“Every Small Town,” Available Digitally on Friday, February 5
NASHVILLE, TN (January 11, 2021) – Today Quartz Hill Records, the newly-formed joint partnership with leading global music distribution company The Orchard, announced the signing of Ben Gallaher to its label roster.
A self-taught musician with a strong reverence for guitar masters, Gallaher songs are autobiographical anthems of growing up in Pennsylvania that radiate a passion for the lyric-driven country music that influenced him. Gallaher’s vocals exude a smoky texture reflective of the backwoods bars in which the young artist honed his unbridled stage craft, driving to the Eastern corridor to perform each weekend while pursuing a degree in Entertainment Industry Studies at Nashville’s Belmont University.
Gallaher has earned a fast-growing fanbase due to his commanding guitar prowess and energetic live shows while opening for the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Blake Shelton, 3 Doors Down, Lee Brice, and has toured the Pennsylvania State Prisons for ten years on his annual, headlining “Prison Tour.”
Gallaher was introduced to Quartz Hill Records’ Benny Brown by Brown’s longtime friend Ben Vaughn, President & CEO of Warner/ Chappell Music Nashville and Gallaher’s publisher. After meeting with Brown and Quartz Hill managing partners Paul Brown and Jason Sellers, they knew the label had found its next rising star.
“I was immediately taken with Ben’s ability to sit and perform just a guitar vocal and make it sound huge – like we were in an arena instead of in a conference room. After performing only three songs, I knew Ben was a star. And after spending time with more than 100 songs Ben had written, I knew we needed him in Country music. His songs not only have a good beat but each one has a message that fans can wrap their arms around,” says Benny Brown.
"I'm humbled to work with Benny Brown and the Quartz Hill Records team. Since our first conversation, they have welcomed me as a member of their family," says Gallaher. "Our visions for my brand and future are perfectly aligned and I'm fired up to share the new music we have been working on!"
Fans will get their first taste of new music from Gallaher on Friday, February 5 with the worldwide release of the anthemic “Every Small Town,” co-written by Gallaher, Ash Bowers and Jim Collins.
Gallaher is currently in the studio recording his debut Quartz Hill Records album with acclaimed music producers Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and Derek George (Dustin Lynch, Randy Houser).
Gallaher is signed to Warner/ Chappell Music Nashville and is an ASCAP writer. He is booked by WME and managed by BSB Management.
