'The Mad Pride' is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Rowan Galagher. Having been compared to Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Nick Cave, Radiohead and Leonard Cohen, all attempts to pigeon-hole his music within a genre-based paradigm of stylistic reductionism have failed.

During 2009 and 2010 Rowan released 3 original albums in which he moved seamlessly from avant-garde psych-folk experimentation to neoclassical soundscapes and beyond. His DIY ethic has motivated him to play the majority of the instruments himself and record them alone in his Wollongong based apartment.

With an uncompromising commitment to emotional authenticity and a wider goal of positive social change, Rowan is driven to make honest and progressive music. He is constantly pushing the boundaries of conventional genres and seeks to forge a new platform in the contemporary musical landscape. It would appear that he is succeeding at this as, aside from the aforementioned artists, Rowan's music has also been compared to Jacques Brel, Mr Bungle, Danny Elfman, Jeff Martin, Muse, Grizzly Bear, Midlake and David Sylvian.

'The Mad Pride' is a reference to the mass movement known as 'Mad Pride'. "Mad Pride activists seek to re-educate the general public on such subjects as the causes of mental disorders, the experiences of those using the mental health system, and the global suicide pandemic."

    Really cool sound. You should add your lyrics to the player, sometimes it's a little hard to hear...though that's not a bad. "Out to Sea" is def. my favorite. Mar 05
