NEW 2017 2016 NEW FROM HAT CHECK GIRL POETRY BOOK

If you look at the cover of Laura Nyro’s New York Tendaberry album, I believe it is a photo of her on her penthouse terrace on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I used to go to visit her there and we’d sing new songs to each other. My latest solo project, Feels Like Religion, is inspired by and dedicated to Laura. She changed my life in countless ways, some of which took a very long time.

"Two Sides To Every Story" isn't just the title of the new album by Peter Gallway and Annie Gallup, it's the concept too. Joined by the legendary Jerry Marotta on drums, the Santa Barbara-based duo's sixth album is collection of ten songs, written in pairs with the couple alternating lead vocals, each of the five chapters separated by a brief musical interlude with them coming together to duet on the epilogue. As the title suggests, the song pairs are also written from opposite perspectives, the result being arguably their best work to date." - Mike Davies, FATEA

"Thanks for sending Peter Gallway’s "Big Mercy." It is, indeed a big mercy. So well crafted and realized. A number of wonderful parts. One is, of course,

"One day there will be only the quiet.
It will stretch forever . . . "

Within a plethora of absolute noise (in its many manifestations) this is such a stunning and simple truth. It is a coda of survival. I find it resonating in my own life."

- Malcolm Boyd (in a letter to Kristi Wallace)
