“…a soothing piece of melancholia that dwells on mature, rounded themes.” - Clash
“…Jeff Buckley-esque vibrato with sheer youthful exuberance…” - Drowned in Sound
Alt-folk troubadour Gallery 47 - aka Jack Peachey - makes his 2019 debut with the colourfully poignant upcoming album Chaos Ensued, out on 23rd August 2019 via Bad Production Records.
Peachey combines his trademark folk sensibilities with splashes of blues rock, post-punk and classic rock to create something that is undeniably unique. His new found sound is bold, brave and vibrant, whilst still maintaining his signature ability to write wistful tales of melancholy that are highly relatable. Fans of the likes of Bob Dylan, Canned Heat and Easyworld will feel at home here. Talking about the album, Peachey elaborates, “many of the songs on this album are written from a resilient position, openly accepting the prospect of nothing ever quite working out, and of not being capable of being whatever you would need to be in order to succeed in the music industry, despite being tied and bound to it partly through life choices.”
Gallery 47 originally formed ten years ago as a six-piece band in Loughborough. Once the band went their separate ways, Jack decided to continue as a solo artist under the same name, becoming a regular on the live circuit in Nottingham and currently in his new home of South East London. Jack called upon a number of the same musicians who performed on Clean to play on Adversity Breeds, introducing a sense of familiarity to the latter, entwined with layers of texture and emotion throughout. Amongst Jack’s supporters are BBC Radio 2‘s Bob Harris, BBC 6music’s Tom Robinson, The Guardian, Drowned in Sound, Clash and Folk Radio to name a few. Gallery 47 has also supported a number of well established acts like Paul Weller, Alice Phoebe Loe, Ian McCulloch and Andrew Montgomery as well as playing on the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park.
