23 year old Galen Crew is not new to the music scene. Galen has been active in music his whole life, but after a few friends got together in high school and formed a band, things got serious. Galen and his band mates found themselves in LA with label interest from the fine folks at Disney. But, ultimately that was not the direction that Galen took.
With Galen’s band mates going their separate ways, he decided to begin writing music as a solo artist. It didn't take long until he got the attention of producer Mark Heimermann (dcTalk, Downhere, Michael W. Smith). Galen and Mark started working together right away and soon found themselves with enough songs to put together a project called, "Better Than A Fairy Tale".
With the buzz of “Better Than A Fairy Tale” hitting the streets of Nashville, more opportunities to write with some of the biggest and best songwriters in Nashville came Galen’s way. Among those he has worked with include writer/producer Chris Stevens (Mandisa, Group 1 Crew, TobyMac), Roger Cook (“I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Talking in Your Sleep”) and Phil Joel (Newsboys). Phil was so impressed with Galen, he immediately invited Galen to be the opening act for numerous tour dates across the U.S.
In addition to performing and speaking around the country in recent years, Galen has also produced for various artists, including an acoustic version of the Newsboys CCM hit “Entertaining Angels”, and “Til Kingdom Come” for Joanne and Tommy Cash, a song written by Coldplay for Johnny Cash. Galen has since released “Acoustic Daydreams”, a quirky full length compilation of songs that he and Roger Cook co-wrote together. His 3rd project, the “Like Fire” EP, was released in June 2013. His latest release is a self-produced EP called “Christmas Spirit”, just in time for the 2013 holiday season.
