Bryan Gallo is a Long Island based singer-songwriter who is inspired by 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 career as a performing singer-songwriter 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.
He's been the opening act for notable artists such as Steve Wynn of The Dream Syndicate & The Baseball Project fame and Bobby Bare Jr. Gallo has headlined the Patchogue Theatre's Live In The Lobby series to much acclaim and has played many other storied venues across Long Island including the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, the historic Guild Hall, multiple performances as part of the Montauk Music Festival. He has also performed a much celebrated set at the 2014 Great South Bay Music Festival. Not always confined to the island that he calls home, Bryan has performed at notable NYC based venues including Pianos, Arlene's Grocery, and The Mercury Lounge. Whether it be an intimate gig at a tavern or cafe or on a large stage setting under the lights, Bryan's words and melodies stick with audiences long after the show is over.
Gallo's debut album, The Party Guest, was released on October 23rd, 2014. The Party Guest is a defining statement that encompasses several genres and shows promise for this up and coming Singer/Songwriter. On November 27th 2015 he released a holiday themed EP titled Santa Songs that included three original compositions and his take on two Christmas classics.
Bryan is planning on recording and releasing new material this year. You can hear a brand new song of his titled County Fair on this episode of Long Island Music Spotlight.
