Trying to box Ron Gallo up is like trying to clutch water in your hands. If he was to have a “thing” it’s build something, then destroy it. It’s his way to stay engaged and genuine in whatever he does. His only constant is that there is none.
After years playing in bands in Philadelphia in 2014 he decided to finally make himself his main project citing that “if I make music under my own name, the project can never break up, i can just die. It’s like a lifelong commitment to myself.”
PEACEMEAL, coming 3/5/21, sees Gallo going outside to make music with no plan or limits resulting in a colorful hodgepodge of 90’s hip-hop, r&b, weirdo pop, jazz, and punk – his version of “pop music”.
chickpee is the solo project of Italian musician, Chiara D’Anzieri. She began a professional classical career as a cellist at the age of 13, a child prodigy that spent her developing/teen years traveling from city to city in Italy performing with various orchestras and quartets but eventually decided to take a hiatus from her classical life for sake of her own mental health and wanting to explore other kinds of music and instruments. In June 2018, her and her partner, American musician Ron Gallo, met at a beach venue in Ravenna which lead to them falling in love and taking her first ever airplane to the United States and out of her home country for the first time. Currently living in the U.S., chickpee is working on her first full-length album "IMPORTED" which will detail her experience over the last couple years as she uprooted her whole life to move across the world amidst a pandemic and global chaos.
