Gabriel Garzón-Montano Impresses Toronto With Soulful Set Opening for Kali Uchis, Garzón-Montano's Rebel Set Showcased His Versatility
“… Prior to the Columbian-American chanteuse taking the stage, the music for the evening was kicked off by Gabriel Garzón-Montano. A New York City based singer/songwriter who also happens to be a strong multi-instrumentalist.
Garzón-Montano reminded me of a Latin version of Justin Timberlake. With undeniable charm and smooth vocals to boot, Garzón-Montano gave a strong performance that would serve as the perfect starter for the seductive sounds to come. A very soulful and worthy addition to Uchis’s entourage. I particularly enjoyed his opener, “Golden Wings”, which displayed Garzón-Montano’s talents as not only killer vocalist, but also an accomplished guitarist who can jam the funk with ease.
Following his performance, he sincerely thanked the crowd, proclaiming how much love he felt in his heart for their attention. It was great to see so many come out early and give Garzón-Montano the attention he deserves. Any lover of smooth, straight-forward, funky, pop better keep an eye on this guy because he is on track to light up the scene …”
