Bio

Galleons Lap are an ideal example of the inspired music that Brisbane has been generating in recent years. A four-piece original outfit, Galleons Lap blend innovative songwriting with classic, measured musicianship, and the result is a blend of roots and folk which you are unlikely to forget.

Founded in 2001 by Luke Foran and Adam Campbell, Galleons Lap began as an accoustic-based outlet for their respective stockpiles of original, folkish tunes. They performed as a duo for a year before begging keyboard legend Andy White to spice up the mix with his haunting compositions and unbelievable virtuosity.

Andy joined, and a 3-piece Galleons Lap gigged Brisbane and the North Coast extensively for the next four years, supporting wonderful artists such as Loren, Birtie Blackman, Palladium, Paul Greene, The Boat People, Georgious, the Go Betweens, Emma Deane, Dappled Cities Fly, Asa Broomhall, The Devoted Few, and many more.

With a surplus of original material and a desire to further evolve, Beck Flatt has recently joined the band as drummer for the most current incarnation of Galleons Lap. Her sublime playing ability and musical sense are indeed the final pieces of a puzzle that the band has been slowly piecing together.

2007 finds Galleons Lap with a self-titled EP which beautifully reflects style of the current line-up. The recording depicts a Galleons Lap rooted firmly in the folk past, yet pointing toward the future with absolute conviction. Lovers are urged to check out the newest confessions of these great players.
