Don Gallardo w/ The Battlefield
Don Gallardo w/ The Battlefield
Don Gallardo
--------------
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 five 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. 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. His newest album is coming out on Rock Ridge Music on April 27, 2018.

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," ABC's “Nashville,” and Netflix series “The Ranch."
