From the foot of Mount Tamalpais, just north of San Francisco and east of the Pacific shore, to East Nashville’s stubbornly independent community of young artists and musicians, singer-songwriter Don Gallardo’s path has always steered clear of the mainstream.

Traces of his journey illuminate his newest album. Begin with its title, Still Here, an assertion that he has learned from life and expressed its lessons in songs. Many have taken note already, including:
MOJO Magazine (“Gallardo nods to country’s most distant past while sounding like its very near future”)
No Depression (“highly recommended to fans of great songwriters”)
Rolling Stone, who most recently heralded him as one of “10 Artists You Need To Know” in 2017.

Still Here leaves us with the knowledge that Gallardo touches us as few artists of our time can do.

To longtime listeners, this is hardly news. But Still Here represents something new for Gallardo, a corner turned and a step taken upward toward a new level of creativity. “On every record I’ve released until now, I’ve written everything on my own except for a song here or there,” he says. “For this one, I wanted to step out of that box.”
So, all but two songs on Still Here were by Gallardo and a co-writer. Significantly, each is as personal as anything else in his catalogue. “I didn’t change much in the way I approached these
songs,” he points out. “What changed was the way I approach a melody. I wanted to sing melodies that weren’t like the ones I normally write. I did this to become a better singer. So I reached out to some songwriters I really like.”

With his writing and performing partners, Gallardo achieved something rare with Still Here: a perfect flow of diverse stories into a single emotional statement.

​In addition to catching one of his live shows, fans can hear Gallardo's music prominently featured in fi the television series "The Vampire Diaries," ABC / CMT's "Nashville," and Netflix series "The Ranch."
