Biography

Unlike many artists, Anthony Gallucio aka Gallucio didn’t have an epiphany about wanting to perform live. He started with something he loved—playing guitar--and took some sound advice from a trusted source.

“The performing wasn’t a factor; I just loved to play,” Gallucio says, adding, “performing came into play from my father’s advice to find something I love and find a way to make a living doing it.”

His passion for guitar is hard to miss; Gallucio is known as a singer, songwriter and guitar virtuoso. Audiences are left dazzled by his rapid-fire agility and effortless delivery of innovative techniques, and his repertoire includes his originals, spanning many musical genres.

In 2001, Gallucio was honored with the Philadelphia Music Award for “Guitar Player of the Decade”.

He’s known for wearing his heart on his sleeve when he performs, applying a natural flair and style that leaves audiences breathless. His smile and affability draw audiences night after night, and Gallucio says he gives everything he has to his audience, regardless of the size of the venue. “I want people to feel inspired when they leave my show,” he says. “I like to make people happy!”

Gallucio describes his music as being a “tug-of-war” between three of his loves: blues, funk and traditional rock-n-roll. His music is a fusion of old school sound with modern flavors.

Gallucio recently completed his debut album “All for You” produced by Grammy™ nominated engineer/producer David Ivory (Erykah Badu, The Roots, Silvertide, Halestorm, Kindred, Patti LaBelle, Bo Didley) and has recently signed with International Artist Management and Publicity firm ALLURE Media Entertainment Group based in Philadelphia, New York, and Los Angeles. Additionally, Silvertide's guitarist, Nick Perry, superstar Bunny Sigler, and legendary reggae guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith (Bob Marley & The Whalers, Josh Stone) made guest appearances on the new album.

When the hard-working musician allows himself time to imagine his dream gig, he envisions two venues. “The Grand ‘Ol Opry, because only the best of the best get to play there, would be a true honor,” he says, “and the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, because I grew up seeing concerts at the Spectrum and that would like I’d really made it.”

His preferred method to structure music begins with the melody, and the origin of his music is experiential, based both on what he feels inside and what he observes around him.

What sets Gallucio apart from many artists is a realistic view of his position in the music industry and what he has to do to keep playing to larger and larger audiences. Ask him about achieving commercial success and retaining his artistic integrity, and his reply is “I’ll let you know when I get there.”

Perhaps what reveals most about this rising talent is his perspective on the biggest challenge he faces as an indie artist: “Staying true to what I believe without bending to what everyone is telling me to do. I need to keep my music the way I feel it should be without letting it be changed by everyone. I want it to be commercially marketable, but it still needs to be mine.”

Lyrics

Take Me Down

Written By: Lam, Gallucio, Ivory

A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS OR SO THEY SAY
BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN I FEEL LIFE SLIPPIN’ AWAY
SITTING IN A LONELY CORNER OF A SQUARE

SO TAKE ME DOWN, TAKE ME DOWN, TAKE ME DOWN TO ANYWHERE
ANYWHERE BUT HERE

YOU KNOW I LOVE MY JOB
MY GIRL AND ALL MY FRIENDS
BUT WHEN I’M FEELIN’ BAD
SOMETIMES YOU CAN’T PRETEND
SUFFOCATING AND I THINK I NEED SOME AIR

SO TAKE ME DOWN, TAKE ME DOWN, TAKE ME DOWN TO ANYWHERE
ANYWHERE BUT HERE

ANYWHERE FROM HERE – FROM HERE
I JUST CAN’T MAKE IT ALONE – OH NO
FROM HERE – FROM HERE
I JUST CAN’T MAKE IT ALONE

Don't Look Away

Written By: Currier, Gallucio

ONCE I COULDN’T FIND MY WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG
TOOK AWHILE TO FIND MYSELF THAT’S A FACT
I THOUGHT THE MORE I’D RUN THE LESS THAT I’D BE LOOKING BACK
SHE MADE MY HEART SAY DON’T LOOK AWAY, DON’T LOOK AWAY

SHE CAME AND PICKED ME UP LIKE NO ONE’S EVER PICKED ME UP
I JUST WANT TO TELL HER THANK YOU GIRL
SHE SHINED A LIGHT ON ME WHEN I COULDN’T SEE
AND I’LL NEVER, NO NO NEVER LOOK AWAY, LOOK AWAY

BABY, DON’T LOOK AWAY
BABY, DON’T LOOK AWAY
I THOUGHT I HEARD MY HEART SAY THAT FROM NOW ON
GONNA TAKE THE TIME IT TAKES TO MAKE HER MINE
AND I’LL NEVER, NO NO NEVER LOOK AWAY, LOOK AWAY

All For You

Written By: Ivory, Lam, Gallucio

TALK ABOUT HOPE AND NEVER LOSING FAITH
TALK ABOUT LIFE AND EVERY STEP WE TAKE
I NEED YOU HERE WITH ME
NOT A MILLION MILES AWAY – AGAIN – AND THEN

TALK ABOUT THE REASON WHY WE’RE HERE
I TURN TO YOU AND ALL I SEE IS CLEAR
NEVER HESITATE – I COULD NEVER MAKE YOU CRY
DON’T ASK ME WHY

MY HANDS ARE SHAKING – MY WORLD IS BREAKING
MY LOVE IS WAITING ON YOU
THE TEARS ARE SCATTERED – NOTHING MATTERS
EVERYTHING’S TURNIN’ BLUE – ALL FOR YOU – ALL FOR YOU

IN TOO DEEP BUT NEVER ’TIL TODAY
TOO MUCH TIME BUT NOT ENOUGH TIME TO PRAY
IN A WORLD THAT’S ALWAYS SAD
IT’S NEVER GOOD OR BAD
IT MAKES ME WANNA REACH OUT FOR A SECOND CHANCE

MY HANDS ARE SHAKING – MY WORLD IS BREAKING
MY LOVE IS WAITING ON YOU
THE TEARS ARE SCATTERED – NOTHING MATTERS
EVERYTHING’S TURNIN’ BLUE – ALL FOR YOU – ALL FOR YOU
I KNOW THAT ALL THE BAD TIMES LEFT YOU TANGLED UP INSIDE
MAYBE YEARS FROM NOW WE'LL LEARN TO RECONCILE
ALL THE THINGS THAT CAME BETWEEN US
IF I ONLY KNEW WHY

MY HANDS ARE SHAKING – MY WORLD IS BREAKING
MY LOVE IS WAITING ON YOU
THE TEARS ARE SCATTERED – NOTHING MATTERS
EVERYTHING’S TURNIN’ BLUE – ALL FOR YOU – ALL FOR YOU

Crawlin' Back To You

Written By: Carolan, Gallucio, Ivory, Lam

IT’S A EVIL GAME YOU’RE PLAYIN’
THE WAY YOU CUT ME DOWN TO SIZE
YOU’RE SO CRUEL, SO CRUEL, SO CRUEL

REALLY MADE A MESS OF ME
YOU FINALLY GOT THE BEST OF ME
SO TRUE, SO TRUE, SO TRUE

TIME AFTER TIME YOU’RE MY FAVORITE SIN
SO HERE I AM BACK ON MY KNEES AGAIN

I’M CRAWLIN BACK TO YOU BECAUSE I LOVE IT
WHEN YOU BREAK MY HEART
I’M CRAWLIN BACK TO YOU BECAUSE I LOVE IT
WHEN YOU BREAK MY HEART

YOU SAY ONE THING AND DO ANOTHER
WHY CAN’T I SAY GOODBYE
I’M IN A DAZE IT’S LIKE A CAGE
NO MORE TEARS TO CRY

YOU KNOW BABY
YOU’RE MY FAVORITE THING TO DO
MAYBE I’M ADDICTED TO PAIN
BUT THAT’S ALL THAT I EVER KNEW

I’M CRAWLIN BACK TO YOU BECAUSE I LOVE IT
WHEN YOU BREAK MY HEART
I’M CRAWLIN BACK TO YOU BECAUSE I LOVE IT
WHEN YOU BREAK MY HEART

Something To Believe In

Written By: Lam, Gallucio, Ivory

WALKIN’ THROUGH THE CITY AND I DON’T KNOW WHY
I END UP IN THESE PLACES SEARCHIN’ FOR PEACE OF MIND
OF THE HURTIN’ KIND
’CAUSE WHEN MY FAITH IS LOST, IT’S AT SUCH A COST TO FIND IT
I GOTTA HOLD ON

GIMME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
SOMETHING I CAN DEPEND ON
WHEN MY NIGHTS ARE COLD
GIVIN’ ME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
EVERYBODY HAS ONE, SOMEONE THEY CAN DEPEND ON
WHEN I’M ALL ALONE, GIVIN’ ME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN

I DON’T WANNA BE SOMEONE YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
NOW I HAD GOOD INTENTIONS BUT LIFE MADE OTHER PLANS, YES IT DID
RIGHT ON DOWN THE LINE I’VE WASTED SO MUCH TIME
BUT WHEN MY FAITH IS LOST, IT’S AT SUCH A COST

GIMME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
SOMETHING I CAN DEPEND ON
WHEN MY NIGHTS ARE COLD
GIVIN’ ME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
EVERYBODY HAS ONE, SOMEONE THEY CAN DEPEND ON
WHEN I’M ALL ALONE, GIVIN’ ME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN

GIMME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
SOMETHING I CAN SINK MY TEETH IN
WHEN I’M ALL ALONE
SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
EVERYBODY HAS ONE, SOMEONE THEY CAN DEPEND ON
WHEN I’M ALL ALONE, GIVIN’ ME SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN

Everything Changes

Written By: Gallucio, Ivory, Lam

A THOUSAND TIMES I’VE TOSSED AND TURNED
I’M AT THE POINT OF NO RETURN
IT TAKES MY HEART IT TAKES MY LIFE
TO GIVE IT ALL AWAY

THE SUN STILL SHINES IN THE BIG BLUE SKIES
BUT THERE’S RAIN IN YOU’RE EYES
I WISH NOTHING BUT THE BEST FOR YOU
AS LONG AS I SAY GOODBYE

HEY DON’T WEIGH ME DOWN
DON’T WANNA TOUCH THE GROUND
HEY DON’T WEIGH ME DOWN

ALL THAT YOU WANTED
ALL THAT YOU NEED
I CAN’T FIX IT I GUESS IT WASN’T TO BE
EVERYTHING CHANGES
NOTHING’S STAYS THE SAME
AND IN THE END I’M THE ONE THAT YOU BLAME
FOR ALL YOUR TROUBLES

I GOT IT – IT TOOK SO LONG TO KNOW
I GOT IT – I WAS TOO SLOW TO LEARN
THAT YOU AND ME COULD NEVER BE
ISN’T IT A SHAME

HEY DON’T WEIGH ME DOWN
DON’T WANNA TOUCH THE GROUND
HEY DON’T WEIGH ME DOWN

ALL THAT YOU WANTED
ALL THAT YOU NEED
I CAN’T FIX IT I GUESS IT WASN’T TO BE
EVERYTHING CHANGES
NOTHING’S STAYS THE SAME
AND IN THE END I’M THE ONE THAT YOU BLAME
