New York Streets, outer space, and white sand beaches seem miles away when said out loud. Created in 2010, All Year Summer provides that sonic link between reality and fantasy. Having started their performing careers escaping detention to audition for their high school play, Bronx natives Miguel “MG” Gallardo and Chris Toro would have never imagined forging a rap duo years later, creating cinematic videos and performing all over NYC.
While staying true to their Latin roots – MG is Colombian/Puerto Rican and Chris is Puerto Rican/Dominican – the duo’s sound and lyrics have evolved over the years. Having worked with their tight-knit crew of diverse producers hailing from Puerto Rico, Africa, and New York City, the group introduces listeners to their experimental world of blending musical genres.
Their dynamic songs and music videos have landed them in several notable publications such as MTVU, Arcade 44, El Diario and aired nationally on Fox 5’s LatiNation television show.
Known for their authentic and high-energy performances, All Year Summer has blazed a trail in New York City, performing at reputable venues such as BB King Blues Club, Webster Hall, SOB’s, House of Vans, United Palace Theater and Nuyorican Poet’s Café.
