"Brave Young Soul"

On their new single “Brave Young Soul”, The Green Gallows power through folk, country, and blues to shape a sound that’s all their own. “Brave Young Soul” rests on foot-stomping acoustic guitar and a devilish harmonica that adds an airy quality to the track. It’s an aggressive song that grips its listener from start to finish. And the song’s not meant to be taken lightly: it’s unshakeable in its resolve and execution.

Unsurprisingly, the Astoria, Queens-based band gives its audience an adventure that’s meant to both entertain and educate an audience. The Green Gallows will share the stage with Goddamn Gallows on July 19 at the Knitting Factory. - Pam Segura

"Pancakes & Whiskey"

There’s not a much better way to warm the body and soul during this intense winter, than to catch a Green Gallows gig.

The Astoria band blazed through a 2 hour set at Sweet Afton while warming up for their tour which starts on 2/12 in Export, PA.

The band consists of transplants from around the country including Texas, Washington, Indiana and Michigan who are now Astoria natives. I asked the band how they would describe their style and if pressed would be labeled as Gypsy/Folk/Americana . If you were to ask me, it’s just good music that makes you want to dance and cause a ruckus!!

This is a talented group who often switch instruments during the set which makes for and exciting night wondering who’s going to play the mandolin or guitar next. I was impressed most by the wonderful harmonies when the whole band would sing together while all stomping their feet to provide a cool and simple back beat, with beats like that who needs a drummer?

As a concert photographer I see a lot of local bands who are just starting out, but it’s not often I find myself dancing around while trying to take shots, which says a bunch. - Shayne Hanley
