Gizmo Varillas, the UK based Spanish singer songwriter, has created a genre elusive sound that accessibly merges his incredibly varied pool of musical influences and endless list of instruments he uses. With a timely message that will resonate with many, he creates a powerful combination of simple but profound Marley-esque lyrics driven by Paul Simon melodies, John Frusciante guitars and so many Latin and afro influences it is hard to name them all.
Off the back of his widely acclaimed third album ‘Out Of The Darkness’, he has emerged from his home studio onto the global indie scene!
From sound-tracking hit shows on Netflix and Apple TV to contributing co-writes and productions for chart topping albums not only in the UK (Jack Savoretti’s Europiana) but across the Atlantic in Canada (Bobby Bazini’s Move Away) he is mainly known for his collaborations with the legendary Tony Allen and Baio (Vampire Weekend) and can be heard on radio stations from LA to Japan via Athens.
Gizmo is currently working on his new album with more news to follow shortly.
