Levis welcomes Irish born, contemporary troubadour, Gallie, whose live performances that have been getting him an incredible reputation as a powerhouse performer and songwriter. Whether it's solo, with his full band, in a small venue or large festival, he delivers a performance that has a sonic quality, intimacy and an emotional experience that has been leaving audiences wanting more.
It's these performances that has made him a favourite at many festivals over
the last couple of years, including Queenscliff Music Festival, Yackandandah
and The National Celtic Festival.
"It's these years of being on the road and the people I've met, the experiences
I've had, that all creep into the songs".
He finally managed to stay in one place long enough to record and release 'The
Occoquan River' and it's this release that has seen Gallie garnish an
evergrowing and devout following. In one week alone his video for the song
'Long May Your Days Be Gold' got over 30,000 views on facebook.
On the strength of this release Gallie has been selling out shows up and down
the East coast and is set to return to Europe with dates planned for Ireland,
England and France.
A natural storyteller, and gifted songwriter, every performance is different,
sprinkled between the songs are stories about growing up in Dublin, his travels
on the road, the people he has met, and the loves lost and found.
“One of the outstanding releases this year....’The Occoquan River’
“Sublime lyrics, tremendous melodies, sung by a singer with a
voice that is both soulful and incredibly expressive.....One of my
favourite records of 2015 by an artist from any country,” Michael
Park, The International Americana Show, New York City
Playing on the night as a duo with Shane Fitzsimons.
