Gardner is also currently hard at work on his new album, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut, Adventures in Real Time. Co-produced by Gardner and Jack Dragonetti (The Submarines, Jack Drag), Adventures is a stellar showcase for the 19-year-old Illinois native’s brisk hooks, high-spirited melodies, and a musical eclecticism that reflects his deep love for his pop-rock predecessors, including The Beatles, Ben Folds, and Vampire Weekend. Gardner first began to attract attention with the album’s opening track “Let’s Get Started” when he put it up on Spotify last year. After being included on a popular playlist called “Smart Is The New Sexy,” the track caught fire and began racking up plays. (It is now over seven million.)
