Gallant's Firefly Performances Were the Secret Treasure in the Woods

Gallant's Firefly Performances Were the Secret Treasure in the Woods

FUSE TV - Gallant's Firefly Performances Were the Secret Treasure in the Woods

Once you get a taste of Gallant’s high falsetto, you don’t want anything else. That’s why, when I was supposed to be on my way to cover Kings of Leon at Firefly Music Festival on Friday night, I was in the pit of Gallant’s second set, under a canopy of leaves and twinkly lights.

Two hours before, Christopher Gallant closed out the Porch stage for the night. Everyone I knew had planned on going, and I would meet them there, despite knowing nothing about the 24-year-old R&B singer. With beer in each hand, I watched as his voice slithered from hurt and vulnerable to straight-up pleading and atoning. It’s the kind of music that’ll have you swaying your hips and slowly running your fingers through your festival-knotted hair… and maybe crying. I became a Gallant convert by the second song.
