The Gallery's hook-laden rock songs combine a mix of mainstream appeal and professionalism with indie cred and likeability. Their brand of guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock blurs the lines between authenticity and commerciality, producing songs that are refined and disarmingly catchy. A subtly biting guitar sound, simple, road-worn lyricism and consistently sharp musicianship transform their tracks into instantly memorable pop gems you don't want out of your head.

The foursome, Brendan Cooney (lead vocals/guitar), Ryan Cooney (drums), Dave Mozdzanowski (bass/bg vocals) and Shea Brennan (lead guitar) have maintained their hometown fan base in New England, while building a similar following in Southern Florida, where they resided for three years. In 2009, the band set out on the road for their first national tour - a full 50 dates across 25 different states. Since then, they've expanded their fan base across the country, playing shows from Florida to Washington and California to Massachusetts. In the past six months alone, the band has performed with such well-known acts as Rooney, The Maine and We the Kings. The Gallery takes pride in sharing their music and passion with fans at live shows. It's not hard to see or hear why.

Beneath The Gallery's mainstream veneer is an unexpected lyrical maturity that transcends the group's young age. They explore the spaces between growing up and following dreams, and between falling in and out of love, writing songs that are both meaningful and instantly relatable. This fall, the band recorded five new songs with producer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, Augustana) at Swing House Studios in Hollywood. From the catchy hooks of "Catalyst" to the thought-provoking lyrics of "Who's in the Right" and the haunting melodies of "Ballroom of Broken Hearts," the new tracks reveal a band expanding and sharpening its sound. Keep an eye out for tour dates and an exciting year in 2011.

PRESS:

"Sound: Big, shout-along choruses and bluesy guitar breakdowns. Singer Brendan Cooney grew up on nineties rock, but gravitated toward legends like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan." - Rolling Stone

"These Western Massachusetts natives take honest, straight-ahead rock'n'roll back to its jangling roots. Miss the days when Tom Petty ruled the chart? So do these guys, but they're giving some pretty good hope of reviving the Great American Rock Band." - AOL Spinner

"Muscular guitars with a heartland edge, combined with overflowing hooks and harmonies, make The Gallery's five-song EP a gut-kicking trip of sheer rockin' splendor." - The Springfield Republican

"Straight ahead American rock'n'roll that fans of Tom Petty will adore." - New Times Broward Palm Beach

"Come Alive is a stripped down rock anthem with a folkinsh twist... The songs themselves are a breath of resh air, infused with a nostalgic sense of raw emotion." - Stereo Subversion

"Come Alive is a near flawless showcase of pop rock with an americana twist." - The Album Project

"They simply write great pop songs with an indie college flair." - Kings of A&R
