Mr Atavist featured my song Malice in his Sunrise Ocean Bender radio show. Luckily he records his shows and posts them online as podcasts too. That particular episode is called “They’ll soon forget the field in which you lie”. You can find it at:

I went over to his wordpress blog and subsequently stumbled onto a review he wrote of my album ‘Scary Poppins’. Here’s a couple of highlights:

“Touches of the fragile detachment of Radiohead and a spectrum of dramatic emotion all take up residence under an ominous sky.”

“Galagher drives the narrative with a deep fret in his voice that has quiver and allure that reminds me of Chris Connelly, working his own ruminations on outings like Largo or under the guise of The Bells. Of course that leads right to Bowie, who also comes to mind from the vocals to some of the dramatic flare.”

Tim from the Indie Bands Blog wrote a review of my music recently. Here are a couple of highlights:

“A vocal which in some ways reminds me of David Bowie adds a lustre to the brooding presence that emanates from the speakers. There is no hurry here, this is music to spend some thoughtful moments with, when life seems a little messy. The pathos superbly combines the bathos of mental disturbance.”

“Whilst Rowan seeks to encapsulate and create an aural exposition of complex emotional strains and as such plays around with classical composition structures, he doesn’t make this inaccessible and that isn’t very easy to achieve.”
