Based in San Francisco but comprised of Midwestern and Southern transplants with a devotion to honest roots based American music, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah weave a sonic tapestry framed by wailing guitars, churning organ, and more than a slight nod to the southern gospel music of their past.
The band has garnered buzz for their live shows which transform traditional music venues into sweaty, hip-shaking, psychedelic tent revivals.. And, for the new kids on the block, the band has had the incredible good fortune of sharing the stage with such acts as, Heartless Bastards, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas, and even The Doobie Brothers, Boston, and Living Colour.
The early reviews of their debut record have ticked off comparisons to many legendary artists such as Humble Pie, The Band, the Grateful Dead, the Faces, and the Black Crowes. Gallagher’s dynamic vocal range has brought repeated comparisons to both Neil Young and Robert Plant.

Joe Bourdet and Band is a versitile country-esque rock combo that can range in style from gently loping acoustic ballads with delicate harmony vocals to intertwining slide guitar leads and tastefully vintaged-out rock sounds. The themes can involve pastoral imagery, sometimes betraying a love for the Sierra Nevadas
