Top 5 best up-and-coming Bay Area bands of 2014. --CBS San Francisco

"There’s no arguing with the talent and skill on display on San Franciscan blues belter Lee Gallagher’s debut. With their mix of psychedelic organ, earthy blues rock and huge gospel flourishes, his band have clearly been striving for perfection, and this album suggests they want to be taken very seriously indeed."--Classic Rock Magazine

"Lee Gallagher, who wrote all of the material, is an intense and arresting vocalist, and his band is top-notch." --Jeff Burger, No Depression/The Morton Report

“A heady mix of retro tube-amp fuzz, heartland tales and instrumentation, and modern alt grit, this is one of the more ear-opening acts to come from Frisco…and for that matter the West Coast… in a long time. “– MW, Music Morsels

"a cosmic adrenaline rush reminiscent of Springsteen and The Band at their most vivacious….nowhere else can one hear the synthesis of gospel, psychedelia, roots, Americana, folk, and rock in a crossroads that brings them all together so perfectly" --Turnstyled Junkpiled

“When music fans think of great singer-songwriters, they might think of Neil Young and when they think of powerful voices they might think of Robert Plant. Perhaps the generation of today and tomorrow, they might think of Lee Gallagher as both.” --Bay Area Examiner

It’s a piece of cake to trace the influences, the winds blowing through the sails of Lee Gallagher and The Hallelujah’s “Gloryland.” Simply list the best Rock-N-Roll groups of the last 50 years, throw in a few Country music bands, some Indies and Laurel Canyon Folk harmonies and there you have it. If the song were a haunted house, Neil Young would lead the apparitions’ festivities. Gallagher’s voice can’t help but make us recall a youthful Neil’s ghostly, tremulous, high-pitched singing.”—Song Mango

“Hazy folk rock-Americana that gives a serious nod to the musical aesthetics of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, but Gallagher’s voice upholds a particularly recognizable nod to Neil Young.” --The Deli

"Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah’s self titled album not only has charisma, but like Steve Marriott’s time with both Humble Pie and The Small Faces, the sexual lyrical allure and driving passion of Bon Scott and Jim Morrison and the intrigue and real human life stories that binds together John Dexter Jones work are mixed with fruitful conviction throughout the 11 songs on offer"--Liverpool Sound and Vision

"Lee Gallagher and his band, The Hallelujah provide a 'teaser' on their website for their debut album.  It is one minute and 30 seconds long and it is aggravating as hell.  It is way too short, incredibly enticing, igniting a hunger that dwells in many of us; that longing for something real, fresh and exciting,  like music used to be."  --Coachella Valley Weekly

"Critics are raving about Lee Gallagher & The Hallelujah, particularly Gallagher’s Neil Young and Robert Plant-esque vocal intonations, framed by the band’s “hazy, folk-rock, Americana style.” --Red Dirt Reporter, OK
