Born in the nation’s capital, Gallant breaks outdated social archetypes as a male vocalist who wears the duality of raw vulnerability and inspiring strength on his sleeve. His introspective lyrics and superhuman falsetto encaptures multiple generations, all moved by his timeless talents that shape his poetic self-reflection in this attention-deficit society.
Labeled as "the voice that will redefine R&B" by NME, the young Los Angeles artist identifies his music as future soul, bridging contemporary productions with old school songwriting. The first single from his debut studio album - Ology, "Weight in Gold," was handpicked by the esteemed Zane Lowe as the "Single of the Week" during Apple Music's widely anticipated launch.
Selected to play with Elton John and at the White House, Gallant became music's worst kept secret, and his personal project, the 'In the Room' original live performance series, attracted household names like Sufjan Stevens, Seal, Patrick Stump, and more. Soon, coverage from publications like The Fader, Pitchfork, and Entertainment Weekly catapulted him into the conversation as the next breakthrough artist to watch.
The upwards trajectory of artist/producer ayokay's breakout viral summer anthem "Kings Of Summer" has been anything but by-the-book, blazing a nearly year-long path to buzz-track royalty.

The path from viral sensation to a mainstream breakthrough artist has left ayokay even more optimistic about music's ability to break down barriers. His debut EP "4ft to Infinity" will be released October 7, featuring a range of guest vocalists including Quinn XCII and emerging British singer Mafalda.
