In a one-take live recording, engineered by RB Hunter, Gallant invites Jack Garratt to tribute Janet Jackson’s “I Get Lonely.” Gallant is a singer-songwriter from Maryland signed with Mind of a Genius Records and Jack Garratt is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Britain signed with Island Records. With Gallant’s moving falsetto and Jack Garratt’s flawless vocal range, the two blend their unique vocals of smooth belting and emotive runs to create a meaningful acoustic cover. While this cover features just two vocals and a guitar, it isn’t like any Youtube cover. This beautiful video is professionally produced by Peter Torres, Wade Davis, and Michael Gaertner, directed by Miles Evert and photographed by Chris Argueta.
This is the first time we see Gallant perform a cover with another artist for his In The Room series on Youtube. Gallant’s first two episodes invite Seal for “Weight in Gold” and Sufjan Stevens for “Blue Bucket of Gold,” both singles from Gallant’s album, Ology. You can still catch him live in North America, so don’t wait on the love he pours out in his music.
