Music Video Premiere: Gallery 47 - Cold Fire

2 June 17 video: Gallery 47

The first track to be taken from his forthcoming new album, Adversity Breeds...

Since the release of his critically acclaimed album Clean, alt-folk songwriter Gallery 47 aka Jack Peachey has been preparing to share his colourfully political follow up album, Adversity Breeds. This second album, as part of a trilogy, will be out on 22nd September 2017 via AWAL / Bad Production Records.

Jack explains, “if Clean was the romantic album, Adversity Breeds is the divorce”. Influenced by a holiday row between Peachey and some family members who commented negatively on today’s youth, Jack combines real life events and fiction to create a captivating blend of upbeat, sentimental and bittersweet tracks. Each track on the album offers something poignant and different. Whether its the lighthearted nature of Analytical & Open or the dark, brooding songwriting of In Odessa, Peachey continues to create soft, wistful tales of melancholy that are highly relatable. Jack maintains his signature soft, vibrato throughout whilst effortlessly blending his intricate guitar plucking and storytelling charm echoing Bob Dylan’s raw, colloquial writing style.

Gallery 47 originally formed ten years ago as a six-piece band in Loughborough. Once the band went their separate ways, Jack decided to continue as a solo artist under the same name, becoming a regular on the live circuit in Nottingham and currently in his new home of South East London. Jack called upon a number of the same musicians who performed on Clean to play on Adversity Breeds, introducing a sense of familiarity to the latter, entwined with layers of texture and emotion throughout.

With Adversity Breeds, Jack tackles the subject of standing up for a good cause whilst being rejected by those closest to you. A subject that is possibly at its most relatable now more than ever.

Adversity Breeds is due for release on 22 September 2017 via Bad Production Records.
