Biography

Gustavo Galindo’s music is a reflection of his life’s journey between two countries and two cultures. Born in Mexico City in the early 1980s, his childhood included several years living in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, followed by a period living with his cousins in Mexico City, and then a stint in Sacramento. When south of the border, family get-togethers would, without fail, turn into Mexican music jams of everything from ranchera to pop. North of the border, Gustavo majored in International Relations — but his real education took place in the record store, where he was drawn to artists like Maná, La Ley, Juanes, Soda Stereo, Ozomatli, Joaquín Sabina and Molotov who were redefining “Latin” music by embracing influences from all over the world.
Not restricted by language or genre, Gustavo’s sound is a combination of traditional and
contemporary Mexican and American styles. Gustavo writes and performs both in English and Spanish. In 2008, he released his first Spanish-language EP, La Ciudad, catching the attention of many, including Adrián Sosa, Anibal Kerpel and multi-Grammy and Oscar winning legend Gustavo Santaolalla of the Surco label. Gustavo was signed to Universal Latino/Surco in 2009, where the Santaolalla/Sosa team- the producers behind other inspirations for Gustavo, such as Café Tacuba, Julieta Venegas, Juanes and Molotovproduced his full-length debut, Entre la Ciudad y el Mar. The first single, Te Perdí, is now available digitally.
