Called “a master of free verse” in the Boston Globe and “a star in the making” in the New York Post. PETER GALLWAY is a producer, songwriter, guitarist and singer who communicates humanity and passion through his rich, artful approach to making music.

"There's a weariness in Peter Gallway's vocal delivery, which underpinned by some expressive jazz-influenced instrumental work, is perfectly suited to his vividly evocative homage to his hometown, entitled Manhattan Nocturne. Beautifully understated, it's a personal yet accessible journey."
-- R2 Rock'N'Reel (U.K.)

"These romantic and heartfelt songs together with Peter Gallway’s great voice remind me of Ron Sexsmith and the work of the late Warren Zevon. Let that be a great compliment.".
- - Rootstime, Belgium on Freedom Is

"Gallway wowed the full house with material from his eleven recordings...After two sets of the finest in what can be done with a guitar, a voice, and a heart, the audience was on its feet and didn't want to let him go."
--Trinity Backstage, Santa Barbara

Windstorm here today, the kind of wind where you just put your head down and close your eyes and walk into it, so your song played in my mind and then on the stereo... loving this record and wanted you to know... the songs, the tremolo guitar, Kate's incredibly subtle and beautiful supporting vocals, my friend Louise's wonderful voice, oh my... the whole haunted thing...
Annie Gallup on Rhythm & Blues

"Gallway sees the world through seasoned eyes and delivers a gritty look at American life from unexpected angles. This album has given me hope for singer/songwriters in America. It’s that good."
--Artie Traum on Small Good Thing.

"Gallway’s level of performance is eloquent proof of his many years of hard work and dedication. The combination of his masterful songwriting, vocals and guitar work…puts this recording in rare company."
--Review of A Night In Time, (Northeast Performer)

"The songs are strong [and] Gallway’s production concepts are excellent."
--Review of Yes Yes Yes, (Sing Out Magazine)

"This album is an impressive tour de force which few artists would tackle at all, let alone bring to a successful conclusion."
--Review of Redemption, (Rambles Magazine)

"Gallway demonstrated those rare gifts which so few artists possess in abundance, including an easy, honest, natural rapport with an audience and, most importantly, material that commands complete attention."
--Long Island Live

"Stylistically, it's hard to classify singer/songwriter Peter Gallway; his music veers from sort-of-folk to sort-of-jazz-pop to sort-of-lots-of-other-things, including a blue collar observational lyrical style inspired by Raymond Carver."
--Stereo Review
