I must be dreaming right now, because one of the most talented artists with the most sensational voices to come out of the emerging act pool of 2015 has teamed up with a long time brilliant favorite for this amazing cover video. Los Angeles’ Gallant, one of my top ten artists to watch of 2016, covers Sufjan Stevens’ Blue Bucket Of Gold alongside Sufjan himself for the first in a series of collaborative videos Gallant is releasing. He aims to pay tribute to and create something special with the artists that inspired him most. Why am I not surprised that the great Sufjan is an influence on Gallant? Take a deep breath before you dive into this first episode of In The Room, because it might just leave you in a heap of sobbing ecstasy. After watching this many times over today, I’m about ready to crown Gallant as the best new voice in the scene right now. The Blue Bucket Of Gold cover was recorded live in one take on December 10th, 2015 in New York City. It’s also streaming exclusively on Spotify. If you pay close attention to festival news as I do, then you likely know that both Sufjan Stevens and Gallant (as well as his Mind Of A Genius label mate ZHU) are playing Coachella this April. They’re obviously acts you can’t miss if you’re heading out to the desert.
