John Gallen joined us last week for the presentation of an IMRO Award in recognition of his album 1970s.
The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.
During the pandemic, the multi-instrumentalist put on his software engineer hat to build a home studio and set free the songs which have been buried deep in his soul.
John’s goal? “The ability to transport an audience to a different place, make them look through a different lens.”
Nostalgic, yet relevant. Unheard of but warmly familiar. John Gallen has been biding his time. “I think in rhyme & find melody in everything,” he explains.
Johns debut album 1970s, produced by Grammy nominated Billy Farrell, is out now.
