Bronagh Gallagher & Band

“Bronagh’s natural ability to really sing soul music is refreshing amongst a sea of ‘pop’ voices. Her phrasing reminds me of some of the greats and that era when it was all about the singer and the band/orchestra’s job was to create a wonderful and musical storyboard for that singer to deliver his or her message (Bronagh’s band also does this with ease). Her songwriting capabilities are as fine tuned as her singing voice, in other words ‘she’s a gem’”
