“The Mexican John Mayer”
Singer-Songwriter Gustavo Galindo received his first Grammy nomination for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards in the category, Best Latin Pop, Rock or Urban Album for his debut album, ‘Entre La Ciudad Y El Mar”.
In both style and appearance he is a “Mexican John Mayer” type with a beautiful smile and a fresh personality.Unrestricted by language or genre, Gustavo’s sound reflects his upbringing between two countries — Mexico and the US — and two cultures.
Multiple Oscar and Grammy winner, Gustavo Santaolalla, alongside Aníbal Kerpel and Adrián Sosa — also known for producing top artists such as Café Tacvba, Julieta Venegas, Juanes, and Molotov — produced the album. It features the singles “Te Perdí”, “Barco de Papel”, and his latest single, “Amor de Alta Mar” composed by Galindo, himself, and also produced by the masterful team.
Gustavo shared with us that he was driving on the 405 freeway when he received the nomination call for his Spanish language, rock/pop debut album. “Being nominated for a Grammy in the category for best Latin Album was truly an amazing surprise. I feel incredibly happy and honored to be nominated and to have it be alongside artists I admire is amazing. I share this nomination with my producers Adrian Sosa, Anibal Kerpel and Gustavo Santaolalla who helped me make “Entre La Ciudad y El Mar” and everyone who has been there since the beginning”, commented Galindo about his nomination.
