Tom Galloway Releases Sophomore Album 'Rearview' October 20, 2020 14:17
Nashville, TN (October 16th, 2020) - Americana rocker and singer/songwriter, Tom Galloway, just released his second solo effort entitled, “Rearview.” The 6 song EP features previously released singles from this year as well as brand new songs “Let it Play,” “Rearview,” & “Lazy Days.” The album flows intentionally well from start to finish and shows strong diversity of his songwriting, both in lyrics and composition. With a powerful band, empathetic lyrics, and unique vocals and harmonies, this record maintains both a refreshing yet timeless vibe. Recorded at Southern Ground Studios in Nashville, the record also includes special guests from Moon Taxi, LadyCouch, CBDB, & Sicard Hollow.
“This album was such a pleasure to create. In retrospect, I believe the overall theme of this record deals with the destructive and redemptive aspects of love, both gained and lost, as well as the importance of self-worth and forward positive motion. It’s tempting to look back in the rearview at memories and illusions of the past, but focusing on the present and the road ahead is the answer.”
