Artist Bio: Jules Galli
Since arriving in Los Angeles in 2014, 23-year-old French singer and songwriter Jules Galli has already turned heads and arrested hearts. Influenced by such legends as Queen, Michael Jackson and Bob Marley, Jules’ completely unique brand of original pop music blends all the best elements of funk, soul, reggae, and R&B into one utterly memorable package.
Driven by the motto that “life is meant to be lived, be loved, and be free,” the live Jules Galli experience is a riveting, high-energy, larger-than-life stage performance that easily draws sold-out crowds by never losing sight of the fact that the primary purpose of music is to move people and to bring them together. Bringing limitless passion and love to each and every show, which includes opening for Macy Gray on top of the US Bank Tower, winning two TopTune songwriting competitions and playing all of the hottest clubs in Hollywood and the Sunset Strip, Jules Galli is quickly becoming a name to remember. His lead single “Without Your Love” was recently featured in a Hanz De Fuko video starring Marinao de Viao and a full debut album and international support tour are in the works for 2017.
Artist Bio: Tom Crouch
Based out of Los Angeles, California, Tom Crouch is a British multi-faceted musician and songwriter dedicated to creating transcendent art.
‘A Civil War of Head & Heart’ (released independently April 11th 2016) is Crouch’s highly anticipated debut release, with its creation being a trans-atlantic effort collaborating with world class musicians Aaron Sterling (John Mayer/Taylor Swift) and Jon Joseph (Børns/Gungor). Recorded in studios across America and the UK during the autumnal months, its sound is warm and ethereal, with songs that take a trip through the maze of melancholy, slowly progressing in narrative to perch within the palms of peace.
After a few years separated from the haste of touring, the project was given a focus and intention that didn’t rush it into being. ‘A Civil War of Head & Heart’ is the genesis of Crouchs’ endeavours as a writer and a refreshing example of words, melodies and instrumentation woven together over a few years to blossom as nature would have it.
Although you’ll find yourself new to his personal material, Crouch has spent the past years collaborating with many acclaimed artists such as Gungor, Gabrielle Aplin, The Brilliance, Zane Carney (John Mayer) and Lauren Aquilina.
His extensive national and international touring experience includes performances in arenas across Europe such as Wembley Arena and the O2, supporting artists such as John Mayer, HAIM, and Ray Davies. His festival appearances include Glastonbury, T in the Park, Hyde Park, V Festival, and the iTunes Festival.
