"Top 5 best up-and-coming Bay Area bands of 2014." -CBS San Francisco
"Neil Young on steroids"
““...he's an obvious walking, talking lead singer, someone about to grab the nearest mic and wail. And wail he does.” - C.A. MacConnell”
"When music fans think of great singer-songwriters, they might think of Neil Young and when they think of powerful voices they might think of Robert Plant. Perhaps the generation of today and tomorrow, they might think of Lee Gallagher as both."
"Lee Gallagher and his band, The Hallelujah provide a 'teaser' on their website for their debut album. It is one minute and 30 seconds long and it is aggravating as hell. It is way too short, incredibly enticing, igniting a hunger that dwells in many of us; that longing for something real, fresh and exciting, like music used to be."
"Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah’s self titled album not only has charisma, but like Steve Marriott’s time with both Humble Pie and The Small Faces, the sexual lyrical allure and driving passion of Bon Scott and Jim Morrison and the intrigue and real human life stories that binds together John Dexter Jones work are mixed with fruitful conviction throughout the 11 songs on offer"
"This San Francisco-based band’s organ-spiced music is anachronistic in the best way: it incorporates more than a hint of psychedelia and potent lead guitar and recalls the most anthemic tracks of Guns ’n’ Roses; I’m also reminded of more obscure 70s groups like Nektar and Pavlov’s Dog. Lee Gallagher, who wrote all of the material, is an intense and arresting vocalist, and his band is top-notch."
““Hazy folk rock-Americana that gives a serious nod to the musical aesthetics of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, but Gallagher’s voice upholds a particularly recognizable nod to Neil Young.””
