Worldwide touring artist Don Gallardo hails from a small town in Northern California, and spent years cultivating his career on the west coast before relocating to Nashville in 2007. Walking the line between classic rock, retro singer-songwriter, and more contemporary flavors of folk and Americana, Gallardo is a diverse and multi-faceted performer with a lyrical depth and warm and unique vocal style which helps him weave between genres and provides an immediate relatability. With three full-lengths, a live album, and an EP under his belt, as well as a fourth full-length on the way, Gallardo has already achieved critical praise, and has had his work prominently featured in films, "Jolene" & also Jackass Presents "Bad Grandpa" and the highly popular television series, "The Vampire Diaries" & ABC's "Nashville". A seasoned performer himself, Don’s backing band, How Far West, also includes an impressive and road-worn panel of players.
NEW ALBUM slated for release in 2015
Don has begun to work on a brand new album slated for release in 2015 tentatively titled, “Hickory”. He roughly recorded 16 songs prior to his Summer July 2014 UK Tour. Upon returning to Nashville he went into the studio again to choose and record some demos of the best of the 16 songs. He is working with Producer David Pinkston who has engineered hundreds of records and worked with a number of legends such as The Allman Brothers, Marshal Tucker Band, Kansas, Linda Ronstadt, Delbert McClinton & Gretchen Peters. Don & David have teamed up hoping to make Don’s breakthrough album. They have hired on veteran drummer, Brad Pemberton who played & recorded with Ryan Adams for 6 years from “Demolition” album and through all the Cardinals albums. Brad has also played with Patty Griffin, Willie Nelson and Brendan Benson. There will be more notable players involved in this album to be named at a later date as the project evolves.
