We’re very pleased to announce the signing of Galapaghost to the Reprise Publishing roster.
Galapaghost is the conception of singer/songwriter/one man arsenal Casey Chandler. Chandler is a recent graduate of SUNY Purchase, which he attended from 2005-2009 and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Music Production. He hails from the small hippie town of Woodstock, NY where he took his first baby steps towards becoming the musician he has blossomed into today. With no training on any instruments other than saxophone, he quickly picked up the bass when he was 14. Then moved onto guitar a year later and began singing and writing songs. Soon after, he developed a passion for the recording and production aspect of things, thus taking an internship in high school at a recording studio. After the internship, he had discovered his passion and was accepted into the Music Production program at SUNY Purchase. After graduating, he then moved to New York City for 6 months in 2009 and released his first two EP’s entitled “Our Lost Generation” & “Neptunes”. He has played many shows out in New York City clubs and bars. After growing immensely jaded about New York as a whole, he decided to move to Austin, TX in July 2010, which he now calls his home. Shortly after arriving in Austin, Chandler recorded his 3rd EP entitled “Runnin’”. This will be his last EP. Chandler writes, produced, records, mixes, and masters all of his songs entirely by himself. His song writing is predominantly, but not limited to indie folk based music, with a focus on ukulele for many of his songs. His song writing pulls from many different influences from Midlake to Simon & Garfunkel to Neil Young to Radiohead. He has recently finished a European tour with John Grant in the summer of 2010 as well as playing a prestigious slot on Later…With Jools Holland in September of 2010. He will be doing a North American headlining tour with John Grant in December of 2010.
