Gabriel Garzón-Montano was born in New York City to French and Colombian parents. His music is gorgeous: woozy, psychedelic and soulful. His debut EP, Bishouné: Alma Del Huila, was released on a small label — but the right people heard it. Mayer Hawthorne played it for the folks at Stones Throw Records, which is releasing Garzón-Montano's new album, Jardín. Lenny Kravitz heard it and asked Garzón-Montano to open for his European tour. And oh yeah, Drake even sampled it.

Hear two tracks from Jardín, released in January, in this segment.
