Biography

Hat Check Girl, the new collaboration between veteran songwriters Annie Gallup and Peter Gallway, is pleased to announce their debut recording, Tenderness. The album’s 13 new songs, mostly Gallup/Gallway cowrites, showcase the band’s literate songwriting, spooky ambiance, and hypnotic delivery. Annie sings and plays electric guitar and lap steel. Peter is featured on vocals, electric guitars, baritone guitar, bass, keyboards, drum programming and percussion. The songs evoke an urban landscape, longing, connection, restlessness and resolution, set against a sonic backdrop of looping beats and gorgeous guitars. The effect has been

described as an intelligent, evocative and sensual slow motion dance record.

A lifetime’s dedication to her art has made Annie Gallup an icon among people who take songwriting seriously. She has performed throughout North America since 1994, including appearances at Winnipeg, Ottawa, Summerfolk and Stan Rogers Folk Festivals and Vancouver Island Music Fest in Canada, as well as concert venues coast to coast, including New York’s fabled Bottom Line. Annie has led songwriting workshops from Whitehorse in the Yukon to the Swannanoa Gathering in Asheville, North Carolina. She was heard on NPR’s All Things Considered in an interview with Noah Adams. Her eighth album, Weather (2010) is a collection of songs arranged for voice and string quartet.

Peter Gallway emerged from the Greenwich Village scene of the 60’s and had released three albums on Warner/Reprise by the time he was twenty-five. He subsequently put out a dozen more recordings on various independent labels.
