Open Kimono

MUSIC FOR THE PRESENT TENSE

Open Kimono is Pierre de Gaillande's latest musical project, showcasing his current solo songwriting output as well as ongoing performances with past and current collaborators. Open Kimono draws from de Gaillande's songbook and personnel from his previous bands Melomane, Sea Foxx, and The Snow. Cinematic art-rock, chamber-pop, smart and catchy indie-folk, these are all words used to describe Pierre's music.
