The Gallery’s hook-laden rock songs combine a mix of mainstream appeal and professionalism with indie cred and likeability. Their brand of guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock blurs the lines between authenticity and commerciality, producing songs that are refined and disarmingly catchy. A subtly biting guitar sound, simple, road-worn lyricism and consistently sharp musicianship transform their tracks into instantly memorable pop gems you don’t want out of your head.
The Gallery features Brendan Cooney (lead vocals/guitar), Ryan Cooney (drums), Dave Mozdzanowski (bass/bg vocals), and Ben Lozano (lead guitar). The band has maintained their hometown fan base in New England, while building a similar following in Southern Florida, where they resided for three years. In 2009, the group set out on the road for their first national tour – a full 50 dates across 25 different states. Since then, they’ve expanded their fan base across the country, playing over shows from Florida to Washington and California to Massachusetts. The band has played with such well known artists as Minus the Bear, Rooney, The Maine, and Sam Roberts. The Gallery takes pride in sharing their music and passion with fans at live shows. It’s not hard to see or hear why.
Beneath The Gallery’s mainstream veneer is an unexpected lyrical maturity that transcends the group’s young age. They explore the spaces between growing up and following dreams, and between falling in and out of love, writing songs that are both meaningful and instantly relatable. In the fall of 2010, the band recorded five new songs with producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Augustana, Aerosmith). The tracks were released on the “Come Alive” EP in February 2011, earning the band attention from such nationally recognized publications as Rolling Stone, Alternative Press and AOL Spinner, and nation-wide college radio airplay landing the band on the CMJ charts. The strength of the new songs was recognized by the International Songwriting Competition, which selected the band as finalists in their rock division, and also the Recording Academy, who asked the band to participate in the 2011 Florida GRAMMY Showcase. From the catchy hooks of “Catalyst” to the thought-provoking lyrics of “Who’s in the Right” and the haunting melodies of “Ballroom of Broken Hearts,” the new tracks reveal a band expanding and sharpening its sound.
Now in 2012, the band returns to Southern California, but this time on a more permanent basis. The Gallery will be residing in the Los Angeles area, while playing shows throughout the Southwest and writing and recording new material. Keep an eye out for new songs, tour dates, and an exciting year in 2012.
