She is from Bloomington, Indiana- where her heart really is, but hopes that someday she can say the same about new york city. She is obsessed with her family and she is never ever bored. She hopes you love her music as much as she loves the boys she writes about. She’s kidding about the boys- she thinks bio writing is awkward and just wants to break the ice by making bad jokes.
She plays venues all over New York City and has also toured Ireland and Japan (where she not only gigged, but was the first place winner of a sake chugging contest and runner up of a wet kimono contest) As for her less impressive accomplishments, she is the winner of Songwriter Hall of Fame's Abe Olman award for Excellence in Songwriting, and winner of The Great American Song competition. Galia, with much noise, has also caught the attention of one of her music idols, Shane MacGowan (from The Pogues), who wrote the liner notes for her sophomore album "Ooh La Baby", and is featured on two tracks. Also featured on her folk/pop album: guitar legend Marc Ribot (who simply describes Galia as a “fucking good songwriter”), Bashiri Johnson, Elvis Costello's rhythm section, and many other musicians that she loves to brag about. This November, she will be opening for Jools Holland for a few dates in England-ending at Royal Albert Hall, so you can be sure Galia has been bragging about that as well.
Galia will change this bio tomorrow and learn to act more confident and professional, hopefully also by tomorrow. from Galia Arad Homepage Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
