Goodbye Butterfield

by Hat Check Girl

This is a collection of stories rooted in a place, how deeply a life is affected by place, how the perception of a life is affected by place -- how it shades the character of memory, the sense of possibility, mythology, the scope of dreams.

Album Notes
Hat Check Girl, the collaboration between veteran songwriters Annie Gallup and Peter Gallway, is pleased to announce the January 2014 release of Goodbye Butterfield, their fourth recording in as many years. The duo is once again joined by Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, John Mayer) on drums. and percussion. Goodbye Butterfield’s 12 songs, ten of which are new Gallup/Gallway/Marotta cowrites, showcase the band’s literate songwriting, spooky ambiance, and hypnotic delivery. Annie sings and plays guitars, banjo, dobro, ukulele and lap steel. Peter is featured on vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, baritone guitar, mandolin, accordion, and keyboards.

"Gallway is the man with the tall-cool voice and elegantly understated touch on the electric guitar and keyboard, Gallup the siren poet with the breezy voice and sure touch on guitar, banjo and lap steel. They share a passion for their art and the details of sound, word and the spaces in-between. It is hard to overemphasize the cumulative effect of the care and attention they give to every aspect of their music. The arrangements are sparse enough to hear every note of every instrument and the hidden shade of meaning of each word and phrase. Even as they share a profoundly similar musical esthetic, they express their own distinct personalities. Gallway gravitates towards a retrospective voice, and many of his songs have a gently yearning quality... Gallup is more likely to explore a single moment or a singular reflection, patiently painting the picture with sensual details pushed to their limits by metaphors and musings... Musically, Gallup and Gallway’s collaboration is elemental and harmonious in mood and voice... This abundantly talented duo seems to have a genuine and gentle regard for each other that makes this a sophisticated and warm listening experience."--Music Matters Review
