Quartz Hill Records recording act and official Elixir Strings artist Ben Gallaher will hang with fans and perform songs from his soon-to-be-released EP during an upcoming livestream via American Songwriter’s Instagram page ( @AmericanSongwriter ). The livestream event, presented by Elixir Strings, takes place this Wednesday (5/12) at NOON Central.
A triple threat singer, songwriter and guitarist, Gallaher is a young star on the rise, having already earned more than ONE MILLION YouTube streams of his debut Quartz Hill single “Every Small Town,” ahead of the song’s Summer 2021 impact date at country radio. The single is also the title track of Gallaher’s debut Quartz Hill EP which will be released June 25.
Every Small Town (the EP) is now available for pre-add/ pre-save across digital platforms HERE.
Partnering with American Songwriter and Elixir Strings on Wednesday’s livestream event is a natural fit for Gallaher, who has enjoyed a longstanding relationship as an official Elixir Strings artist AND who has been previously lauded by American Songwriter as an artist possessing “an authenticity that shines through.”
“I’ve been a fan of American Songwriter for years and I’ve been playing Elixir Strings for over ten years, so partnering with both of them on this livestream for fans means a lot to me. I can’t wait to hang with everyone, talk about songwriting, guitar playing and also play a couple of songs!” said Gallaher.
“Being able to highlight rising artists and songwriters has been at the core of American Songwriter since day one. When Elixir Strings presented us with the opportunity to partner with Ben Gallaher we could not have been more excited. We are looking forward to watching Ben perform songs off his upcoming EP and hope all can tune in on Instagram,” said Colin Montemarano, American Songwriter’s Director of Brand Partnerships.
About Ben Gallaher: A self-taught musician with a strong reverence for guitar masters, Gallaher’s songs are autobiographical anthems of growing up in the small town of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania that radiate a passion for the lyric-driven country music that influenced him. The burgeoning star’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. The Quartz Hill Records artist 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 worked with acclaimed music producers Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and Derek George (Randy Houser, Joe Nichols) on his debut Quartz Hill Records EP, Every Small Town. The EP will be released on June 25 and is available for pre-save / pre-add now. For the latest news on Ben Gallaher follow him on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
