Tom Waits voted him as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, Renee Geyer has approached him to cover his song ‘Anybody Seen’, Stephen Pigram recorded his song ‘Look Away (Walking Blues)’ and he got a standing ovation when he nailed ‘Hurricane ‘before full houses at Melbourne’s Dylan tribute BOBFEST - with everyone wanting to know his name. Gallie is an exceptional singer/songwriter.
Tom Waits once said “The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is destroying the quality of our suffering;” the very same Tom Waits which then went on to vote Gallie into the finalists of the International Songwriting Contest
Gallie’s original songs contribute his own colour to a significantly rich canvas that echo the influence of legendary Irish forefathers such as Van Morrison, and extend a warm handshake to American soul and blues ambassadors such as Bill Withers.
Gallie’s 20-year musical career has also seen him open for an impressive line-up of international acts. These include Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan, KT Tunstall, Glen Tilbrook, Squeeze, Newton Faulkner, Glen Hansard and The Frames. He has shared the stage with luminaries such as Santana, Chris Isaak and Jimmy Cliff and some of Australia’s greats Liz Stringer, Suzannah Espie, Chris Wilson and Shane Howard.
He is in demand on the Festival circuit having played the Port Fairy, Yackandandah and Fleurieu,
Folk Festivals, Moyston Music Fest, Deni Blues and Roots Festival and the Turning Wave Festival.
We are privileged and delighted to welcome Gallie to the BUg stage.
