A Curious Children's Album

Tony Galla

Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Tony Galla

was discovered in Buffalo, New York by renowned disc jockey Joey

Reynolds, recording his first hit single, In Love (Swan Records).

Climbing quickly up the Billboard charts, In Love became a national

cult hit in the U.S. and throughout the UK and Europe, where it

currently remains a popular hit. Heavily influenced by the soulful

sounds of artists like B.B. King and Ray Charles, Tony developed his

own bluesy sound and unique passionate style quickly becoming

the lead singer of the blues band, Raven. After releasing their first

album, Live at the Inferno (Discovery), rock legend Jimi Hendrix

helped Raven land a recording contract with Clive Davis and Co-

lumbia Records, releasing a second album, Raven and the single,

Feeling Good. Soon Tony could be found jamming into the wee

hours of the night with Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin at local night-

clubs in New York City. Tony toured extensively with Raven gain-

ing worldwide attention and opening for prominent groups like Joe

Cocker, Led Zeppelin, Procol Harem, The Byrds, The Young Rascals, Blood

Sweat and Tears, Three Dog Night, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and Buddy


Today, in addition to being a favorite performer at the

world-renowned Monterey Blues Festival, Tony was also invited to

participate in the Taipei Blues Festival and Bose European Tour. Hailed

by Jim Santella of the Buffalo, New York News… “Tony Galla was in

superb voice…evoking the spirit of master blues singers from New Or-

leans…Johnny Adonnis to B.B. King.” Tony’s blues CD A.S.A.P., re-

corded for Provogue Records and distributed in Europe, is a collec-

tion of original songs with a classic blues flavor. His blues sound is

traditional yet uniquely original and his voice is clearly identifiable.

Tony has also crafted and shaped his guitar skills to compliment his

heart felt style of singing that truly comes from the soul and reveals

his emotional passion for the blues.


Over the years, Tony’s illustrious career is multi-faceted as

an entertainer and singer. In loving homage to his Italian heritage,

Tony recorded a collection of his favorite Italian songs and arias

inspiring his first classic Italian language CD, entitled Dal Mio Coure

a Te (From My Heart to You). This labor of love inspired a second

Italian CD, An Evening In Italy garnering him worldwide attention

and an increased demand for bookings across the US, appearing at

the yearly Italian Festival in Monterey, California and at two of the

largest Italian Festivals in the U.S. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and

Buffalo, NY.

With his movie star good looks, Tony easily made the tran-

sition to film and television. His illustrious list of credits include:

The X Files, The L Word (Showtime), La Dolce Vita ( Hallmark Channel

Showtime), The Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Cybil Shepherd, Man On the

Moon (Universal), My Blue Heaven (Warner Bros.), The Wedding Plan-

ner (Sony), Mambo Kings (Desilu Prod.), Naked Gun 1 (Paramount),

Ricochet (Paramount), Seventh Heaven (Fox) and China Beach (Warner

Bros). Tony’s voice can also be heard on many national and interna-

tional TV commercials including Dunkin Doughnuts, California

Cheese: “It’s the Cheese,” Macaroni Grill, Nissan Japan, the California

Gas Company and even on internet websites.

Now living in Los Angeles, when Tony isn’t recording a

new CD, soundtrack for a film or doing a voice-over, he can be

found at gigs all over town like the 2006 SAG Awards at the Shrine

Auditorium; singing at Brooke Shields wedding; playing a party at the

homes of Danny DeVito or Arnold Schwarzenegger; performing with the

Long Beach Civic Concert Orchestra or performing live in Las Vegas to

a sold out crowd.

It is very rare to find a vocalist who has mastered such di-

verse styles of singing. Whether it’s blues, Italian opera, big band,

or caressing a beautiful ballad Tony’s passion and gift of music is

always revealed in his incredible delivery of a song. Tony will be

releasing his third Italian CD in 2006.
