ARTIST STATEMENT: “Bookish was written and recorded last winter — my first winter living on the coast of Maine. It was bitterly cold outside and there was ice and blowing snow, and I hibernated upstairs in my writing alcove and downstairs in “Gallway Bay Studio” to work on this record — solo, live-in-the-studio, unguarded, focused.

I’ve been unable to travel for several years because I have chronic Lyme Disease. It has turned my world upside down and made it very small. Touring and performing are out of the question. But I’m writing, constantly, and I’ve recorded these new songs to sound the way I would play them on stage if I were able to bring them to you in person.” - Annie

REVIEW: “Over the course of some 20 years, Annie’s produced a series of records that, while emphasising the theatrical and poetical aspects of singer-songwriterdom, have nevertheless satisfied immensely on both musical and literary levels and yet have always been pushing the envelope of the genre with surprising and stimulating results. Annie’s a natural storyteller, and each of her songs seems to function like a novella.” - David Kidman, FATEA

SHORT BIO: Award-winning songwriter, Annie Gallup, grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She studied dance as a child but music, country blues in particular, was her secret obsession. As she taught herself to play guitar (hiding in her room after school, copping licks from old Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and Dave Van Ronk albums that she found at the public library) it never occurred to her NOT to write songs for herself to play. So by the time she began performing publicly in the early 90s (after attending the University of Michigan School of Art and then moving west to chase her incurable wanderlust) she had internalized a songwriting style that was very distinctively her own, and that had evolved from her fascination with country blues, her love of words, a dancer’s sense of rhythm, and the sort of playful inventiveness that comes from doing something purely for its own reward. Annie has a dozen CDs on various indie labels, including Waterbug, and 1-800-PRIMECD and has performed at concert venues and festivals across North America. Now living in Rockland, Maine, she also records as the duo Hat Check Girl, with Peter Gallway.

SONG EXCERPTS

1. The Roads Were Deserted  The roads were deserted because of the war/Not many men my age had their own car/So that made him interesting. And his deferment/Which he only hinted at. I was curious...

2. Sputnik  On this day in history Sputnik was launched/Do you remember feeling left behind?/Then you grew up in the glorious days of the space race/As your god was crowded out of heaven by humankind...

3. Living Legend  I played the opening set, and that’s how we met/Fall of ’97, he was a living legend/I had stars in my eyes. No one had hurt me yet...

4. Misunderstood He’s too tall for the furniture, too bony for his clothes, he curls like a question mark in the doorway/He’s misunderstood but born to look good/Leaning in the doorway...

5. My Father Loves Poetry  My father loves poetry/That’s something he doesn’t yet realize/Because he’s yet to read a poem he loves...

6. Pseudonym  I wrote what I wrote not to blame or unburden/Or for vindication, but to open the curtain/And let the light in. And what I wrote scared me/But I’ll lay it bare behind my nom de guerre...

7. The Trouble With The Truth  When I learned my lover was a
connoisseur of women/I wrote a song called “The Trouble With The Truth”...

8. Fellow Traveler  Down by the riverbank he left a trail of evidence/I followed until the clues ran out and there he was/Smoke from his campfire tracking halfway to heaven/In a slant of sunlight. I was eleven...

9. East 10th Street  The artists coming up in New York in 1950/Had each other and not much else...

10. Sculptures of Women My neighbor makes sculptures of women/From tree trunks with a chainsaw. The noise is disquieting./A figure emerges from the sawdust riot/My neighbor’s a lonely man, from what I can tell...

11. Annie Proulx  So I never saw it coming, your lies, your masterpiece/I threw a book at you, I threw someone else’s story...

12. California  I moved to California once myself, for all the right reasons/I found work, I found love, I didn’t miss the change of the seasons/And nothing about it troubled me. There was nothing ever troubled me/I’m still haunted by all the things that never troubled me/In California....

Lucy Remembers Her Father is the eleventh solo recording from accomplished song poet Annie Gallup (she also records with Peter Gallway as the duo Hat Check Girl). Gallup layers her vocals, guitars, lapsteel, Gallway’s bass, and very little else to give this album a shimmering beauty and smoldering immediacy.

1. Paper - I am made from paper/Fold an airplane, I fly for real/ crumple into missile, I seem more substantial/Than I feel...

2. Loyalty - Back when we were friends she had a lover who was once an extra in a Woody Allen film/It might have been Manhat-tan/I never got to meet him, He was swept away. That was exhibit A/ Of how she inspired passion...

3. Bluebird - On the first day of my war/I floated over Norman-dy/Whole battalions bloomed up there/To dreamlike choirs of rifle fire and heavy artillery...

4. Being Her Child - There are times when the past floods through the future/I’m wearing her clothes but maybe I shouldn’t be...

5. Lucy Remembers Her Father - Who in the world is that, banging on the piano keys?/Dad’s house is full of strangers playing tune after tune...

6. Strange Boy - A lonely boy became a lonely man/I gave him a poem for a valentine/He wrote suggestions and corrections/In the margins/In the margins in red ballpoint pen...

7. Coyote Highway - There’s a dry creek that runs through this part of town/I call it the coyote highway./At night they follow it down from the hills and into my neighborhood...

8. Understudy - Mother, I’m your fondest fear, your darkest dream, your understudy/Your last best chance to get it right, beat me bloody...

9. All The Money In The World - And don’t forget the bag of money DB Cooper took the time he jumped out of a jet /In a business suit and a parachute and no one’s found it yet...

10. Il Ne M’aimera Jamais (He Will Never Love Me) - I went to his house, took off my dress/Stayed for three days. What a mess...

11. Story - He was late and I was angry/Because I was suspi-cious/But instead of apology or excuse/He told me this story...

12. Luminary - And will we go by Goldmine Jake’s for old time’s sake?/If I’m hoping for something I hope I know better/Is paradox lost on you, the bestselling author who/Can’t even write me a letter?

“Tough and literate, funny and sensual, it is an adventure through some alternative world in which songwriters really are poets and storytellers, alert to the rhythms of language and life, alive to nuance and humor and infinite fallibility. With her smoky yet quizzical voice, her deft phrasing, and her fierce intelligence, Gallup is an engaging but unpretentious performer." – Jeremy Schlosberg

“These are songs written by a woman who appears to have been paying attention to life. Whether feeling restless or bemused, reckless or careful, Gallup is a songwriter and performer of truly rare perception and consistently impressive ability.” - Tom Nelligan

Annie Gallup is the winner of numerous songwriting awards, including Kerrville New Folk. She grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, immersed in the arts. By the time she recorded her first album in 1994, she had internalized a songwriting style all her own that evolved from her fascination with country blues, her love of words, and a dancer’s sense of rhythm. She has toured extensively across North America, including appearances at Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Mariposa Folk Festivals, and at clubs from New York’s Bottom Line, to The Troubadour in Los Angeles. Annie is currently living in southern California. She performs solo and as half of the duo Hat Check Girl with Peter Gallway. Lucy Remembers Her Father is Gallup’s eleventh solo release.

A lifetime’s dedication to her art has made Annie Gallup an icon among people who take songwriting seriously. Unabashedly imaginative and sensual, her elaborate song-length works of fiction crackle with wordplay and pulse with insistent rhythm. Borrowing forms from ancient folk tales to modern poetry, Annie sings over her bluesy guitar figures as if sharing secrets. Not many songwriters take the kinds of risks that Annie does, and barely any can pull them off with such deft, startling mastery.

Annie grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, daughter of a printmaker and a woodworker. She studied dance as a child — dancing and performing came to her naturally — but music, country blues in particular, was her secret obsession. As she taught herself to play guitar (hiding in her room after school, copping licks from old Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and Dave Van Ronk albums that she found at the public library) it never occurred to her NOT to write songs for herself to play. So by the time she began performing publicly in the early 90s (after attending the University of Michigan School of Art and then moving west to chase her incurable wanderlust) she had internalized a songwriting style that was very distinctively her own, and that had evolved from her fascination with country blues, her love of words (Alice Munro, Grace Paley, Margaret Atwood, Stephen Dobyns), a dancer’s sense of rhythm, and the sort of playful inventiveness that comes from doing something purely for its own reward.
 
Ghost (Gallway Bay Music, 2015), Annie's tenth solo recording, features A-listers Gabe Witcher (Paul Simon, Eric Clapton) on fiddle, and David West (Cache Valley Drifters, Kate Wolf) on dobro and mandolin. Produced by Gallup and Peter Gallway, Ghost pairs Annie's award-winning songwriting with a string band sound.
