Music

I've has been playing music for longer than I can remember. Raised in front of the stereo, I first started strumming the guitar when the instrument was larger than myself and have never stopped. Over the years, I've played a variety of other instruments (piano, bass, lap steel, trombone, trumpet, drums) and, in spite of the discouragement of my grade school chorus teacher, I also sing. My specialties are country/folk, hardcore/punk, instrumental, and contemporary classical. If you need music for a video or film project, or a session bassist or guitarist, I'm available for hire. A obsessive vinyl collector and host of the Alcohol and Tears (Mostly) Country Radio Hour, I'm also available as a DJ or music consultant.

Commercial Projects

Personal Projects

  • Cullen Brian Gallagher - Modern country straight from Brooklyn. New album, The Lonely Place of You, now available.

  • Demoted - Brooklyn hardcore. New album, Not Myself Today.

  • Modern Silent Cinema - New album, Ghost (2021). Experimental rock sounds ranging from the quiet to the not-so-quiet.

  • Soundcloud - This is where I post my works-in-progress, demos, ideas, and couch recordings. Lately it's a mish mash of country and instrumental pieces. That might change tomorrow.

  • The Alcohol and Tears (Mostly) Country Radio Show - Hey, Ma! I'm on the air! Choice cuts from my vinyl collection. Lots of obscure country 45s, classic honky tonk songs, and selections from my favorite contemporary singers.

  • Night Squad - My old hardcore band.

  • Dream Box - A shoegaze project with Jake Newcomb of Sea King.
