Bryan Gallo is a Long Island based singer-songwriter inspired by late nights in bars, the backseats of cars, and the pressures and consequences of living life romantically. Intrigued by both the sounds of alternative country-rock and wistful pop music he embarked on a solo career and began to pen songs that would be deeply personal but still readily accessible. Steeped in reflective heartache, the lexicon of Gallo’s lyrics stands as a testament to his raw talent as a musician while weaving a flush and relatable narrative.
Gallo’s highly anticipated debut album, The Party Guest, was released on October 23rd, 2014. Pete Mancini of the Bellerose, NY based Alt-Country band Butchers Blind served as producer for the album with the entirety of Butchers Blind serving as the backing band. The album was recorded and mixed in a remote East Hampton cottage by Mick Hargreaves via his Lantern Sound Recording Rig. Hargreaves looked to capture the band over the course of several extended sessions with many of the tracks being recorded as live takes, and all those involved using the cottage as both recording space and clubhouse. The end result is a record that doesn’t stray from Bryan’s singer/songwriter sensibilities all while stacking on some true Rock and Roll. The Party Guest is a defining statement that encompasses several genres and shows promise for this up and coming Singer/Songwriter.
