FIGFest 2018: Gabriel Garzón-Montano

FIGFest 2018: Gabriel Garzón-Montano
Celebrating its sixth year as one of DTLA’s completely free music series, the FIGat7th Downtown Festival (also known as FIGFest) will energize the city this June with eclectic sounds and fun summer nights. Presented by Arts Brookfield, the festival kicks off June 1 and runs four consecutive Friday nights at Downtown LA’s premier shopping destination, FIGat7th. This year, Spaceland Presents, LA’s leading concert promotion firm, has collaborated with Arts Brookfield to curate the lineup. The outdoor plaza at FIGat7th will be transformed into an urban concert venue and dance floor brought to life with performances by leading R&B, hip-hop, pop, soul, dance, and electronic artists.

Gabriel Garzón-Montano is a multi-instrumentalist and sing-songwriter based in New York City. Jardín comes on the heels of three intense years of touring, writing and recording. Soon after the 2014 release of his debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, Gabriel was invited out on the road by rock legend Lenny Kravitz, as direct support on 23 concerts across Europe. The day after playing Wembley Arena, he received a call notifying him that his song "6 8" would be sampled by Drake on his full‐length If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. The months following these Garzón‐Montano was featured at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, and on back-to-back tours with English indie-rockers Glass Animals and Stones Throw label mate Mayer Hawthorne. Garzón-Montano has performed at major U.S. and international venues. His music style blends R&B, soul, and funk.
