ASLennieGallantProfileShot.gif The Globe and Mail calls his performance mesmerizing and evocative. The Georgia Strait ...soulful and The Guardian describes it as dynamic ....high energy ...fun. Lennie Gallant takes is audience on a journey that encompasses a broad spectrum of imagery and emotion. At the 2001 East Coast Music Awards Gallant once again walked off with much of the hardware including: Male Artist of the Year, Roots Recording and Album of the Year for Lennie Gallant Live.
Lennie Gallant Live is a tapestry of some of his most celebrated songs woven together with new works, demonstrating why he is one of the most respected songwriters in Canada and beyond.

Gallant�s dedication and craftsmanship as a songwriter has resulted in several Juno nominations and eleven East Coast Music Awards. In addition to the songs on his five albums, he has written many (in French and English) for other artists, theatre productions, feature films, and other projects.

As an entertainer, Gallant's intense emotional delivery reaches down to the very soul of this audience, moving effortlessly through stirring narratives, comic observations and hard driving rhythms. Already a household name in Atlantic Canada, Gallant is gaining more and more attention abroad.

We�ve been used to welcoming visitors from Canada�s east coast in recent years. The biggest impression of all, though, could be the one Lennie Gallant makes when word about him reaches beyond the dedicated seekers of transatlantic talent who investigated this Scottish debut.

A native of Prince Edward Island, Lennie's music has taken him to all corners of the world. From the UK, France, Guatemala and the Middle East. His passion for intensive life experiences is reflected in the dramatic scenarios of his songs. Gallant�s writing is real - authentic. It has poetic lyricism that deals with issues of people's struggles, heartache and dreams.

He has shared the stage with artists as diverse as Ry Cooder, Natalie MacMaster, Roger Hodgson (Supertramp), Celine Dion, and Ron Sexsmith. His sold out Millennium New Years Eve concerts were beamed to more than 2.5 billion people in 60 countries by Newsworld's world wide coverage.
