GALLIE (IRE)

Highly acclaimed Irish singer songwriter, Gallie, was nominated as a finalist for the International Song of the Year competition by Tom Waits.  

 

Born in Dublin city, Ireland, in the seventies, Gallie busked all over Ireland, navigating ‘the streets’, something he now reflects on as having provided him with a wealth of material for songs and stories that he continues to draw from. 

 

Gallie has supported an impressive line-up of international acts— Glen Hansard & The Frames, Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan, KT Tunstall, Glen Tilbrook, Squeeze, Newton Faulkner. Australian stalwart singer-songwriter Steve Pigram, recorded one of Gallie’s songs which he titled “Walking Blues”. Gallie features this work on his latest album.

 

Gallie will release his second album in 2023 and presents this new work at Port Fairy Folk Festival 2023.
