“Mixing a laid-back, Jack Johnson vibe with a vocal sound and lyrical approach that recall Paul Simon at his most whimsical, Galison is immediately endearing from the starting notes of relaxed album opener “Risky Business,” and things only get better from there. By the time he’s ambling through the Cajun-inflected “If I Had a Dime,” where he actually gets away with rhyming “impresario” with “star ya know,” you’ve long since given in to his charms.”

““Peyroux is already back, this time teamed up with an extraordinary hyphenate: singer-songwriter-producer-percussionist-harmonica player William Galison, on the multi-shaded Got You On my Mind (Waking Up). OK, so Got You on My Mind was recorded a full year before Love, but still: Peyroux and Galison are a match made in musical heaven, especially when they intertwine voices on the languorously sexy, co-written “Playin’” and a hymnlike “Heaven help Us All”. ”

““To my ear, the most original and individual of the new generation of harmonica players.” ”


“Playing and working with William is always a joy. The notes he finds and the ideas he comes up with are always a delightful surprise. I am lucky to have worked with William Galison and I have much to learn from him.” ”
