There are too many!
But I have to say when we first started to make songs and got noticed by big names and was asked to remix their songs! This was a great feeling, and seeing plugs in charts, hearing our songs in the big rooms, I saw many records in record stores in Toronto, Paris, and watching a promo music video for Gunze/ BodyWild with my track!
i dont have any for now,but someday i'll get that all
OTHERNESS were born very far from where the musiz biz "happens", but we had the chance to play 23 gigs in London, be chosen by John Robb as New Band of the Day (UK Independent Music) and locally, we played a mainstream tv show in Argentina (the host Roberto Pettinato was the sax player to one of our fave bands from our country, called SUMO) and we have a cool video on La Patagonia Cinemas, about "Positive Thinking: Agitation". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMoZqNjUF2w
I won poet of the year 2004 from Poetry.com
For a project I did with Walter Orange, lead singer and drummer for The Commodores, which went to the Grammy Nomination board 8 times. That was very exciting for me to say the least.
The song It's time for you got recomended on a norwegian music page.
i tried for wisconsins idol contest, nashville star twice, americas got talent, marshfield's got talent a local contest, i am a published poet and a photographer,but music is my great passion and love
I can say you i won a lot of awards but there is no relation with music. Okay maybe one of them was Nokia Karaoke '07 at Turkey. I won this competition. And another one was Mentos Madness Video Competition. I was third at there. I hope that examples from known brands.
|Press reviews of Naxos CD "Jack Gallagher: Orchestral Music," recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by JoAnn Falletta:
“Fresh and exuberant. The LSO couldn’t sound finer; it’s as if the music had been specifically written to showcase their approach to making sound.”
— Lawrence Vittes, Gramophone
“JACK GALLAGHER composes with assurance for orchestra. Strongly conceived.” (Five stars)
— Anthony Burton, BBC Music Magazine
“Jack Gallagher is a name to remember, and this disc is definitely one to own. (The Symphony) is truly a work of genius. If you buy only one disc of new music this year, I would certainly suggest this as the place to begin.” (Five stars)
– Steven Ritter, Audiophile Audition
“Challenging stuff, and very impressive indeed. The ending is a riot of colour and energy. Powerful, well written music. A real find!”
—Bob Briggs, Music Web International, U.K.
“A composer of diverse coloristic gifts. Inhabits sound world(s) of . . . vivacity and lyricism . . . poignancy . . . and dark, swirling drama. The London Symphony Orchestra and conductor JoAnn Falletta are first-rate champions of Gallagher's creations. Grade: A."
— Donald Rosenberg, Cleveland Plain Dealer
“The sheer variety of orchestral textures . . . is nothing short of amazing. Gallagher's Sinfonietta for strings is a marvel of a work. It is hoped that we can hear more from this composer.”
— Chris Hathaway, KUHF, Houston Public Radio
“Fresh, imaginative, colorful and deftly orchestrated. Exudes engaging lyricism and exciting rhythmic patterns. Unreservedly recommended.”
— Herman Trotter, Buffalo News
“Poignancy, explosive energy, good-natured humor . . . and a warm-hearted directness that is tremendously engaging. Urgently recommended.”
— Ronald E. Grames, Fanfare
“One is entranced by the atmospheric ambiance. Gallagher writes beautiful music and he is very, very good at it. I was thoroughly captivated. My very strongest recommendation.”
— Jerry Dubins, Fanfare
“Exciting orchestral music. You'll be grateful for the on-going mission of conductor JoAnn Falletta. . . to spotlight well-deserving composers and their music.”
— Julie Amacher, Minnesota Public Radio, "New Classical Tracks"
“Very cogently structured in one movement, part of a long and distinguished lineage stretching back through Samuel Barber and Roy Harris to the Seventh Symphony of Sibelius. Gallagher is definitely worth getting to know.”
— David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com
"Do you want optimistic exuberance? Go to the Diversions Overture. Poignancy? The liltingly lovely Berceuse. Music does not get much lovelier than this. Vivacity? The Sinfonietta for strings. The Symphony in One Movement: Threnody pretty much has it all. I highly recommend this CD. You will think you have been cheated that you have not heard it before."
— Robert R. Reilly, Crisis Magazine
“Brilliantly orchestrated and impeccably constructed. Not only intellectually stimulating but immediately appealing.”
— Bob McQuiston, National Public Radio, "Deceptive Cadence."
“Music that is warm, inventive, melodic and carefully structured. (Exhibits) multi-instrumental virtuosity, featuring a number of very well-conceived scoring touches.” (Four plusses)
— Mark J. Estren, Infodad.com
"All is brilliantly orchestrated and performed here. Exciting work deserving a place on concert programs." (Recording: ****/****; Performance: ****/****)
— Steven A. Kennedy, Cinemusical
"Jack Gallagher's classical piece "Berceuse" is a work of such staggering beauty that it makes me want to be a better person. I cannot believe I had never heard of this music or this man until last week."
— Philip Plait, "The Bad Astronomer"
"Irresistible rhythmic élan and not a little wit, exhilarating in its effect. Powerful and deeply felt."
– Colin Anderson, The Classical Review
