The Occoquan River

“One of the outstanding releases this year….The Occoquan River is brilliant.” ….Paul Gough, The Inside Sleeve, ABC Radio National.

"The Occoquan River is one of the best songs of the year-Australian or International"….Brian Wise Off The Record, Triple R FM

"Every track on The Occoquan River is carefully yet simply crafted, as if each has come to him effortlessly, organically and fully formed. The crown jewel of the album is the title track: a truly haunting, mournful piece."….Lukas Murphy, theMusic    ★★★★☆

Surfcoast artist Gallie has delivered a brilliant release in The Occoquan River. At first, it sounds like easy to hear folk music but combine this with a killer story and you have the masterful art of Gallie and the Occoquan River….Tex Miller, Forte Magazine

"this is the kind of music adored by Americana music fans"….JEFF GLORFELD, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald
Tom Waits once said “The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is destroying the quality of our suffering;” the very same Tom Waits which then went on to vote Gallie as a finalists of the International Songwriting Contest. In the short time Gallie has called Australia his home, he has crashed into the gate of the Australian music industries consciousness, with approaches from Renee Geyer to cover his own song “Anybody Seen My Baby,” and lighting the switch board of ABC Radio 774 with his remarkable live performance of his song “The Occuquan River,”on The Richard Stubbs show. Not withstanding Gallie’s closing performances of the recent Bob Dylan tribute evenings with Tex Perkins for which he received standing ovations, on consecutive nights before full houses. 

 GALLIE is an exceptional Irish singer/ songwriter who will be touring throughout Australia in the next few months. CHECK OUT the clip below - HE'S THE REAL DEAL!!!

Upcoming Gigs

Previous events

The Very Round Robin-Gallie, Roesy & Rebecca Bernard

The Flying Saucer Club, Georges st, Elsternwick, Melbourne

I first met Roesy in St Kilda doing a gig in Pure Pop Records. I was blown away by his musicianship and songwriting. I first heard Rebecca Barnard at the Caravan club in Oakleigh. She came on after me and played Bob Dylans 'Spanish Boots'. I couldn't get over how good it was. Now I get to play with these two incredible talents as part of a great evening called 'The Very Round Robin'. Three songwriters on stage at the same time, taking turns to sing our songs and tell some stories. We last did this show at the Caravan Club in Oakleigh. We had Aine Tyrrell with us then and I have to say it was one of my favourite gigs that I have ever done. I cannot wait to for this one at The Flying Saucer , tickets are going out the door so get in asap.…/round-robin-ft-gallie…/

Gallie East Coast Tour

Gallie first played this room launching his album The Occoquan River in oct 2015. Returning in August to this amazing venue with an eight piece band, playing songs from The Occoquan River plus new songs from his soon to released new album.

The Very Round Robin-Gallie, Roesy & Aine Tyrrell

The Caravan Music Club, Oakleigh RSL, 95-97 Drummond Street, , Oakleigh Victoria 3166

The concept is 3 Irish singer-songwriters in the round on stage as simple as it is endearing. An ‘in the round’ style like an old style music show sharing music and stories, harmonies and talents, each artist playing their own songs and each others and giving the audience the unique opportunity to see an intimate display of talents and experiences between musical peers on stage.
