“A singer-songwriter that is one of the Country and Americana scene's true journeymen. Artist you need to know. His new album, Still Here, is an album rooted in persistence and purpose, with songs... shining a light on the struggle of the modern-day road warrior.” - ROLLING STONE
Don Gallardo has called Nashville home for 10 years, but his California roots shine through on current LP, STILL HERE. Gallardo weaves his 1970’s Laurel Canyon influences into a modern roots-Americana epic. Backed by Nashville Legendary musicians Dave Roe on Bass (Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson), Bryan Owings on drums (Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller), Micah Hulscher on organ/piano (Margo Price), Richard Bailey on banjo (The Steeldrivers), Joe Andrews on mandolin (Old Crow Medicine Show) and guitar legend Brent Mason, and with co-writes by the likes of Mando Saenz, Carey Ott, Tim Easton, & Robby Hecht. Don has got his heart in the East Nashville sound but his California roots are never far away.

- MOJO Magazine
"Nashville’s own singer songwriter Don Gallardo presents his own folk tinged take on alt-country and Americana combined with a retro 70’s aesthetic. Hailed by critics, Rolling Stone hailed him as, “one of Americana’s true journeyman”. Gallardo describes himself as a road warrior due to his frequent touring, and his life on the road certainly shines through his music. With musical themes that evoke images of rolling American landscapes, Don Gallardo is the perfect choice to throw on any road trip playlist."

"If you appreciate the good stuff- the stand by artists and albums that never let you down: Wilco, Beatles, The Band, Neil Young, Bob Dylan. There is enough complicated listening out there and our ears deserve something that’s righteous, honest and ballsy in just the right spots and Gallardo nails that equation"
