Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah

San Francisco based psych-Americana band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah are an organ/guitar driven rock band whose shows transport the audience out of a traditional music venue and into a hazy, hip shaking psychedelic tent revival.

Described as “An obvious walking, talking lead singer” by City Beat Magazine, Gallagher has rapidly risen to the top of San Francisco’s rock scene. Gallagher’s EP, Valley of a Dying Breed features acclaimed singer-songwriter Victoria Williams, a champion of Gallagher’s work and an artist he credits as an influence. On the heels of Valley, Gallagher, along with his band, The Hallelujah are now embarking on tour as they gear up for the release of their first, full-length, self-titled record.

Bonding over a love of Bobby Charles (among many others) The Hallelujah are a group of like-minded musicians comprised of Kirby Hammel on piano/organ, Jacob Landry on lead guitar, KG on bass and Joe Miller on drums. Along with Gallagher the band is a group of people who are constantly playing and evolving together. Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah are punk rock without playing “punk” music. The band effortlessly slides between country/folk, blues and rock and roll culminating in their unique brand of Psychedelic Gospel.
