Video: Gizmo – “Love Song #3″ (Meshell Ndegeocello Cover)


We met bassist and singer Gizmo last year at HarlemStage when he was part of the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble shredding it up. To our surprise, we recently also found that homeboy is also a singer – and a pretty good one, at that. The 21-year old does a marvelous job above at covering Meshell Ndegeocello’s “Love Song #3.” Quite rad to see a dude singing her parts – it works well. Big kudos to Gizmo.

Gizmo also recently released his Derrick Hodge (Robert Glasper Experiment) produced debut album, Red Balloon, which features a gang of dope artists including Casey Benjamin (Robert Glasper Experiment / Q-Tip), Jamire Williams, Anna Wise of Sonnymoon, amongst several others.
