Reviews

“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

“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

“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.”
