Lennie Gallant’s songs have been recorded by more than 30 artists internationally, including Jimmy Buffet. He’s a respected songwriter with nine albums under his belt, two of them in French, but it is in his live performances that his impressive talent really shines. With hard hitting songs, he chronicles the lives of people dealing with tremendous adversity and serious issues, and at the same time celebrates the beauty of lifestyle and landscape. His music has appeared in feature films, television series and in numerous theatrical productions. It has even been played in space, with astronaut Julie Payette sharing it with the appreciative crew on board the Space Shuttle Endeavour. With his intense delivery, Gallant reaches down to the very soul.
