Joe Gallant w/special guest Jay Biddy of This Way
The 25 year old singer/guitarist has been described as "smooth" and an "earnest songwriter" by Dispatch Magazine and been compared to the likes of John Mayer, Dave Matthews and Jason Mraz.
Gallant has shared stages with acclaimed acts including the The Mallett Brothers Band, Zach Jones, Marion Grace, Eric Bettencourt and Amanda Gervasi.
Drawing influence from a variance in artists from Eric Clapton, to Robert Cray, to Jack White, to D'Angelo, Gallant delivers a "full-bodied whisper of a voice" (Sam Pfeifle, Portland Phoenix) paired with a strikingly hopeful tone to his guitars.
Gallant's debut EP, "My Own Divide", released on October 28, 2011 and is now available at Bull Moose locations.
Jay Biddy was raised on a tradition of singing timeless American folk songs. His grandfather was a conductor on the railroad and he would pass away the countless hours spent in a blistering train engine by singing songs that made sense to his life country and western songs, work songs, traveling songs, gospel songs, love songs, hobo songs, train songs and of course, the blues. True soul music.
Likewise, his grandfather's time at home was equally filled with music, teaching his children the songs that kept his spirits high on the endless days and nights on the railroad. Family gatherings would assuredly turn into sing-a-longs after dinner, with the guitars breaking out and voices singing loud.
It is no surprise that music became so vital to Biddy's life. When he decided to form a career in music, his purpose was to write and sing songs that drew upon some of the themes contained in those countless nights sharing songs passed down the family tree--songs that would teach himself something about his history. Songs about friendship, country, liberation and letting the good times roll. Songs that feel like life itself.
There's a song in every minute worth living.
