of 2015” with the likes of Jason Isbell, Gretchen Peters, Justin Townes Earle, Patty Griffin, Kasey Musgraves, Willie & Merle, Chris Stapleton & more – The Telegraph
Featured artist in article “Why East Nashville Was More Hot Than Hip in 2015” – Rolling Stone
DON GALLARDO was 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 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 Country, 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). Hickory was named one of 2015’s best country albums by The Telegraph in the company of Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Kasey Musgrave, Patty Griffin, Justin Townes Earle and more.
Gallardo’s work has been prominently featured in films “Jolene” and Jackass Presents “Bad Grandpa” as well as highly popular television series, “The Vampire Diaries” and ABC’s “Nashville.”
