Closer You Get the Better I Look
GALLOWAY is a two piece project of singer/songwriter guitarist Alan Galloway. Alan is a founding member of Wellington's (New Zealand) long standing pop/rock group Let's Planet. As a member of Let's Planet, Alan has supported international artists such as REM, Crowded House, Throwing Muses and Paul Kelly. After recording 3 critically acclaimed albums, both nationally and internationally with Let's Planet, Alan embarked on an album called GALLOWAY as he had a handful of songs based around the acoustic guitar that were not entirely suited to Planet's sound or format. Teaming up with singer/percussionist Mo Blishen, from Wellington NZ band The Trephines, Madlight and Fragile, GALLOWAY commenced performing around the North and South Islands of New Zealand to good response. They have continued to do so on a regular basis over the last 3 to 4 years. Strong on melody, and interesting lyrically, the GALLOWAY sound centres on an entwining of male/female vocals with a strong acoustic accompaniment. GALLOWAY are primarily an originals band and are promoting their six song EP/CD "The closer you get the better I look", recently released on Twanghead Records Alan. Galloway@xtra. Co.nz.
