What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
Music Nerd
About Me:
My name is Rowan Galagher. I'm a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. People have said I write medieval psychedelic showtunes. My music is most commonly compared to Radiohead, Syd Barrett, David Bowie and Grizzly Bear. Other comparisons have been made to Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, Ulver, Nick Drake, Danny Elfman, David Sylvian and Midlake.

'The Mad Pride' is a reference to the mass movement known as 'Mad Pride'. "Mad Pride activists seek to re-educate the general public on such subjects as the causes of mental disorders, the experiences of those using the mental health system, and the global suicide pandemic."

30 of my songs are free to download from facebook or reverbnation.

"Nightmare soundtrack music that owes a little to pre-T Rex Marc Bolan folk psyche & a lot to Tim Burton soundtracks."

Hi, thanks for friending me! I'm interested to hear about the Mad Pride movement. Have you ever read Agnes's Jacket? It's a similar subject, I think you would find it interesting.
