Lance Gallup is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and self-proclaimed "nice guy" who currently calls the Berkshire Hills of upstate New York his home. Steeped in the folk-rock music of the 70's, Lance's music is satisfying mix of rich lyrical imagery and warn organic instrumentation. John Braheny, well-known luminary and author of the music biz bible "The Craft and Business of Songwriting" writes ""Lance, I love this lyric. You have a great gift for metaphor, visual imagery and adventurous wordplay."
Known primarily as a guitarist, Lance has played electric and acoustic 6 and 12 string guitar in multiple bands and ensembles in Berkshire county and in other areas of the US. Lately he's also been incorporating more flavors into his musical stew. A listen to the songs he's penned for his upcoming CD feature piano, organ and bass as well as a cornucopia of sampled and digital sounds, most played and programmed by Lance. In recent performances with music partners Dianne Steele and Robin O'Herin he can also be heard on native american wood flute, ukulele and cuatro - a ten stringed instrument common to the music of Puerto Rico.
Comments from his listeners say it best:
"When you sing, you exude such an atmosphere of tranquility. I've been really strung out the past couple weeks, running on overload. Your music was just I needed to calm my spirit. The peace is still with me.”
“Your words broke my heart. It was like you were here singing, I love recordings like that. You have this really romantic quality to your music add your words and sell my clothes, I'm going to heaven. I just loved, wish I could be more eloquent but that just says it all.”
“Lance, you... this song takes my breath away. What a beautiful song and you play it and sing it just gorgeous!!! Every note and word has such heart. I think it should be in a movie. I love it.”
