Denver-born, and recently relocated from NYC to Nashville, AJ Smith’s unconventional path to becoming a pop artist is reflected throughout his music, which has the uncanny ability to evoke a nostalgic desire for dramatic pop of decades past while sounding modern, fresh, and in-the-moment emotional. A flare for the dramatic is likely written into his DNA – AJ’s father ran away and literally joined the circus (as a promoter who was unafraid to step into the ring or even the “Globe of Death” for the sake of the show), while his Great Great Uncle was famed Cuban pianist Ernesto Lecuona, who composed the famed standard “Malagueña”.
It’s no surprise then, that Smith’s songwriting and performance abilities have earned multiple awards, including the prestigious Abe Olman Scholarship from the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a semi-finalist ranking in the 2020 International Songwriting Contest. Recent highlights include making his national TV debut on The Kelly Clarkson show, consistent airplay on SiriusXM, the cover feature as Performer Magazine’s Artist of the Month, collaborating with Martin Guitar’s launch of a new line of ukuleles (which included teaching a SpaceX astronaut how to play a Black Pumas song in space!)…and stories in American Songwriter, Good Morning America, CBS Radio, Spin Magazine, and more.

Galloway is an alternative pop band from Boone, NC that combines rock, pop, indie, and alternative influences to create their unique sound. Founded in 2017 as a solo project by singer/songwriter Lawson Galloway, the band released their first EP 404 in 2018, followed by another EP and single that same year. After transitioning into a full band, Galloway released their debut EP Think It Over in 2019 and their most popular single to date, Buzzcut, in 2020. With their thoughtful lyrics exploring themes of love, mental health, queerness, and existentialism, Galloway aims to create a welcoming and joyful atmosphere at every live show.
