Review in Inner Sleeve Magazine

I'm please to be the featured artist this week in Inner Sleeve Magazine. Check it out!

By the end of the album, the thread seems clear--gratitude. Interwoven with the melodies of A Single Thought, are the words of gratitude. One can take away that we should be grateful for our time, connections, and place on this planet--Ben Gallup’s album is a firm reminder of just that.

New Album, “A Single Thought”

I present my first ever spoken word album!
I think it's the truest creative expression I've ever done, which I mean in at least 3 different ways: 1) I subdued my inner critic/filter and made it fucking honest; 2) I fully released any concerns about whether other people would like or not, make fun of me, etc.; 3) I worked out all the words well in advance (already want to change a few!) but I performed them here without any rehearsal. The musical and vocal performances are (almost) completely improvised from a trance-like state, just sharp enough to keep playing my instruments. I did this in an attempt to let my subconscious express itself, free from analytical/calculated manipulation (I've been reading a lot of Surrealist stuff lately). Anyway, play this one at my funeral. (I don't plan on having one anytime soon!)
